MANY fury creatures and four-legged friends in Jeffreys Bay have been rescued from a cruel death by two dedicated workers at Animal Pet Rescue.
Irma Morris and Cindy Muller say they do the job every day because they love animals.
The women investigate nooks and crannies se ladies go lurking behind shacks where the very bad cases of animal neglect are often hidden.
Recently, a Labrador was rescued after he had run away in fear of firecrackers and his plight was reported to Pet Rescue.
Three weeks ago, the women found him behind a shack in Ocean View, tied up, on a tight rope, with no food or water. The rope around his neck was so tight that it was gouging growing into his skin and the fur had fallen out.
The dog was identified by the owner and rescued. after they had taken the owner to the shack to identify his dog.
For Three mornings a week Pet Rescue goes into the townships as far as Mondplaas to help animals in need. Their duties include feeding the animals nourishing meals.
The dogs get so excited when they hear their bakkie as they know their meal of the week is coming, say the Pet Rescue workers.
Often the dogs are tied up with no cover, no water and no food. In the summer they are exposed to the heat and thirst and in the winter to the freezing cold, wet and hunger. Besides providing meals, Animal Pet Rescue deworms, dips and sterilises. get the females sterilised.
A trolly for donations of dog or cat food for Pet Rescue is available at the Equinox Mall Checkers.
