On Saturday, 22 January, Cape Town experienced an extreme heatwave that saw temperatures soar to dangerously high levels and the Animal Welfare Society of SA had to contend with several incidents that made their blood boil.
Their first serious casualty for the day was an adorable Boomer-type dog that was found cruelly tied to a gate by a short length of rope in Olieboom Road, Philippi and based on her distressed state, she was saved in the nick of time.
“She is still quite young, very affectionate and fully house-trained which leads us to believe that she was abandoned by her cruel owner”, says the Animal Welfare Society of SA.
Unfortunately, she is unsterilized and has no means of identification so, after some lively debate about what to name her, the Animal Welfare Society of SA finally decided on Holly.
What Holly needs now is a loving forever home where (despite the temperature) she will melt your heart – of that everyone is in full agreement. Please call Lawrence on (021) 692 2626 or e mail [email protected] if you are keen to adopt her.
Cape Town’s reactions to the heat were just as hot as the temperature
