The Porcupine Quill Project

Update posted by Jennifer Deverson On Jul 06, 2017

So Monday was an official rest day in the training plan seeings as I'd done a hilly 15kms on the Sunday and well then Tuesday was crazy busy with normal consults and surgeries plus the Witsand vaccination clinic and then back for more surgery at the clinic so the sun had long left the sky by the time I got home. And yesterday, well yesterday I was full of good intentions and somehow they didn't materialise and then today disappeared in a blur of consults, surgeries and last minute shopping for a headlamp for running the Phantom Forest 12km on saturday night and stocking up on Gu and then packing bags for Knysna. We leave early tomorrow morning for Brenton-On-Sea, must must must fit in an easy 5km before sunset tomorrow. Have added a few photos from the Witsand afternoon to the main page, what a truly rewarding afternoon. We have a date with Yvonna and the dogs of Witsand next Tuesday.

Anyone remember the movie Field of Dreams where Kevin Costner built a baseball field in the middle of nowhere because he heard a voice saying "If you build it,he will come"? It was a nice movie and I have adopted a similar approach to my fundraising campaign "If I go out and vaccinate and educate, my people will donate".

This afternoon found me and Yvonna driving the streets of Witsand greeting everyone loudly and vaccinating every dog we saw. Far too soon the vaccines ran out and we had to settle for just spending some time chatting to the dog and cat owners of the community. We will be back with more vaccines as soon as we can and will start with sterilisation clinics in August.

You are just amazing, I am sorry it has taken me a while to do this but I was not sure how to go about it, only read bits and pieces and didn't put it all together until today. You have worked so very hard and it is such a shame that there has been so little response, perhaps now that they see how well you have done the money will pour in. Love you lots xx

Excellent initiative - the health of a society is evident in how it responds to it's most vulnerable.
