StudentCo Wollies volunteer days

At StudentCo, we believe that a caring person can make an enormous difference in the life of an animal in need.

That is why, since late 2016, we have partnered up with the wonderful Wollies Animal Project in Pretoria North. Every week, we send a team of volunteers to give some one-on-one attention to the dogs and cats at the shelter.

The idea is simple – team members who have the afternoon free visit the shelter to walk the dogs, play with the cats and assist with any miscellaneous tasks the staff may need help with.

We also arrange regular food donations. When you book pet sitting services through StudentCo, you are also helping pets in need!

StudentCo is furthermore partnering up with Wollies for fundraising projects later this year – more detail will be added here once the details have been worked out.

We encourage you to have a look at the profiles of team members involved with volunteering days and to request them as pet sitters for your furkids – to us, their involvement with Wollies shows a deep interest in animal welfare and we are so proud of them!
