Yes, it is cold – even for our long-haired pooches – but here at the Sandton SPCA, it’s your generosity that’s warming us up this winter. THANK YOU! If you only knew just how much we appreciate your kindness: from your donations of cash and goods, to your messages of support.
Tyrone Wright is a business man taking part in the Sani2C, a 3 day MTB race in KZN, cycling the 1st day for the Sandton SPCA. Join him in supporting us.
At the Sandton SPCA we know that all animals’ lives matter, even those with special needs. A happy ending for Shelby with her new family.
Based on a complaint from a local veterinarian about Handsome’s condition the Sandton SPCA conducted a site investigation. We found a neglected dog in no condition to guard and an unlicensed security company at the source.
Sandton SPCA has laid charges of animal cruelty and bestiality against 8 scholars. We take all abuse very seriously.
A busy street and a tiny cage are no place for wild weavers. After a call from a concerned citizen our Inspectors confiscated these birds. A happy ending for them at least.
If it were not for the Sandton SPCA’s clinic, sterilisation and outreach programme in Alexandra, thousands more animals would be living in dire conditions. Find out why these visits are the highlight of the week.
Did you know that, in just one year, the Sandton SPCA responds to over 700 complaints of neglect and cruelty? In the same period, our Inspectors also issued around 820 legal warnings to compel people to act in the animals’ best interests.
The image of chickens roaming free in the fresh air and pecking in the dirt . . . able to stretch their wings in the sunshine . . . nothing could be further from what we found in the basement of a building in Johannesburg.
Sometimes, not even education, warnings or the threat of prosecution are enough to make people do the right thing for their animals. This was the case late last year when the Sandton SPCA confiscated three severely neglected Maltese dogs from a property in Buccleuch.
