Driving the Sidewalk Specials Steri Drive
April 2018 - Sidewalk Specials, a South African non-profit based in Cape Town, are dedicated to rescuing dogs from abusive situations and off euthanasia lists.
From 16 to 18 March 2018, First Car Rental sponsored chauffeur-driven branded bus for the Sidewalk Specials Team three-day sterilisation drive in De Doorns in the Cape Winelands.
Their Steri Drive offered rural pet owners Parvo and Distemper snap tests, antibiotics, mange injections, inoculations, tick and flea treatment, deworming and sterilisation.
Over the three days, these devoted vets, who came from all over Cape Town, gave their time and skills for free, and worked 12 hours each day, treated just over 400 cats and dogs and sent them home with new collars and food.
First Car Rental was proud to sponsor safe, chauffer-driven transport for the dedicated Sidewalk Specials vets and nurses.
Pet owners from De Doorns and surrounds queued for up to 8 hours in the baking heat to have their dogs and cats treated.
Treated pets had their chains replaced with brand new leads and collars, and owners with sick pets were given free medication and food.
