From Chino, our Utility hero:
“ My mom says I am her Velcro dog – we
are inseparable. I am the yin to her yang, the cream in her coffee, the cheese to her macaroni, the lace in her shoe, the nut in her peanut butter. She laughs and she tells me that I have no dimmer switch. I am busy, energetic, always on the go. I am curious and adventurous. I have a sense of humour and am a bit of a clown. I am intelligent and loyal, free-spirited but still very dignified. I am a Dalmatian. I’m really good at playing, and I’m really good at running. Mostly, though, I’m really good at selective listening and obedience is not high on my list of priorities. I’ve taught my mom that giving me treats is an excellent way of bribing me to behave. As I matured, mom and I started thinking about a career. I’ve decided to follow my dream of becoming a model-slash-actor. My career is already off to a great start and I have appeared in magazines, TV commercials and on the internet. I dream of what could still be – perhaps my own YouChew channel or an Instagrrrr! account to compliment my Facebook page. Maybe a trip to Hollywoof or my own show on Petflix. Perhaps one day I could grace the cover of Dogue (like Vogue, but for dogs). But no fame will ever beat the things mom and I do together – walks in the forest, runs along the beach, catching my RFO as it hurtles through the air, diving into the pool after my Lighthouse or the challenge of spending hours trying to chew the legs off my Flossy Grinz. And then the best of all – letting out a deep sigh of fulfilment as I snuggle in mom’s arms after a busy day, gently sliding into dreamland as I show her, that I do in fact have a dim switch.

For the love of animals Katie Law, Financial Manager of RWHQ, gives of herself regularly to help save the Rhinos and is the driving force behind this Rogz Passion. She lives in Noordhoek with her two dogs and five cats whilst fostering other cats for TEARS.
What inspires you? I am obsessed with animals and nature and this is what initially attracted me to working at ROGZ. To combine something that you love with work is not easily achieved and is something everyone should fight for. I can’t live every day only worrying about my next payslip; I have to work to find a purpose in my life. I am trying to find it through my love of animals and nature. I get very inspired by people who have the same passions as me, but who manage to do so much more than I can manage right now.
“ Do what you love, and do it often.”

Why do you feel so passionately about this? So many animals find themselves in the predicament they do because of humans. So many of us seem to have lost our compassion and have become inhumane when it comes to the treatment and preservation of the planet’s animals. Most humans, in my view, tend to feel they are the only species that really matters. Because we are the cause of so many of the problems experienced by animals, it is up to us to protect them and find solutions to the problems faced by them. I believe animals can also show us how to live better lives. They teach you loyalty, determination, kindness, love - so many characteristics that many of us have lost.
How does your passion help with your quality of life? My passion for trying to help animals and succeeding sometimes (!) definitely adds to my quality of life and motivates me to do more. Life without passion or purpose can be soulless. In today’s busy world it is important to have something away from work to give your life balance. My balance comes from being in nature and with animals because I believe a balanced life usually means a happy life.
Do you have any wishes? Firstly, my wish for the planet is that more of us realise that animals and nature are vitally important and that we need to take better care of them NOW and not leave it for when it’s too late. We need to wake up now to the devastation, we as a species, are causing our planet. Secondly, my wish for myself is that I can be far more involved in helping animals on a MUCH more meaningful and impactful basis.
