dog rescue

You can't give every lost or ill treated animal a home ... but you can help us give them shelter until they're adopted

When this little puppy was rescued from a tiny box in a garden in Hout Bay in January, she was only a couple of months old.

Timid and very frightened, there was no way she could escape from the box – which was in direct sunlight. She would have died of thirst and starvation if Inspector Matthews hadn’t come to the rescue.

Safe at the SPCA, Ella (as we named her) was examined, vaccinated, dewormed and micro-chipped and given a clean bill of health by our vet and put up for adoption.

And the good news is that Ella’s story has a happy ending! After two months at our Animal Care Centre, she found her ‘forever’ home.

Fortunately our new Animal Care Centre – due for completion before the end of the year – is designed to shelter twice as many cats and at least 75% more dogs. So if a dog like Ella has to wait weeks, even months, to be adopted, we’ll have the space we need to keep them healthy, safe and warm.

But, being able to provide a refuge for so many extra animals means extra costs: for food, care, warm bedding and veterinary treatment.

Please make your donation online now towards the cost of 'kitting out' each new kennel.


These are places of hope and healing, and each needs a very special person to ensure that it’s always ready to provide everything a rescued animal needs.

If you are able to contribute R600 or more, you'll be enrolled in our Best Friends group and receive a torch key-ring identifying you as a member of this special group.

But any amount you can spare will give you the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to provide a safe temporary shelter, which will be used by thousands of lost, abandoned, stray and ill-treated dogs in the years ahead. And you’ll be an integral
part of our work to rescue and re-home them.

Thank you so much!
