SAID Newsletter – September 2018

Editors Note

SAID prepares for Spring as the dusty winds blow away the cold frosts and make way for new growth on the farm.

SAID is celebrating our 60th year and our events are all geared up to provide a diamond experience. Our Diamond 60th Celebration – a fabulous must-attend exhibition; our annually adored Dog Jog; a wondrous trip to be announced for our annual raffle, but you’ll have to read ‘til-the end!

We’ve had our Comrades Champion running for our animals; we honour the memories of our beloved furry collectors; we prepare with your help for the Touws River (Western Cape) first establishment outreach and we celebrate our three-pawed pals!

Our ever-green reminder to start your spring cleaning and help us assist the animals in our care through the re-sale of your pre-loved items. Don’t forget – we can collect!

Good bye winter lie-ins, lattes and late sunrises…

Managers Update

In our striving to drive access to veterinary care, SAID has relentlessly knocked on doors for investment into the mentorship programme for graduate Animal Health Technicians.

Being part of the animal welfare sector, that is an excluded focus of both corporate and government funding, it has taken dogged determination and implicit belief in the value of our contribution to veterinary care access, to realise success.

We are proud and elated to share with you that we have sourced a contribution that will see successive volumes of 10 graduates per year be given the unique opportunities of development and growth that we have prepared for them.

In keeping with our mission, the employment potential for these graduates will find their current 95% post graduate unemployment rate decrease. An equally amazing win will be the employment opportunities for un-skilled, semi-skilled and skilled people to support every successful graduate. Without a doubt our work has only just begun and there will be mountains we have yet to climb to ensure access to veterinary care for all. We are more than conquerors and have only success in the forefront of our minds – every animal deserves veterinary care, an owner fluent in animal care needs and a healthy life!

Contributions to this youth employment strategy will be gladly accepted, please contact Holly Doherty, Fundraising Manager, fundraiser@animalsindistress.org.za or 083-640-8824 for further information about how your care can benefit you.

In Loving Memory

Although they will never know, our dear furry collectors bring hope and light to all of fur-kind. So we honour and love them as best we can, for when their time comes, it is always too soon.

Although they are gone, they will never be forgotten. They left their paw prints on countless lives and through this, they will forever live on.

Spring is in the air!


A reminder to start your spring cleaning and help us assist the animals in our care through the resale of your pre-loved items. The convenience being that we can collect from you!

Please note we cannot resell broken electronics/appliances; soiled/torn clothing and linen; magazines and encyclopaedias; videos and bird cages
