Letter of Thanks

Dear Karen, Staff and Volunteers at KAWS


My 80-year-old mom and I often come to Betty’s. A visit to KAWS is always on the agenda as we feel so welcome there and enjoy the animals, people, and lovely shop. After our beloved Staffie passed, it took us a while to find the right new addition to our family. Eventually we were able to visit KAWS. Karin listened carefully to our needs and immediately identified Tatum as the right dog for us.


This week, on the 1st of July, Tatum has been with us for a year! She is such a special soul that fit perfectly with our family. We adore her and can not thank KAWS enough for this blessing in our lives. She is a gentle soul, fierce protector and adorable love-bug. We cannot thank Karin enough for her insight and assistance in choosing Tatum.


We kept the name KAWS gave to her, as Tatum means: “Cheerful bringer of joy” and it fits her nature perfectly!


To Karin and all the volunteers and staff at KAWS we are so grateful for the work you do. We are in awe of your kindness, determination, patience, and expertise. Know that you are appreciated!


With much love,


An-Maree Nel and Minnie-Louw Joubert
