The day was organised by dr Renée van Rheede van Oudtshoorn from the local Cullinan Animal Hospital, accompanied by veterinary students. “Our team is all about giving back to our communities,” dr Renée said. 

Puppies were cared for

She is passionate about grass root level education, teaching children from kindergarten age to Onderstepoort Veterinary and Unisa Health Technician students the art of paying it forward, living empathy on a daily basis, not just towards animals, but also to humans.
