Make sure your pet can’t get lost by:

  • Teaching your pet a command such as ‘Stop!’
  • Enclosing your garden
  • Not leaving your dog outside public places unattended
  • Having your pet microchipped or buying him/her a collar or a disc with your contact details engraved on it
  • Ensuring that you exercise your pet sufficiently to keep it from roaming
  • If your pet runs away but is near enough to hear you, call him/her to you in a pleasant tone of voice. Do not shout – this may scare him/her away
  • Keeping your dog on a leash in public places to prevent him/her wandering off

*A RAO is an animal welfare organisation such as a pound or shelter, that has been registered with the City of Cape Town.

Supporting Man’s Best Friend

DARG is situated on a large plot in Hout Bay and provides shelter for rescued animals. After heavy rains on this month their dogs found themselves knee deep in mud as floods ran through their runs.

DARG relies on the public’s generosity and support through donations to keep afloat. Cape Brick, a manufacturer of quality concrete masonry in Cape Town, donated enough paving to fix 14 – 16 of the 27 runs that were affected by the floods and the results were truly admirable.

Local real estate company Chas Everitt Cape Town South donated a further R4000 worth of concrete bricks from Cape Brick to help DARG finish the low walls on some of the dog runs.
