[Cape Town, 20 October 2017]: Cape Dachshund Rescue (CDR), a registered Non-Profit Organisation whose business it is to rescue, rehabilitate and suitably rehome dachshunds across South Africa, will be hosting its first ever fun dog show to raise funds for dachshunds in need. The ‘Mini Mutt Strut’ is open to all small dogs and will be hosted at Lilly’s Boutique Hotel & Daycare for Small Dogs in Joostenbergvlakte, Cape Town on the 4th of November 2017.
Cape Dachshund Rescue (CDR) is an organisation whose cornerstones are a quality pro-life approach and exceptional match-making skills. In a nutshell, they take in rescued or surrendered dachshunds and dachshund-type dogs and place them in suitable pre-approved foster homes, where they receive oodles of love and care in preparation for their new lives. CDR then networks the dog across its digital channels until the perfect home comes along.
“While our volunteers and fosters help make the vision of CDR not just a reality, but a huge success, we are heavily dependent on our supporters who donate to our cause,” says Kara Spamer, CDR Chairperson. “We rely on funds for essentials like sterilisations, other veterinary expenses, dog food and occasionally, transport costs for our adopted dogs making their way to their forever homes. But we believe in a positive and proactive approach and have thus taken it upon ourselves to host our first ever fun dog show, not only to raise funds for our cause, but to raise awareness in a relaxed environment as well,” she adds.
The ‘Mini Mutt Strut’ is set to host a number of exciting classes from ‘Best Trick on Show’ and ‘Dog and Parent Lookalike’ to the ‘Dachshund Dash’, which promises to see a horde of little long dogs making their way to the finish line at (ahem) great speed. Exciting prizes will be up for grabs in each class, with thanks to the event’s generous sponsors.
