Bulldog Rescue 94.7 Cycle ChallengeCharity
The team at KB Safety and Industrial Supplies are Bulldog fanatics and when the owners, Mariska and Elaine, of KB Safety and Industrial Supplies started to look at organization to increase the Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) they were specifically looking for a like-minded breed specific rescue and they found Bulldog Rescue Angels (NPC2016/048760/08).
For the past two years KB Safety and Industrial Supplies became quite involved with Bulldog Rescue Angels.
Chantel Van Der Merwe, one of the volunteers and co-founders of BRA said that it’s been four years since the organisation was established and to date, they have rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed 95 dogs – 85% of them English Bulldogs.
“Bulldogs have such an appeal and as such can go for large sums of money. With money unfortunately, these dogs become big business for unscrupulous breeders. Families end up with an animal with severe health issues and most importantly, the poor dog suffers the most. Once people realise how expensive veterinary bills can
be, they end up abandoning these dogs. BRA was established with the dogs in mind. With the assistance from our corporate sponsors like KB Safety and Industrial Supplies, private sponsors, donors and members of BRA, we have been able to give many dogs new leases on life. All the hard work and long hours makes everything we do so rewarding and worthwhile. We really want to give a voice to these beautiful animals, and we are absolutely grateful for everyone who has assisted us,” she said.
In 2018 KB Safety and Industrial Supplies generously sponsored a number of riders to be part of Bulldog Rescue Angels 947 Cycle Challenge team! This year, KB Safety and Industrial Supplies raised the bar even more by sponsoring 11 riders in total to be part of the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg!
Our goal at KB Safety and Industrial Supplies is to raise money for every km that one of our brave cyclsist are going to cycle on Sunday 17 November. We can't do this without your help and motivation. We, as in all the Bulldogs at Bulldog Rescue Angels, would appreciate and love a donation; nothing is too big or too small. Every donation made and every km cycled will benefit those without a voice.
