Yvonne Roberts has dedicated her life to helping animals in need. She has been working in and around Port Elizabeth, Kirkwood and Addo for a couple of years now, dedicating her time to alleviate the suffering of animals in the local townships in and around these towns. She started Vonnie’s Animal Rescue and Adoptions about 6 years ago with one permanent volunteer who helps her. At the moment she has 89 cats and 12 dogs which she looks after permanently. She mostly relies on donations from kind hearted animal lovers and will also on occasion hold a boot sale to raise funds.
Yvonne and a team of volunteers hold regular outreaches in these townships where they deworm, dip, feed, inoculate and look after many animals in need. They also treat the children with sweets, colouring books, crayons, fruit and chips when they visit these areas. During a recent outreach at Valencia in Addo, a small farming community where only 10% of the people have work, they discovered boxes and boxes full of puppies. The situation is getting worse and they need funds to sterilize ±400 dogs. To do this they need R120 000. They have started small fundraising campaigns but to reach this goal, they need all the help they can get.
They are in desperate need to raise these funds and would greatly appreciate any donation they can get to control the animal population in this area and help save many animal lives.
