In De Doorns, Sidewalk Specials formed Outreach and requested that the neighborhood children deliver the “sad dogs.” At that point, they carried Gigi over on a torn handbag strap. His owners no longer wanted him because of his broken pelvis, mange, and tick bite fever. Donations paid for the whole cost of the dog’s medical care when he was brought to the vet in Cape Town for an examination and treatment! But who would want to adopt Gigi permanently? It turned out that the ideal family was already waiting!
