This is the motto the women behind the newly established JBay Animal Rescue Sanctuary live and sleep by. According to Elamrie Coetzee the six volunteers all have one thing in common. “To try and save animals, improve and maintain their living conditions, educate pet owners and to alleviate suffering of animals. Our main focus is sterilisation, education, deworming of puppies and to find new and loving homes for unwanted puppies and stray dogs. We also provide home owners with collars. “The project is operated from our homes in our free time and at no remuneration. All funding received goes towards empowering pets in the townships.” The Sanctuary covers Jeffreys Bay, Ocean View, Kabeljous, Mondplaas and Paradise Beach. They can be seen every Thursday afternoon from 14:30 to 16:30 operating in the Ocean View area dipping dogs, handing out food and treating animals with skin diseases. “We try to encourage pet owners to make a donation of R5 to help cover our costs and to give them a bit of responsibility,” says Coetzee. According to Coetzee they hope to build their own kennel in the near future. The Sanctuary is in need of volunteers, dog food, clothing and goods for their jumble sale across the old Clicks every last Saturday of the month , old kennels, blankets, towels, dog beds, collars and belts to make col-

lars with are also welcome. Donations can be dropped off at the Jeep Factory Shop or at any major supermark. Monetary donations can be paid into their FNB bank account, account name Jbay ARS, account number 62467923291, branch code 250655. They are furthermore looking for volunteers who are prepared to fosters dogs and cats. They will be provided with the necessary food.
