Montego Pet Nutrition was thrilled to unveil their brand-new housing facility at Dogtown SA, near Hartbeespoort, on 26 November 2016.
With the sponsorship of a second octagon valued at more than R150 000, more of Dogtown SA’s wagging-tailed friends will be living comfortably and enjoying the fresh air and space of the countryside.

The second Montego Pet Nutrition octagon will form an important part of the already established network at the Dogtown SA facility, where dogs are housed to be rehabilitated and trained and then later reintroduced to society and housed with a loving family of their own.

Each octagon comprises of 8 separate enclosures, each fitted with a beautifully painted wooden kennel. Special care has also been taken to leave at least one indigenous tree within each unit as well as a little garden. The octagons are secured by fencing to allow the dogs to live in a safe environment while still enjoying the beauty of their surroundings.

“We are so excited to be able to donate another octagon to Dogtown SA this year and help more dogs with housing. After eight years of working with Dogtown SA and supporting them where we can, it is just so wonderful to see how well these dogs are doing, because of the hard work that Tracy McQuarrie, Dogtown SA Founder and her team, put in every single day,” says Montego Pet Nutrition Marketing Manager, Wilfred Cawood.

“Our custom-built 50-acre home currently houses 154 of dogs. We already have some walking trails in place at the top of our property, both around the existing octagons and near the entrance area. We are planning a trail that will cut through a small forest area where we hope to have “pit-stops” for the dogs and their humans. There will be benches and water points where dogs and their humans can rest and replenish before continuing their walks,” explains Dogtown SA Founder, Tracy McQuarrie.

Since last year, Dogtown SA built an additional two octagons, one of which was sponsored by Montego Pet Nutrition. Going forward they have myriad plans that they would like to get done. First and foremost, they want to move all their dogs to their home on the farm, build an indoor training area where they can train their own dogs, as well as offer training to the public and their dogs. They intend on building a fully-functional veterinary clinic, investing in grassing all the gardens and putting a grey-water producing irrigation system in place and to increase their volunteer base.

“We don’t consider Montego Pet Nutrition to be a donor to Dogtown SA, but rather a major partner in realizing our dream of a self-sustaining, world-class rehabilitation centre,” says Tracy McQuarrie.
