Having reached a forced epiphany in Life, at age 62, I decided to literally walk away from my home and creature comforts and head South from Zinkwazi Beach KZN. I had no plan, no cash- just a backpack and a ton of faith.
I adopted two young Canis Afrikaanis dogs from a rescue centre to accompany my walk for companionship and early warning system as I am alone with no support structure at all. As my journey progressed it became apparent that these marginalized rural pets need outside intervention to assist with with vetenary and nutrition requirements.
Through my Facebook pages, Deadman Walking SA and Frank Owen, I managed to solicit a R7000-00 donation to the rescue centre where I found Sid and Crooksey.
I never suspected that my journey would take me in this direction but it is clear that this is a cause which I am willing and capable of supporting. I have met Vets who would be willing to help but being professionals in their own right, need to be compensated, even if , for their expenses alone.
Having chosen austerity to free me, I will need only funding to build a platform for a rural, portable, animal rescue centre, to administer medical attention, dispense food and conduct sterilization programs in remote areas of the Wild Coast, to begin with.
My effectiveness will be limited only by lack of funds and equipment.
