We often read about how one random act of kindness can change lives. Brigitte Reeve-Taylor not only performed such an act, but went on to bring together hundreds of dancers in DLD to create an annual show that raises funds to sterilise animals. Since 2012, this not-for-profit organisation has raised over one Million Rand and sterilised 6,500 animals.
The journey began when Reeve-Taylor rescued a puppy from alongside a busy highway and discovered, on her journey to find help for the pup, the miserable existence that homeless animals endure in Cape Town and its surrounding communities. Sterilisations can, over time, make an enormous difference in reducing the numbers of strays and unwanted dogs on our streets. The money raised by DLD also financially assists owners who find the cost of sterilisation too high. Miles was lucky, he completely recovered and found his forever home – sadly this only happens for a lucky few.
The entertainment for DLD 2014 is exciting and programme includes artists from all major dance Companies in South Africa.
Organisations that have been assisted by this event include Deep South Animal Educare, Pug Rescue, Animal Outreach PE, Mdzananda Clinic, Animal Lighthouse, Uitsig Animal Rescue, Valhalla Park Outreach, Tin Can-Blikkiesdorp, Cat Trapping and Sterilisation, CSI, ART, Wupperthal Project, Grabouw Animal Rescue, Piketburg Animal Rescue, KAPS, Fallen Angels, Leaps, Soweto Animal Rescue.
Tickets cost R250 per person and are available via Computicket or 08619158000. One ticket equals the cost of two thirds of a sterilisation.
