About US

Helping the Voice Less Speak Up

Our Mission is to combat cruelty to animals and promote the proper care of ALL animals – through advancing awareness in the communities we serve.

Our Vision is to help create a community that LEADS South Africa in its care and respect of animals in homes, on farms and in the wild.

We are committed to mobilize a society that provides all animals, as a minimum, five essential freedoms:


Freedom from hunger and thirst


Freedom from pain, injury, and disease


Freedom from distress


Freedom from discomfort


Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being

Founded in 1936

We inspect facilities that keep animals: pet shops, sale yards, security companies, abattoirs, etc. to ensure the animals have the proper care and take action where standards are not met.

We also run the municipal pound for stray animals, domestic and farmed animals. It is our mission to reunite lost animals with their owners.

Our SPCA inspectors work in underprivileged areas, educating owners about animals care, and enforcing the Animals Protection act 71 of 1962.

One of our biggest challenges is to motivate dog and cat owners to sterilize their animals.
An oversupply of puppies and kittens lead to sick, old or unwanted animals being abandoned to die of starvation.

Fearless Team

We have the honor of working with some truly amazing people & the members of our team always go above & beyond their duty to help to protect all creatures:

Under Chairperson

“Animal welfare is my passion.  How you treat animals tells me all I need to know about you as a person.

They have no voice to say when they are hungry, injured or lonely. We are their voice and are committed to them.”

“Ek help ook met fonds insamelings. Ek “love” diere kinders en hulle welstand is vir my belangrik. Ek hou daarvan as mense diere het dat hulle na hul diere kinders moet kyk.

Skoon en warm beddegoed en hokke of bedjies, skoon kos en water bakke is vir my baie belangrik. Ek haat dit as mense se diere in die strate is, waar hulle seer gemaak of gesteel kan word. My siening is as n mens nog nie n dier gehad het nie, verstaan jy nie wat liefde is nie.”

“Vir my is diere alles. Dit is die onvoorwaardelike liefde wat hulle vir jou gee, of jy n maand weg is of n dag hulle is altyd bly om jou te sien. Hulle grootste ambisie is altyd net om by jou te kan wees. Lief julle baie”
