Animal Health and Hydro are very excited to announce Our 2017 Fundraising Initiative.
On the 24 June 2017 Animal Health and Hydro will be holding an Underwater Treadmill Challenge in an effort to raise much needed funds and awareness for the Thanda Inja Project.
This unique, first of its kind competition will allow serious athletes and couch potatoes alike the opportunity to try out the Underwater Treadmill for R100 per entry, all of which will be donated to this worthwhile outreach programme.
The Thanda Inja Project was started in 2014 by Cheryl Gaw from Pug Rescue. This non-profit outreach programme serves to assist the communities of the Chris Hani and Gabone Informal settlements in Daveyton on the East Rand. Every two weeks they provide these impoverished and often unemployed members of this community with much needed free primary veterinary care. Cheryl Gaw was nominated the Lead SA finalist award for February 2016 for the incredible work she does on the Thanda Inja Project.
Over and above the normal activities of the Thanda Inja Project, the team are raising funds for the Nelson Mandela Day Spayathon taking place in July 2017. They plan to sterilise at least 67 animals, both dogs and cats. This drive will be in support of Senior citizens, pensioners, the unemployed and those that earn less than R7000 per household per month. In addition to being sterilised each pet will be vaccinated, dewormed and be treated for ticks and fleas.
This initiative is possible due to the assistance of a few private practice veterinarians and volunteers giving up their free time, as well as assistance from the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD).
