So, why ‘To the Bone’?
The concept of ‘To the Bone’ means to feel at the core of one’s being - one’s essence – for one to be fully and deeply affected by an event, a thing, a reality. This not only encapsulates our intention on this journey but also drives us to incorporate our passion for animals and all living entities into a worthwhile platform.We love dogs, cats and all animals for that matter! That’s why when you SHOP on our online store, a portion of every sale goes to a disadvantaged animal shelter.
Every two months, we will support a different animal shelter. How will this work?
Together with the shelter, we identify specific projects that require assistance.
Targets are set to ensure help is being provided exactly where it’s needed.
Donations and proceeds from the online sales are used to provide specific predetermined resources for the projects. This means that we know the animals are benefiting exactly where intended and the effects of the funds aren’t being diluted.
Can we support local traders as well as the animals? We’re all just as important, right?
Yes! To provide the puuurrrfect symbiotic relationship and utter harmony between us two legged types and our four (mostly) legged allies, we are also constantly sniffing out and scouting for cool, new local products for our online store.But even with all these ideas, intentions, worthy craftspeople and animals, we need you to become the fibre of the composition – so, spoil yourself, your loved ones or your furry best friend and you’ll be helping an animal in need.
To help displaced shelter animals in many different communities and areas, ensuring support is as widespread as possible.
To run monthly/bi-monthly projects pushing us to constantly reach our targets.
To make a notable difference in the lives of these animals and the communities affecting them.
To help our customers also ‘do good work’ by shopping on our spectacular online store.
But, WHO ARE WE? We’re pretty sure you want to know!
We are a young couple based in Fish Hoek. Not only are we self-confessed animal-lovers in principle, but we also have five rescue dogs of our own. We also have the same amount of years’ experience in working in the animal welfare spectrum and have picked up much first-hand and hands-on experience from numerous shelters in a variety of realms. We are therefore confident that we know not only how to help but also know that we are truly making a difference. In addition, we are passionate about animal health and responsible pet-ownership and are enthusiastic in sharing our knowledge and experiences with you.
Our ultimate goal is to keep this dream as alive and fluid for as long as possible. We aim to consistently reach out to a variety of worthy animal projects where we can make a noticeable difference!
LET’S GET STARTED! No time like the present – no present like the time!
MANDELA STERILISATION DRIVE
Our current project is to sterilise 67 dogs/cats with Grace Animal Sanctuary in the informal Wesbank community (based in Cape Town, South Africa) by the 18th of July 2021 (Mandela Day). One sterilisation cost R480. On the day we will also supply the animal owners with pet food and a blanket.
The more funds we raise, the more dogs and cats we can sterilise, which will help with many problems within this community.
