Kenton-on-Sea is a small coastal town almost half way between Port Elizabeth and East London. Towns are roughly 25km from each other. The SPCA in our neighbouring town (25km) has a very large area to cover. In 2015 and 2018 we had significant outbreaks of Distemper Virus. With the ever increasing need for more community involvement the practice finally joined the CVC.
After registering with SAVA-CVC in January we aimed our first community project for 14 February 2019 – “Spreading the Love”. We were so lucky to have The Kariega Foundation involved with this project as they had a very enthusiastic team volunteering their time with organizing people and dogs, supplying TLC and managing our dip bath.
Our aims for 2019 is to do similar days on the neighbouring townships of Marselle and Klipfontein and to organize a sterilization day (or two) this year!
