Mechanical Rotating Solutions charity project donates 3 tons of food to Wetnose Animal Shelter
MRS charity project , Charity Define, has come to the aid of over 450 dogs and cats by sponsoring 3 tons of dog and cat food worth over R50 000-00 to the Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre in Bronkhorstspruit.
Charity Define came to the help of Wetnose when reading about the plight of the animals and the dire need for food on social media and decided to take action in sponsoring the food to the animal shelter.
“We made contact with various organisations and found a partner in pet and animal food distributor, Bhenyati Promotions, who supplied the food at a discounted price to Charity Define and also offered to deliver the three tons of food for free to Wetnose.
Although the main impetus of Charity Define is to use our network of business partners to create community upliftment to the benefit of all in the community and not only individuals, animal welfare and especially the “RIGHT TO LIFE” is something very close to our own hearts and we could not just simply ignore the plight of the animals. Upon visiting Wetnose it was clear that a donation of R50 000.00 is a short term solution and we as a charity organisation challenge other organisations to also help and contribute to the welfare of the animals and support Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre’s “RIGHT TO LIFE” policy.”
Opened in 1999 the Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre was registered as a “RIGHT TO LIFE” organisation involved in the rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected and abused animals. “We have always believed that healthy animals should not be killed just because they are unwanted. Finding a loving home and giving a second chance to abandoned, neglected and abused animals is our primary concern” says Debbie Herselman, Managing Director of Wetnose.
“It is impossible to tell how long an abandoned or abused animal will stay with us until they find their forever-home. We are incredibly grateful to Franscois and Charity Define for their generous sponsorship of food for our animals and received the truckload of food with open arms knowing that we can take proper care of our animals for a while longer. To date we have successfully re-homed over 20 500 dogs, 1 700 cats, donkeys, goats, horses, guinea pigs, pigs and rabbits and with the generosity of organisations such as Charity Define we hope to grow this number even further. “says Debbie.
Charity Define was established in 2016 in Pretoria as a non-profit benevolence organisation set up in memory of Alan du Plessis. The organisation is managed under the auspice of Pretoria based engineering company, Mechanical Rotating Solutions.
The purpose and vision of Charity Define is to engage and partner with like-minded organisations in creating and maintaining goodwill by initiating and executing community upliftment projects within their greater operating footprint. “We aim to achieve our goals by using the expertise, skills, resources and mutual willingness of our industry partners in leaving a legacy at the various projects we aim to undertake.” says Franscois.
