The Sea Point Promenade turned into a safe and welcoming destination for many Capetonians as well as few loving pooches who were the stars of the show on Sunday, August 29 at the second Paws-A-While Animal Adoption fair held under the aegis of the Cape Animal Welfare Forum (CAWF).
The event organiser, Carolyn Dudgeon is a DA Imbewu Political Academy Student working for the City of Cape Town and a passionate animal rescuer. Carolyn hosted an enjoyable, memorable and incident-free day that attracted the support of the entire CAWF, which had 16 of its member organisations attend the event, along with 26 stall holders who added to the carnival-like atmosphere of the day.
“We would also like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Alderman JP Smith for his belief in the event concept and support for a cause dear to both our hearts” stated Allan Perrins, Head of Communications, Resource Development and Fundraising for the Animal Welfare Society of South Africa.
“For those of us entrusted with the awesome responsibility of rehoming animals these events represent so much more than an opportunity for us to showcase our work and interact with our donors and other like-minded individuals. They represent an opportunity for us to save animals lives!”
The next Paws-A-While Animal Adoption Fair promises to be a spectacular one! It will be held on October 3 (International Animal Day) at Green Point Urban Park.
The Animal Welfare Society of SA looks forward to seeing more excited faces that are looking to adopt a few wagging tails, including the paragliders who hovered spectacularly above the promenade for much of the day patiently waiting for their local landing strip to be cleared.
