#savedbythedogs is a TEARS Animal Rescue and Hill’s initiative that aims to change people’s perceptions – casting rescue dogs as the heroes, rather than unwanted throwaways.

Once a month, the public is invited to come and walk a dog, play with the puppies and have some lunch-time fun in The Company’s Gardens, central Cape Town. “The healing powers of a wet nose and wagging tail are legendary,” says TEARS Animal Rescue centre.

And monthly thereafter on 13th May, 17th June, 15th July, 12th August, 16th September, 14th October, 11th November, and 9th December.
