is PAWfully proud of the pet lovers and pooches who participated enthusiastically in October’s Doggy Day in PTA. Breaking the world record of bandanna-clad canines involved 765 gorgeous dogs, a sartorial success by any count. Even more classy was the financial fact that the participants collectively raised R24 500 which we matched and marked up to R 50 000. The fifty kay was donated directly to the Animal Anti-Cruelty League the same day. Every cent helps in their mission to eradicate cruelty to pooches, other pets and other animals all over the country and you helped make that happen, whether it was on the day or online.


Here’s what our partners in kindness had to say about what really was your and dogs’ day.


Dear David




Every now and then along comes a benefactor who stands out from the norm and in our opinion, is one such example.  From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you and your team for everything that you have done for our organization over the many months that have elapsed since we first made your acquaintance.  It was clear from the success of the recent Guinness World Record™ attempt that no expense or forethought was spared in the organization of this somewhat mammoth task and it was wonderful to have been a small part of the excitement and fun.  But even more important is the fact that we were made to feel that our opinion mattered and that we were an inclusive part of the process. Thank you so much to all concerned.


Thank you too, for the marketing that was a part of the exercise and indeed the fabulous gazebo, table, chairs, etc, that were so kindly given to us after the event.  Your kindness in matching the amount raised last Saturday was also such a great surprise.  To receive a windfall of R50 000-00 when we are so close to the Christmas holidays is such a blessing, as the propensity does exist for our intake to more than double over this period, adding further pressure to already stretched resources. The value and timing of your donation, therefore, is just perfect. To Kerry, we must also say a very big thank you. You have been incredible – patient, kind and always professional.


We take the opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a safe and blessed Christmas, with every success in the New Year.  We hope in 2018 to be able to grow and develop what has fast become a very important partnership with yourselves.


With warm good wishes



The AACL Team
