‘Dog Samaritans’

Vivian Pow Chong, Milnerton

According to some witnesses, they had noticed a courier company vehicle in the vicinity but could not confirm if it was responsible, as they did not actually see the incident occur.

A woman in a white vehicle stopped when she noticed our dog lying motionless, but breathing, in the middle of the road. Our neighbour, Helene Leeman, and some past and present Milnerton High pupils also saw her and immediately tried to comfort her. By this time, we realised that it was our dog involved.

In the meantime, the woman in the white vehicle went out of her way to fetch staff from the local vet close by for assistance and then transported Snowey and the staff back to the vet’s surgery.

When I reached the vet office, this lady had already left, so I was not able to ascertain who she was. If you were the kind Samaritan, please contact me at 073 906 4242. Special thanks also to my neighbour and the Milnerton High pupils for their compassion and assistance – it is very much appreciated.

The good news is that after four days of tender, loving care at the vet, Snowey is well on her way to recovery, with, thankfully, just a slight fracture to her hip bone.
