Appeal for food and shelter

It doesn't seem like too much to ask

But over the next six weeks or so, thousands of unwanted dogs, cats, horses and other animals will be denied even these few comforts.

As the festive holiday season kicks in, around 2 000 animals will be brought into our SPCA – mostly by people who simply don't want them anymore.

Some can no longer afford to look after their pets – or they're moving to flats or complexes where animals aren't allowed. Or they're going on holiday and can't be bothered to arrange pet sitters or boarding kennels. Or the animal was allowed to stray and breed and now there are six puppies or kittens to feed.

"It's only a dog," they say. Or only a cat. As if animals don't feel betrayal, fear and loneliness just as we do.

You probably wish you could take all these sad, abandoned animals home with you, and shower them with love and care. It's just not possible.


But your donation – made right now online – will ensure they do get a bowl of food every day . . . a snug place to sleep . . . freedom from pain and sickness . . . and all the love and comfort they need while we do our best to find them new homes with owners who’d never abandon their ‘best friend’.

Your gift of R280 will feed a dog for a month. R350 will inoculate a mother cat and her four kittens. R450 will pay for a cat to be spayed and microchipped before she goes to a new home, and ensure that she’ll never bring more unwanted kittens into the world.

SPCA staff and volunteers will work flat out all through the holidays – including Christmas Day – to make sure every animal here gets the necessary basics.

But only because your ongoing support makes it possible.
