Sabie MAST (Mass Animal Sterilisation Trust) will be hosting a golf day on Saturday, July 29 at the Sabie Country Club to raise funds for this worthy project. The golf day costs R250 per person, or to sponsor a hole, including four players, the cost is R2 000. Fee includes a light lunch supplied by Sabie Spar.
“We visit the dump regularly to befriend the animals, in order to be able to catch them. They are a slippery lot,” said Debbie Möller. “In order to curb the animal population explosion at the Simile refuse dump, the stray animals are caught and then delivered to Platorand Animal Clinic. The dogs are sterilised at a drastically reduced fee by Dr. Natalie Coetzee. The animals are kept overnight and returned to the dump the following day.”
“We provide food for the animals and have placed kennels and blankets on site for them to sleep warm. We have also removed puppies and placed them in foster care and with the help of Pro-Life Pet Rescue, they will be adopted. Thank you to Karin Erasmus (Pro-Life Pet Rescue) for donating blankets and kennels to the project and a big thanks to Adrian and Susan Daniel for making a special trip to Nelspruit to fetch them. We hope to attract customers to the free hotel. The nights are freezing and the kennels are warm with cozy blankets. Many are already eating at the restaurant,” concluded Möller.
The first prize for the golf day is a weekend for four at the Safcol Lakenvlei Forest Lodge. For information contact Debbie Möller on 082-222-2204 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
