Supporting Man’s Best Friend

DARG is situated on a large plot in Hout Bay and provides shelter for rescued animals. After heavy rains on this month their dogs found themselves knee deep in mud as floods ran through their runs.

DARG relies on the public’s generosity and support through donations to keep afloat. Cape Brick, a manufacturer of quality concrete masonry in Cape Town, donated enough paving to fix 14 – 16 of the 27 runs that were affected by the floods and the results were truly admirable.

Local real estate company Chas Everitt Cape Town South donated a further R4000 worth of concrete bricks from Cape Brick to help DARG finish the low walls on some of the dog runs.

  • Enclosing your garden
  • Not leaving your dog outside public places unattended
  • Having your pet microchipped or buying him/her a collar or a disc with your contact details engraved on it
  • Ensuring that you exercise your pet sufficiently to keep it from roaming
  • If your pet runs away but is near enough to hear you, call him/her to you in a pleasant tone of voice. Do not shout – this may scare him/her away

Making Sense of Your Water Bill | City of Cape Town

Water_Slide_water_v1The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department has launched a new and improved website, loaded with useful information that may assist residents, learners, students, educators and visitors.

The City is confident that the use of interactive diagrams, video clips, posters and brochures to present information in a more user-friendly way will significantly improve the experience of those visiting the Water and Sanitation Department’s new website, making it easier to access information and to interpret it.

‘For instance, by visiting http://www.capetown.gov.za/en/Water residents will be able to access a detailed explanation about water tariffs and how we bill them for water usage, and how to apply for a water management device, or to be connected to the City’s water system. Selling your house? We list a few things to consider and we provide a brochure for new homeowners as well,’ says the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg.

The website is loaded with useful information for those interested in water and the way in which the City manages this scarce resource, such as:

  • how to report faults
  • how to log account enquiries
  • how to prevent sewer blockages
  • how to apply for a plumber’s licence with the City
  • tips on saving water
  • latest dam levels and historic levels, dating back to 2011
  • educational material on the Cape Town water and sanitation system
