Help the SPCA from having to close down animal adoption departments due to lack of funding

To safeguard the future of the Tshwane SPCA, and animals in the community we serve, the Board of Directors has taken the difficult decision to downsize current operations in order to cut expenses to the bone. This will unfortunately result in the retrenchment of staff.

The Tshwane SPCA does not receive any government funding and relies solely on the community for financial support. Our operational costs are high due to skyrocketing costs of consumables, fuel, electricity, water, etc. and to exacerbate the situation, the numbers of unwanted and abandoned animals have increased. Even in these adverse times, in the past 12 months we dealt with over 2 000 cruelty complaints, re-homed over 1 000 animals, sterilised 2 500 animals and reunited 600 animals with their owners.

The proposed restructuring will lead to streamlining of services, with adoptions and unwanted animals being dealt with at the Centurion branch only and the Animal Clinic and Inspectorate based at the Waltloo branch. We are also expecting the City of Tshwane to appoint a service provider to run an animal pound and deal with strays and collect carcasses.
