CAPE TOWN: Mzananda Animal Clinic recently lost their main funder due to international budget cuts. This has left the clinic in a very difficult financial position. Their current “Become a #PawMember” campaign aims to sign up 3000 new members each donating R100 per month to cover the deficit. To date 420 new members have signed up.
Sihle Jonas, born and bred in Khayelitsha, has been using the Clinic’s veterinary services for many years to treat her three dogs Blue, BBM and Earl. Initially not aware that the clinic was an NPO relying on donations to operate, she was shocked to find out via Facebook that the clinic had lost its largest funder. Jonas signed up as a Paw Member, a term the Clinic uses for their monthly donors, and committed to donating R100 per month to support the NPO. Video: Supplied
