Doing Good

Your registration does more than reserve a seat. R20 of every registration will benefit the SAVA-CVC, which is a non-profit organisation providing primary veterinary health care to animals from disadvantaged communities and education to pet owners and subsistence farmers. Their main activity is primary veterinary health care: vaccinations, parasite control and sterilisations. They also put a lot of emphasis on educating pet owners about basic care of their pets: general health, prevention of dog bites, nutrition, training, etc. This is at no additional cost to you.
