Who are Bangers & Mash?
Bangers and Mash are two lovable strays who have found their home at Camps Bay Retreat. After being ditched on the side of a highway outside of Cape Town, they were rescued by Sidewalk Specials. It was clear that these two wanted to stay together.
At first, during Sidewalk Special’s Adoption Day (held monthly at Granger Bay market), they received only separate adoption, which was not what they wanted.
The Pet Places owners, who had previously fostered two Sidewalk Specials dogs, came by Adoption Day and connected with Bangers and Mash right away. The decision was made to adopt the two to live permanently at Camps Bay Retreat, one of the pet-friendly accommodations options at Pet Places.
“They interact with the guests a lot. People really like them. When Mash waddles by, you see these adoring looks on people’s faces” says Henri, head of Facilities at Camps Bay Retreat. Henri is one of several staff members who have volunteered as “custodian” for the doggie duo so that they will always have a main caretaker on site.
Mash is a very calm and sweet presence and Bangers is livelier. Both are exceptionally cuddly.
They are adjusting to their new home very well; they sleep in the lounge at the Manor House, and go on adventures throughout the properties many forested trials and through the garden.
