We recently adopted a dog from HAWS and I want to make special mention of
two ‘angels’ who work behind the scenes to make these types of adoptions possible – Razah and Amanda.

Glenda Pope and her grandchildren on the beach with their HAWS rescue dog, Waffles.

Razah, who has the gift to help lost and badly abused animals, especially dogs and cats, to return to health and build up trust in humans once again, if possible, enabling them to find ‘happy ever after’ homes. Also Amanda, always so friendly, encouraging and helpful with all the admin.

The Covid-19 lockdown was a very busy time for the kennels with so many pets being rescued and surrendered due to economic and other reasons. Terribly sad, but luckily our community has such a super team working tirelessly to help where they can.

One such surrender gave our family the chance to give a happy and loving home to ‘Waffles’, who belonged to a local vagrant and is well known by shop owners and customers at the Sandbaai Engen Centre.

He has enriched our lives with his gentle, loving nature. Many recognise him when we are out walking or on the beach. We cannot imagine life without him now.

Thank you, HAWS for the ongoing work by so many to help our four-legged friends. It is much appreciated.
