Joburg Wildlife Vet creates bracelets for a good cause

Posted by Elise Kirsten on 6 November 2019

The Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital does a superb job of treating wild creatures – for free.

The hospital is doing some remarkable work with highly-endangered pangolins, the second most trafficked mammal in the world, as well as many other wild animals ranging from pythons, honey badgers, duiker, hyena to Nile crocodiles.

However, all the hard work does come at a cost and so the organisation is dependent on donations and fundraisers.

In a brand new initiative, the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital has partnered with Relate to design special bracelets that will be sold in support of the charity.

The bracelets come in two colours, blue and bronze. The blue bracelet with the heart logo bead represents the hospital, and the proceeds from the sale of these bracelets benefit the hospital.

The veterinary staff is heavily involved in the rehabilitation and release of Temminck’s ground pangolins and so the bronze bracelet was created especially to raise funds for this work.

‘For the moment, they will be available at our hospital, R50 each, and are available in S, M and L sizes. (As a small team we are not in a position to courier bracelets just yet. Bracelets will be available in due course on Relate’s website though!) We would be thrilled if you would like to make a difference and create social change with us and Relate by purchasing some to sell in your vet practice/office/shop to add as the perfect Christmas stocking filler,’ the hospital posted on its Facebook page.

If you would like to buy one of these bracelets, you can contact the hospital at [email protected] or phone 0712481514.
