Get Inked And Support An Animals Shelter
Get a tattoos at a fixed rate for charity plus win amazing raffle prizes
The Domestic Animal Rescue Group (DARG) is in need of funds and supplies. They're looking for donation of anything from food to paper rolls so they can keep doing their work.
Once a year Cape Electric Tattoo hosts a charity day to raise funds for a good cause. This year they've chosen the Hout Bay based animal shelter.
Head to Cape Electric Tattoo on Buitensingel Street in Gardens on Saturday 13 July from 11am and get tattooed for a good cause... and meet some of the DARG dogs too.
ALL PROCEEDS TO DARG
There'll be loads of tattoo designs to choose from and prices range from R800 to R1600. All proceeds will be donated to DARG. Cape Electric Tattoos' regular artists will be there on the day and tattoos will be done on a first-come first served basis.
Doors open at 11am and all available designs are pre-drawn, no custom tattoos will be drawn on the day. This is a cash-only event, and no under-18s will be inked.

I WANT TO VISIT, WALK OR ADOPT
You can visit DARG Hout Bay from Monday to Sunday 10am–3pm, to have a look at some of the socialised dogs and cats.
If you're looking to adopt an animal, you'll need to complete an adoption application form, have a required home check and pay the adoption fee of R795, which covers sterilisation, microchipping, updated vaccinations, updated deworming and updated de-fleaing processes.
If you'd like to walk the dogs, you'll need to complete a dog walking orientation and make a booking.
