We are so excited to finally be collaborating with TEARS Animal Rescue, to raise much needed funds for this non-profit organisation. TEARS are one of the country’s leading animal welfare organisations that rescue and rehome the many lives of dogs and cats around Cape Town – our Mother City and home.
This collaboration stemmed from our desire to give back and our unconditional love for animals. We started this journey with a morning visit to their shelter with some of our FitFam girls. We were eager to meet the fur friends and Tears amazing personnel. This is when the real connection was cemented. We fell in love with not only the beautiful animals, but the way they were treated and the work done for them to make their lives whole again.
“Our mission is to provide a sanctuary for companion animals in need, striving to end homelessness, neglect and abuse in the communities we serve, through medical assistance, humane education, rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming.” – Luke Kruyt from TEARS
In an effort to contribute to their mission, R20 from EVERY pair of FITGYMWEAR leggings purchased from our online store, will be donated to this cause from September to end November 2019. In addition to our collab, we have committed to a drop off of food and blankets at the end of each month!
Take some time out on your weekend and head down to Tears. You will find that minutes turn into hours and realise how important it is to spread awareness around animal shelters. The experience is heart-warming and overwhelmingly rewarding. #ADOPTDONTSHOP
