The plight of animals in need is very close to our hearts and supporting those Angels who dedicate their lives to animal welfare is vital. Animal sanctuaries and welfare organisations are always in need of support, as funding for furries in need remains a battle. When times are tough for humans, like it is now, the struggle for animals becomes worse.

One of these Angel organisations is the SPCA in Brakpan on the East Rand. With a small staff and volunteers, all women, serving a large part of the East Rand, they’ve come up with various creative ways to raise funds and awareness for animal adoption. With more and more people unable to afford proper care for their pets, the burden on shelters and organisations like the NSPCA and its branches, grows by the day.

As fur-baby parents, Jacaranda FM presenter Danny Painter and her husband, Phil Painter, were all geared up to support their local SPCA in Brakpan this past weekend in a fundraising and awareness drive. They were going to spend the night in a kennel, hoping to be “adopted” to freedom. In the week before this was to happen, Phil unexpectedly and tragically died of a heart attack.
