Sick dogTwinkle Toes gets a second chance!

The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA), Cape Town’s only animal hospital, recently welcomed their first penguin called Twinkle Toes into their care. This 6 month old penguin was brought in by another MyPlanet beneficiary, SANCCOB, to receive X-rays after she was rescued from Robben Island with minor spine injuries. Twinkle Toes remains in the care of the PDSA receiving physio treatment until she is able to walk.
