TEARS 2024 Calendar Competition Winners


Thank you to everyone who entered their beloved TEARS pets into the 2024 TEARS Calendar Competition in celebration of “second chances” and the commemoration of 25 years of rescuing, treating, rehabilitating, and rehoming vulnerable pets.

Every single TEARS pet is a winner in our eyes, but in terms of the brief, we made our selection of 12 winners on the basis of character, composition and impact.FIRST PRIZE and our 2024 TEARS CALENDAR COVER winner is TOADIE (Congrats to pet-parent, Carli Kapp!). He wins himself a Prize Hamper to the value of R1042.00 consisting of a ROGZ Cuddle Pod and a pet blanket, toy, large lick-able mat and a tug rope from HILLS Pet Nutrition (plus 3 x 2024 Calendars for his parents).
