Regen in Kapstadt, Sonnenschein in Khayelitsha

Der glückliche Streuner.Als ich heute Morgen auf der Autobahn zum IFAW-Projekt für Hunde und Katzen, der Mdzananda-Tierklinik unterwegs bin, wandert mein Blick zum Horizont Richtung Helderberg. 

Der Himmel sieht bedrohlich aus; es ist wohl Regen im Anmarsch.

A great owner, a great dog, a litter of super cute pups

Tue, 07/31/2012

Emmy is what we call a big producer. In her short life, she had added more than her share of pups to the local dog population. Coming into heat twice each year, she had not just had multiple litters, she had had big ones -- 9 to 13 puppies in each. In total, Emmy had produced close to 50 puppies and no one can refute that that equals…. a big producer.

IFAW has learned with sorrow of the tragic passing of Rita Miljo, founder of the Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (C.A.R.E.), a devoted and tireless champion for the cause of baboons in South Africa and primates around the world.

Mrs Miljo died in a fire that devastated C.A.R.E.’s premises near Phalaborwa, in the Northern Province on Friday, killing her and her dear “friend’ Bobby, a female Chacma baboon she rescued in Namibia in the late 1980s. Bobby was the inspiration for Mrs Miljo starting C.A.R.E. Three more baboons also died in the blaze.
