Mandela Day Pet Food Drive

Help spread some Madiba magic from NOW…. UNTIL Mandela Day!

With Mandela Day fast approaching, we are all looking for meaningful ways to spend our 67 minute - to celebrate an annual occasion that encourages acts of kindness. We can all agree that in the current climate, we can all do with a little more kindness…

COVID-19 and the national lockdown changed our day-to-day activities and had severe effects on many low-income communities. Many of these communities are feeling the pinch and need help in feeding their beloved pets during these difficult times –  and we would like to help them.

We have decided to kick off our annual Mandela Day project a little earlier, to help spread some Madiba magic from NOW…. UNTIL Mandela Day! Our Mandela Day 2020 aims are two-fold:

  • Donate 67 bags of dog and cat food to SPCA Bethlehem, situated close to our LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary.
  • Donate 670 pet food packs for dogs and cats in the needy communities of Vrygrond Ocean View, Red Hill and Masiphumelele – in partnership with TEARS Animal Rescue who services these areas in the Western Cape.

You can help us achieve these goals by donating towards our Mandela Day project. One community serving one purpose, from now… until Mandela Day.

You can support us in the following ways:

  • Gifts in kind (bags of food) – please contact us regarding collection if you are based in Cape Town surrounds or Bethlehem, Free State
