Petena’s + Pancakes + Pro-Life = Love

Michele du Plessis

Petena’s Pancakes in Sabie is not only the original home of the most delicious pancakes and waffles on the Panorama Route, but Pieter Pretorius (owner) and staff of Petena’s is also devoted supporters of Pro-Life Pet Rescue, Rehabilitation and Adoption Agency.

Three years ago, Pieter came back from Abu Dhabi, visited Petena’s Pancakes, fell in love with it and subsequently bought the restaurant.

Asked why he supports Pro-Life Pet Rescue, Pieter said that “their support, the love and the attention they give the animals are extraordinary. The name, Pro-Life, says it all. They do not euthanize the animals, they go out of their way to find good homes for the animals. It is all about the furry kids.”

“So many Sabie strays and unwanted animals find their way to Pro-Life. Pro-Life rely on donations and we decided to donate 3% of all purchases made in Petena’s for October to Pro-Life Pet Rescue Nelspruit,” Pieter said. “It is really just giving back a little.”

*Pro-Life Pet Rescue is a registered non-profit organisation. Founded and run by Karin Erasmus and friends since 2011. Real animal lovers with a passion to give pets the home they deserve.

“We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs and cats that are starving, abandoned or abused. Our mission is to give every pet that we rescue a happy home and haven where they can feel comfortable and loved. We don’t euthanize any healthy pets as everyone deserves a second chance!” *Information from Pro-Life web page –
