Caring for our fur friends
Posted on: 7 June 2021
At Agrimark, we love pets and believe that they should enjoy a happy and healthy life.
With the help of Agrimark Franschhoek, stray and abandoned dogs in the community now have a covered, snug kennel to protect them from the cold and wet weather.
Over the past 18 months, a local animal activist converted more than 450 plastic drums into kennels for homeless and stray dogs in the Franschhoek community. Agrimark Franschhoek store manager, Adrian van Wyk, says they are proud to be a part of this inspiring community project.
“Annette Phillips works at the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and has a huge passion for animals. She purchases these plastic drums in her personal capacity. Even though we’re not able to sponsor this project completely, we help as much as we can by negotiating with our suppliers to get better prices to ensure that Annette gets the best deals. This way, she is able to buy the maximum number of drums and she also gets extra blankets for the animals in need,” Adrian explained proudly.
