Work for Us

As the largest and oldest animal welfare organisation in the Western Cape, no other organisation has the same impact on the lives of animals as the CoGH SPCA does. Our state-of-the-art animal hospital; experienced and well-staffed Inspectorate; dedicated Horse Care Unit; large kennel and adoption centre and highly competent team of administrators and fundraisers, sets us apart from others.

The CoGH SPCA can make a difference because we employ some of the hardest working people, whose passion for animals helps them find ways to cope with the heart-wrenching abuse they are exposed to on an almost daily basis.

Despite the challenges of having to attend to an ever-increasing case load and numbers of animals handed into our care, they carry out their duties diligently and with compassion, enabling this society to boast a very low staff turnover rate.
