Vienna’s Village luxury boarding and accommodation is the passion-project after a lifelong dream belonging to Jayne le Roux, a true warrior, and MediPet member.
Jayne read a story one day about an old gentleman who passed away, leaving behind his best friend & lifelong companion. She realised rescue organisations were begging for short-term foster homes to help little dogs like this and she wanted to get involved. Signing up to foster for @Cape Daschund Rescue, Jayne had no idea how her life was about to change.
The day before getting her first foster, she took her own little daxie for a walk in the mountains. Vienna got lost, for 8 days, while the entire community rallied to search for her. Says Jayne, “I remember the nightmare like it was yesterday, my precious angel alone on the mountain for 8 days. Miraculously my little fighter, my brave little girl found her way to safety”.
A week later her first foster arrived, and since then Jayne has fostered over 100 rescue dogs. The ever-increasing amount of surrendered pets requires a lot of space, and Jayne wanted to do more. It was always a lifelong dream to one day buy a farm for rescue dogs, so with the help of her husband and family, they bought a smallholding in Noordhoek and started planning the best pet-friendly environment for her fosters, while they waited for their furever homes.
Vienna’s Village, named after Vienna herself, offers luxury accommodation with private suites, comfy beds, an indoor chillout lounge and 24-hour surveillance. In addition to the outdoor play park and “Dog Bar,” guests and fosters alike can enjoy the splash pool, or just hang in their private cabana. Who doesn’t want a holiday like that?
