After postponing our Mandela Day initiative this year, ARO decided to visit Delft in celebration of World Animal Day to hand out dog food to pet owners waiting to be seen by our AWA’s (Animal Welfare Assistants) on our Mobile Clinics.
As part of the outreach project, ARO partnered with an incredible group of ladies, K4C (Knitting for Charity) who knitted 67 beautiful beanies and scarves which was handed out to children with fruit and treats.
Thank you to all our supporters and Absolute Pets who donated heaps of dog food which we decanted and packed ‘doggy-bags’ that were handed out to pet owners in the queue. The smiles of appreciation that we received has made us realise how desperate the need of caring for the community is and that our work can be stretched a little bit further.
Our hope is that by showing more compassion to the owners and educating them on responsible pet care and other animal matters, that they in turn will assist us with our mission to reach as many animals as our resources will allow.
