Animal care center to open soon in Standerton – Ridge Times
The Northern Light Foundation (NLF) recently organized a meeting in view of the opening of an NLF animal care center in Standerton.
During the meeting, several discussions took place regarding the care and development of the center.
A committee has been created to help with its management, composed of Ms. Monique van der Westhuizen, Ms. Karin Ferreira, Ms. Riana Labuschagne, Ms. Veronica Joubert, Ms. Belinda
Dreyer, Ms. Elsabé Jordaan, Mr. Nico Jordaan, Ms. Nicolene Kasselman, Ms. Alida Podges and Mr. Michael Podges.
According to Mr. Hillel Coetzer of the NLF, their funds are limited and they are starting small.
“We identified the need for a center to be used by the community,” Mr. Coetzer said.
He stressed, however, that the center does not focus on abused and malnourished animals.
NLF thanked everyone willing to serve on the committee and make a difference.
The center will be at Kromdraai Kennels in Standerton and the opening is scheduled for March 6th.
The kennels are located at 7 Tambourini Street, Stanfield Hill.
According to the NLF Facebook page, two dogs and a kitten are already being cared for.
“We need dog food, as well as Royal Canin Kitten milk,” the message read.
Donations can be dropped off at 95 Coligny Street, Standerton or Kromdraai Kennels.
The SPCA which used to be in the industrial area of Standerton has closed its doors.
Mr. Coetzer concluded by saying that someone is always available at the kennel for the animals to be dropped off.
