Horses doing much better thanks to support

The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA), situated in Alberton, would like to sincerely thank Meadow Feeds, a subsidiary of Astral, for their ongoing support for the 74 horses that were removed from the South African Army Special Infantry Capability (SAASIC) Unit in Potchefstroom of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF).

Meadow Feeds swiftly assisted the NSPCA with feed, lick blocks and expertise from their experienced nutritionist, to ensure that the condition of the horses would improve and that their nutritional needs were met at no cost to the NSPCA.

We simply cannot put into words our gratitude to Meadow Feeds for their ongoing support. At a critical time for our economy and the limited resources of the NSPCA, we would simply not have been able to feed 74 horses without this generous assistance from Meadow Feeds.

The horses have improved in condition and some have already gone to their new homes. Others are still available for adoption.

Meadow Feeds has always in the past been there for the animals and the NSPCA and we are sincerely grateful for their continued support.
