Yes, people gift pets on Valentine’s Day!

Many people welcome new pets into the household around holidays like Valentine’s Day. Often these pets are surprise gifts, which is something our team does not condone.

Since it happens, www.betterpet.com put together a fantastic guide with useful tips for these new pet owners – pet parenting basics, pet-proofing a home, scheduling a vet visit, budgeting, and what to do if a pet needs to be rehomed.

Here it is: https://betterpet.com/gifted-a-pet/

More great news from Rehoboth! Dr Oliver and the team from AANWO have been able to sterilise more cats! There is a massive cat over-population across Namibia, so every one we can sterilise means one less cat breeding and adding to this problem. These cats are from the old age home in Rehoboth, and the male with the half ear is the oldest of all the cats there. There are another five cats to be sterilised soon - thanks to your support this is all possible. Many, many thanks to all those involved!! ...
