We started almost a year ago as a face-book group, but because of demand we then decided to take the jump from the virtual world right into the real world.
We are a diverse group of people most of us with our own careers, jobs or business’s what joins us is our love of animals and our desire to actually go the extra mile to make a difference in a animal’s life.
Its really easy to read a newspaper/magazine or browse the internet and read about the plight of the many many abused, neglected and unwanted animals in our society today……its quite another to be brave enough to physically decide to try and do something to help!! Well here you really do get a chance to make a difference we welcome your help, advice, and would love you to also join as a volunteer.
We have done many functions to raise funds for ELAW, many were alongside Models Agency who have helped us with our Blazers to Ballgowns function at the Osner Hotel, The Model-thon at Hemingways Mall, our various teas and ladies evenings, and so much more. We also have an annual growl-a-thon fun day at James Pearce Park with Royal Canin.
Our funds raised are often used to pay-off vets bills for the under-privileged, spaying and neutering of animals and feral cats, purchasing of food for cats/dogs etc, especially for our feeding programme run alongside meals-on-wheels, enrichment and bird toys for the East London Zoo animals, out-reach programmes at informal settlements to provide them with pet food and flea/tick control medicine and so much more. We will help whatever animal we can, from domestic to wild, cats to horses, the one’s who can’t speak for themselves.
