Prison labour enlisted to clean-up Nigel SPCA

Seen here in the middle is Ann Martin from Nigel SPCA, thanking Johan Maritz and Sipho Khoza from Nigel Correctional Services for reaching out to the animal shelter by cutting and eradicating overgrown weeds and grass at the premises on May 17.

In response to the kennel manager’s recent public plea for help and in an effort to cut, eradicate and control weeds and overgrown grass on the premises of Nigel SPCA, members from Nigel Correctional Services (NCS) visited the animal shelter on May 17, where they enlisted the help of prisoners to give the facility a much needed clean-up.

 
The clean-up drive forms part of the Department of Correctional Services’ Outreach Programme and gives inmates an opportunity to give back to society.

 
In less than four hours overgrown grass was neatly trimmed, shrubbery removed and the entire premises cleared of broken twigs and branches. Kennel manager Ann Martin expressed her sincere gratitude towards Chris Snyman (head of NCS) and said as a result of the trimmed grass, she no longer fears for the animals’ lives in case of veld fires.

 

 

“Our immediate need is food – any kind of dried or wet cat- and dog food will be welcomed,” she said.

 

 

For more information, phone Nigel SPCA on 087 087 0096 or 084 485 7029. The number to dial for emergencies is 084 485 7020.

 

 

Armed with brush cutters, ride-on lawnmowers and rakes, prisoners from Nigel Correctional Services rolled up their sleeves to clean the premises of Nigel SPCA as part of the Department of Correctional Services’ Outreach Programme.
