Walvis realtor Re/max rescues animals
RE/MAX Coastline Property Centre together with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has been running a fund raising event that started in February and runs until the end of June with the purpose of collecting as many pet related items as possible.
Claudia Lofty-Eaton, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Coastline Property Centre, situated in Walvis Bay said this is the biggest fund raising event Namibia has ever seen. Their office wanted to do something big this year and make a difference in the lives of as many animals around the country as they can.
“We all love animals and decided that joining forces with an organisation such as the SPCA would be a great way to give back and support the amazing work that they are doing for the creatures that can’t do anything for themselves.
The SPCA is funded largely by public donation and without this backing and the tireless work that the passionate individuals that work there put in, many of the animals in their care would be without shelter or food,” said Lofty-Eaton.
With the primary goal of preventing cruelty and neglect, those who work within the SPCA dedicate much of their time, sweat and tears to aiding animals in need through education, action and provision of care. They provide a safe haven to animals that have been abused as well as medical care to animals that require it.
Some branches of the SPCA in Namibia house more than five hundred animals who come from a variety of circumstances. While finding a loving home for the animals is a key objective, other forms of support are also greatly appreciated.
The public can get involved with the initiative by either making a cash donation by transferring the money directly to the SPCA or they can donate pet food and accessories.
Lofty-Eaton asked the participants to take photos of themselves dropping off their donation so that their images can be shared on the company’s Facebook page as it will also be a great way to keep a record of all the donations received.
After all donations have been received, the food and accessories will be evenly distributed among all the Namibian SCPA branches. This way, all shelters across the country will benefit from the drive and not just certain areas.
“We want as many people involved as possible and as many communities to be enriched by this initiative. As part of the number one real estate agency in the world, the team at RE/MAX Coastline Property Centre now wants to be the number one in the eyes of the thousands of neglected and abused animals and make a difference,” she said.
