TEARS Animal Rescue offers a unique volunteering opportunity for animal enthusiasts looking to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals. The Pimp My Shelter event invites volunteers to revamp the shelter’s kennels and cattery, creating a more welcoming environment for the animals.
Volunteers and police are currently conducting a search and rescue operation to find Julie Goodness, an American postdoctoral researcher who has been missing since Monday morning in the Table Mountain area of Cape Town, South Africa. Goodness, who has been living in Cape Town for the past 14 years, was last seen in the Higgovale area wearing a purple/pink longsleeved sports top, blue jeans, colourful sneakers, an oversized jacket, and carrying a white canvas bag.
Volunteering in Cape Town is a rewarding experience and a window into the city’s social issues. The city is known for its natural beauty but is also home to many social challenges, including poverty, homelessness, and mental health. Volunteering allows engaging with these challenges and actively contributing to positive change.
