After a two-year break due to Covid-19, Paws on the Promenade is back and invites everyone to participate in this fun walk to raise funds for the Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha.
In partnership with Vondi’s Holistic Pet Nutrition, the event sees people and their dogs walk a 5km route along the Sea Point Promenade, starting at the lighthouse in Mouille Point.
The last event in 2020 saw 539 people and 352 dogs participate and raised over R48k for the animal clinic.
The Mdzananda Animal Clinic is an NPO animal clinic in Khayelitsha township serving up to 1500 animals per month through consultations, hospitalization, general and orthopaedic surgeries, continuous sterilisations, mobile clinics, an animal ambulance and homeless pet shelter. They also set a priority on community empowerment and education to ensure people become responsible pet ownership into the future.
A small number of homeless dogs for adoption will be at the event, and participants can 'rent a dog' to walk with during the event.
