Hush Pup­pies South Africa is embark­ing on an excit­ing ini­tia­tive to raise funds for Kitty and Puppy Haven’s new hos­pi­tal wing at their new facil­i­ties open­ing in Sep­tem­ber. Kitty and Puppy Haven’s vision is to improve the worth of ani­mals in South Africa and to ensure every ani­mal has access to vet­eri­nary care, food, love and shel­ter. To reduce the num­bers of unwanted ani­mals through edu­ca­tion and ster­il­i­sa­tion cam­paigns. To edu­cate under­priv­i­leged com­mu­ni­ties on the worth of ani­mals and ulti­mately themselves.

We began with ask­ing High Schools around Gaut­eng to take part in this excit­ing project in August. Their art stu­dents pro­duced some amaz­ing draw­ing, sketches and paint­ings of the Hush Pup­pies iconic Bas­set Hound, which will make up the calendar.

A pub­lic vot­ing process will reveal the top 13 art­work pieces which will form a 12 month cal­en­dar and cover for 2014. These cal­en­dars will be the heart of the fund rais­ing mis­sion. They will go on sale in Octo­ber online, at the Hush Pup­pies retail stores and var­i­ous retail stores nation­ally. Each cal­en­dar will sell for R120.00 incl Vat and all the pro­ceeds will go towards Kitty and Puppy Haven and the win­ning schools art departments.

Hush Pup­pies SA’s goal is to raise as much as half a mil­lion rand for this amaz­ing cause, but we can’t do it with­out you, so grab your char­ity wal­let and go and pur­chase a great cal­en­dar for a wor­thy cause.

Since the begin­ning, the beloved Bas­set Hound has embod­ied the easy-​going nature that is Hush Pup­pies®.
