If you are considering getting a pet, consider these ten good reasons
to adopt from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA
We'll help you make the perfect choice for a life-long companion – our adoption process will help you select the right pet for you and your family.
You'll get a healthy animal – each dog and cat is given a full veterinary examination and there is free SPCA medical care in the unlikely event that your animal gets sick in the first two weeks after going home.
You'll save money - it costs R520 to adopt a cat and R570 to adopt a dog from the SPCA, which includes sterilisation, vaccinations, de-worming, pet identity micro-chip and ID disc.
You'll know your new pet's temperament - all adoption animals undergo a behavioural assessment and guidance is offered on their likes and dislikes.
There's always a great selection of breeds and personalities to choose from - whatever your preference we are sure to have the perfect canine or feline friend for you.
You'll receive great service from people who care - despite the large volume of animals, each animal is treated compassionately and with respect, just as our potential adopters are!
You'll save a life and also help another animal, who can take over the shelter space that you have freed up.
You'll be setting an example for others to follow and affirming that shelter animals make great companion animals!
You'll get a free bag of Hill's pet food, the pet food most recommended by vets, if you adopt before the end of March 2012.
Your adopted pet will be more appreciative than you could imagine and is likely to show his or her gratitude by offering unconditional love.
