Supplying Basic Beds, Collars & Leads

We source old tyres, cut them in half, fill them with clean straw and line them with blankets. This makes for a very basic bed and we try and send as many dogs home from the vet with them as we can. We also give a new collar to every dog sterilized and distribute second hand collars and leads when we have them. These are very often given or made by caring family and friends to replace those that have been fashioned from heavy chains, twisted wire, electrical cable, thatching twine, bits of cloth or bark freshly ripped from trees.

In rural Africa, dogs are traditionally seen as working animals rather than pets and all the dogs we deal with are outdoor dogs. Used for hunting or security, they are a far cry from the 'pampered pooch' of the western world and very often this is the first time most of them have had a bed of their own, let alone a collar and lead. We are now making kennels for them too...

What a huge delight to see these dogs revel in their beds for the first time!
