You and your pooch are invited to the third annual Paws on the Promenade – a dog walk fundraiser in support of the Mdzananda Animal Clinic, Khayelitsha.

On Sunday 18 February at 9am, join in the fun as pets and owners strut their stuff along the beautiful scenic route of the Sea Point promenade. Starting at the Mouille Point light house, the route will extend to the Sea Point swimming pool and back – a total of five kilometers. Shorter turnaround points for old, tired and injured pets (or humans) will also be available.

“Our 2017 Paws on the Promenade was a great success with an attendance of 271 dogs and 368 humans. On a budget of just R1050 we raised R24 000. We hope to raise even more funds with this year’s event,” says Marcelle du Plessis, Fundraising and Communications Manager and event organiser.

Everyone is invited; humans without four legged friends are welcome too. A number of stray dogs up for adoption will be available to walk with you. You can book a stray pet to join you on this walk by emailing [email protected]

The event is hosted in partnership with Vondi’s Holistic Pet nutrition who will be sponsoring 200 goodie bags for the first 200 dogs to arrive on the day.

Raffle prizes and products will be for sale and delicious Bootlegger coffee will be available for purchase to get you started.

Tickets cost R40 per person and R40 per dog and are available on Quicket, by emailing. On day registration will start at 8:00am. Dress like your pet or wear something orange.
