The club donated R2 650 plus dog food and blankets to SAVA CVC. This organisation’s
main activity is to give primary veterinary health care in disadvantaged areas. They treat 25 000 animals a year and their aims are to stop rabies and infectious diseases, control pet populations through sterilisation, and provide information to pet owners from poor communities.
