Give a dog a bone!

02 June 2019 | Events

The SPCA Windhoek hosts its annual Animals by Night fundraiser at the FNCC on Friday 14 June. The event pays tribute to the animals the association has cared for, having been adopted into loving forever homes, and to raise much needed funds for the animals still in their care.

The event features several talented local artists that put their gift towards raising funds for homeless animals in our community. They will be painting live for a few hours in different areas of the venue and as soon as they start painting, guests may start bidding on their creations.

During the course of the event, a silent auction will be held, with a variety of vouchers, prints and artistic photographs, hampers and outdoor items that can be bid on.

Furthermore, a variety of food vendors including the Goethe Institute Café and Indolicious will be selling their wares, while a cash bar is available.

The beautiful garden and venue of FNCC will be tastefully decorated with a creative layout of sofa lounges, bar tables, and round tables. A special guest DJ is responsible for entertainment while Whilzahn is the MC that evening.

The evening provides a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy with friends and fellow animal lovers.

The SPCA relies almost entirely on private and corporate donations. On average, the association houses 260 animals at its shelter daily, having taken in nearly 3 700 animals in 2018.

Running an animal shelter is expensive and with the current depressed financial climate, the incoming donations have sadly decreased. In April alone, the SPCA’s vet bills amounted to nearly N$150 000. In this light, events like Animals by Night are organised to raise funds for the many animals that the SPCA cares for and to be able to assist and offer a refuge to the homeless pets in our community.
