Our 2018 Paws on the Promenade dog walk was a great success with approximately 100 people and their dogs joining us for a lovely walk along the uMhlanga Promenade in KwaZulu-Natal.

From the teeny tiny to the big and fluffy to short and stocky, it was so exciting to see so many different types of dogs and their loving pet parents gather together in support of this wonderful community event.

Speaking of which, what a generous and giving community it is! Thanks to the generosity of our dog walkers, we raised R4090 and 50kg’s of pet food which all goes to Feeding the Furballs and Project Dog.

Project Dog brought along three-legged Casey who loved playing with all the other dogs, as well as Nala and Simba, two very happy Africanis dogs that took part in the walk.

Dogs and pet parents were spoilt with some fantastic lucky draw prizes, giveaways and gift bags.

Our lucky winners were:

  • Robert and his Jack Russel, Layana, won a fabulous Hill’s hamper consisting of Hill’s dog food, food bucket and some toys
