Give a dog a home this Sunday!

Note this Sunday, the 5th of October, off in your diary with a bright red pen! It is once again time for the annual Pedigree Give a Dog a Home event which will be taking place at the V&A Waterfront amphitheatre from 12 in the afternoon. The event sets out to show off the cutest, most adorable and most loving animals that find themselves in need of a home. The Emma Animal Rescue Society is an animal rescue organisation that holds firmly to its pro life policy and often houses up to 180 dogs and 120 cats at any given time. With these numbers of animals in need of a loving home it means that you could easily find the right cat or dog for your family strutting their stuff on the cat walk this coming Sunday!

The event will be presented by a host of celebrities from former Miss Universe Michelle McLean and Good Hope FM’s Bradley Knight to Western Province rugby greats such as Paul Delport, Schalk Brits and Ross Skeate, who will be walking down the cat walk with all the gorgeous pets!

After the Give a Dog a Home event you can also make your way with your new found cat or dog to the Blessing of the Animals event to be held by TEARS in the Company Gardens. This event is open to all and is held in honour of Saint Francis of Assisi and starts at 4pm.
