CLAW Children’s Book:
Zee Rescues a Friend
An education tool – this book has a message of pet care and compassion
CLAW’s free veterinary care and advice, plus their ongoing involvement with the community has been hugely successful. They give back to the people of Durban Deep, and that’s why the community trusts them. A lot of the time it’s the kids that report stray dogs and poisonings and walk for many, many kilometres to bring their dogs/cats in for vaccinations/ veterinary treatment.
This book, “Zee rescues a friend” will be an extra education tool reaching EVEN MORE kids in the township, reinforcing pet care do’s and don’ts.
The story is essentially inspired by each and every one of them, based in the informal settlement. It’s a happy, fun story that will inspire the children and one that they will remember forever and relate to.
We would love for this book to be in every classroom in the township, every house and read by every child so that caring for animals and showing kindness and compassion becomes ingrained in their natures.
Our hope is for this book to be a tool that builds a better society, for kids to grow into kinder adults. When a child has empathy for all living creatures then they have empathy for other human beings. And this can only mean better things for South Africa.
So that’s why we hope you share in our love and passion for this project. It’s not just a story, it’s real life, and it can change the world!
