In the same way two humans can form a very close and special relationship with one another, dogs can too. A senior dog named Caesar and a puppy named Saskia fell in love with one another, but their hearts were broken when they were separated. There was no guarantee that they would ever see each other again.
Before the dogs met, they lived in different areas of Blikkiesdorp, a township in Cape Town, South Africa. Life in Blikkiesdorp is definitely not filled with luxury – it is one of the poorest areas in Cape Town, and there is high level of gang violence to deal with. Blikkiesdorp is definitely not the safest place to live, even for two pups.
Three South African women, Rosie Kunneke, Dinielle Stockigt and Clarina Hanekom, wanted to do something positive for all of the animals that they’ve seen struggling in Blikkiesdorp. They started Tin Can Town, an organization that provides life-saving animal services to cats and dogs. The organization also neuters and spays animals, provides veterinary care and offers food. They’re an around the clock organization that is constantly ready to give a helping hand to any animal that needs it.
