Pack for Paws

Boschfontein Mountain Lodge cares by supporting Pack for Paws

Our family is made up of animal lovers and it is because of this love for our own animals, that we support the wonderful team from the Cluny Animal Trust.  

The Cluny team is made up of only eight people, who all work tirelessly by providing much needed veterinary care to animals of the poor here in the eastern Free State. They don’t get any funding from the government or the Lotto but rely solely on donations. Check out their Facebook page and what they are able to achieve (with very little) will astound you 

We at Boschfontein Mountain Lodge support them as much as we can, and that is why we joined the Pack for Paws initiative. It is a simple idea that can make a huge difference as it helps to support animal veterinary welfare. 

As Boschfontein Mountain Lodge offers self-catering accommodation you’ll need to go shopping for your visit. If you would like to support Cluny, all you need to do is pick up a few of the items on the Cluny Wishlist (see below) and then use any space you have in your suitcase, car boot or trailer to pack supplies the animals desperately need. 

 In the upstairs lounge area at the lodge, you will find a box with a Pack for Paws tag. Please pop any items you would like to donate into the box and when you leave, we will make sure that they get to the Cluny team. It is as easy as that!

  4. Old (or new) blankets and towels (always needed);
