Blanket Drive

One of our fellow Beagle Huggers does a blanket drive every year… and Karen Hill is at it again!


A message from Karen & Gavin:


Dear Beagling friends

The cold snap has well and truly hit Joburg hasn’t it! And of course its the time of year that all animal lovers worry about warmth for strays and animals in disadvantaged communities.

Four years ago, my husband Gavin and I started our own dog blanket drive to try and help out animal charities and rescue organisations in the Johannesburg area with blankets.

Every year, our donations from friends, colleagues and family got bigger and bigger and last year we were able to donate 900 BLANKETS to a series of organisations that included SAINTs, CLAW, Midrand SPCA, Randburg SPCA, Animals in Distress, Barking Mad and others.

If you would like to help us try and beat this record with whatever donation you can afford, we’d be hugely grateful! We’ll also keep you posted on where all the blankets go and share photos of the handover to these organisations.

The attached photo shows what last year’s 900 blankets looked like, complete with sniffer beagle inspecting the delivery  and pictures of blankets delivered to a few organisations.

Thank you!

Karen and Gavin Hill



K HILL, Standard Bank, Acc: 410 27 185 3, Branch: Sandton.

Please use your initial & surname and the word BLANKET as reference.



Karen has promised to update us with details once she has done the donation.


Thanks very much in advance!
