“I’m scared, and I miss my family maybe I’m not a puppy anymore but I still loved them!” – “I’m a good DARG” – Adopt don’t Shop.
DARG is an organisation that helps rescue sick and abused animals in the greater Hout Bay communuity, the Distemper Virus hit the organisation recently after they rescued some puppies from the Imizamo Yethu community, their 67 minutes for Mandela Day programme was in jeapordy but with the help of the Valley Farmstall they had a new venue for people to come and support our furry little best friends.
On the invitation we were given 67 ways in which to help the organisation in their efforts to continue their great work, on the day there were foodstalls, live music, a kids play area and a clown to keep people entertained. Even this guy enjoyed himself with the attention…
There were tables lined up for volunteers to help make chew toys for the dogs out of offcut pieces of material, some enjoying the prospect of putting their creativity to the test, others like myself struggling with the basic design o_O. For a more easier task you could fill dried up hooves with peanut butter, a nice little treat for the animals.
An auction was held from weekends away, a biltong making machine to a celebrity Chef coming to your house and cooking up a storm (don’t worry it’s not that Ramsay guy).
The weather played along nicely to make this a perfect day to give back, pity we did not get to walk the dogs but as the saying goes MAKE EVERYDAY MANDELA DAY so we have plenty of time to go back and help out as often as we can.
Every person in the world can make a difference, no matter how big or small their contribution. “It is in your hands now”.
Chickens roaming freely….
miniture horses for the children to pet and a trampoline this was a fun-filled family day out spent with amazing friends – Our 67 minutes for Mandela Day and we have the “Groufie” to prove it..
