HELP US: Contributions to help keep the SPCA functioning will be taken in on Sunday’s Trail Walk Picture: MADELEINE CHAPUT

The morning will see families, including their furry members, walk the 5km mountain bike trail near Cafe Du Jardin.

The walk will start at 9am, leaving from Table 58.Each participant will receive either a free beer (over 18s) or a cool drink upon completing the route.

“We’re hoping as many people as possible will come and enjoy the morning with us and bring their pets along with them,” SPCA fundraiser, Margaret Pautz, said.

The funds raised on the day will all go towards the various running costs of the SPCA, including medication and pet food.

“These funds will most likely go towards our medical bills, which is where they are needed the most right now,” Pautz said.

Between de-worming medication, vaccinations and various other treatments for the animals at the SPCA, the non-profit organisation spends R40000 to R60000 a month on medical bills.

“Pet food is another one of our greatest needs, so hopefully this fundraiser will help us cover some of those costs as well.”

Entry fees are R40 for adults and R20 for children under the age of 12. All dogs must be kept on a leash and a poop scoop and packet are requirements as well.

This scenic walk through the mountain bike trail promises to be a fun-filled family affair, in support of a great cause.
