Mr Mostert, an unemployed elderly man whose only income is his SASSA pensioner’s grant contacted the Cape of Good Hope SPCA after his beloved dog, Rambo was attacked in the street with stones by youngsters from his area.
Rambo was roaming the streets as Mr Mostert does not have fencing and the Cape of Good Hope SPCA brought him into their hospital for treatment as he suffered a fractured leg.
According to the SPCA, Mr Mostert is poor and lives in an impoverished area, and spent the last of his savings money to buy a wooden kennel for Rambo to sleep in.
“He is terrified that Rambo will fall victim to abuse once again if he returns home, as he does not have a fence and of course, he would never want to keep Rambo on a chain (The SPCA will also not release Rambo if he is going to be kept on a chain).”
At the moment Mr Mostert who misses Rambo dearly walks to the SPCA from Eerste River to come and visit him while he is on the road to recovery.
The Cape of Good Hope SPCA is now appealing to the public to assist them to improve the living conditions of Rambo so he can return home with Mr Mostert. Can you help?
- At least 20 meters of wire fencing.
- 20 wooden poles to plant into the ground.
- A few bags of cement to cement the poles to the ground.
