Pennies For Puppies – Comrades Marathon

back a buddy comrades marathon ark animal puppy shelter

Gloria Pucciatti who adopted a little puppy from Ark a couple years ago, has decided to run the Comrades Marathon in aid of our animal shelter!! This is her story…

Two years ago, I was blessed with a gorgeous little girl, Lily, who I adopted from Ark Animal Centre. She had never had human contact and the last two years have been a journey to hard earned love and trust from her.

My Comrades journey started in December 2009 when I was told that training for the Ultimate Human Race could not be done in  six months, especially since I had never run a kilometre before. But despite the odds I completed my first and Comrades and  have been hooked on long distance running ever since.

Comrades 2012 was a tough year, blood, sweat and many tears later, I came in with 1 minute to spare, a broken woman. It was with this in mind that I realised it was nothing in comparison to the journey of survival of my Lily and many dogs like her.

Ark Animal Centre and Comrades have changed my life in their own unique ways and this is why I ask of you to support the Centre through my journey to help raise funds and awareness for this amazing charity!!

Gloria is aiming to reach R10,000 for the Ark puppies – click below to donate and help her accomplish this amazing adventure!

Be an Ark Angel – Sponsor a Puppy! ♥

By donating R350 per month or a fee of R2000 for 6 months to Ark Animal Centre for a specific pup, you will help ensure that all the caring that we love to provide is available. You get to choose your own pup to sponsor and by doing so, receive the following:

♥ Unlimited visits to come and love your new cared for pup

♥ A love letter, with a photo, from your sponsored pup every month telling you all that’s happened during that time.

♥ If the pup doesn’t already have a name, you get to choose one

♥ You have first choice to adopt the pup

If somebody comes along and falls in love with your sponsored pup, you will be notified and are given the choice whether you are able to adopt him/her. If you cannot adopt them, we will happily re-home them and give you the option to either cancel the sponsorship, or choose a new, cuddly, loveable pup to sponsor instead.

Your name and the pup’s name will be posted on Facebook, letting everyone know that you’re an ARK Angel!

Your name will also go underneath a photo of the pup on our board at the office
