Community Outreach & Mobile Clinic
Help us care for these amazing animals
The Sandton SPCA is the only animal welfare organization providing veterinary services to the animals in Alexandra township.
We provide primary health care to residents of Alexandra township who are unable to afford private veterinary services for their animals. This care consists of sterilisations, deworming and vaccinations. We offer these services from the clinic at our premises in Marlboro.
In addition, we offer regular clinics in the communities we support by means of our Mobile Clinic. Here we not only offer veterinary care but also use the opportunity to tell other residents about the importance of sterilisation and vaccination for their animals.
Our Mobile Clinic
Our Mobile Clinic was launched in February 2010 in a Nissan Interstar Panel Van, converted into a state-of-the-art mobile veterinary clinic. This vehicle was kindly donated by Mr Alan Friedland. The mobile clinic boasts onboard holding pens, a refrigerator to house sensitive medication, examination counters as well as storage areas for all the equipment needed to provide basic veterinary care.
The key objectives of our mobile community outreach programme are:
- To offer animal services and education to the underprivileged who have no means of transport.
- To provide mobile and qualified education to the underprivileged in our areas on animal welfare.
- To provide a mobile clinic and animal services to the community in our area not able to afford it.
With our mobile clinic we are able to focus on the less-privileged areas in our jurisdiction, which includes Alexandra and the southern border of the southern eastern metropolitan (Bertrams, Malvern and Bez Valley). Pet owners from these areas can bring their pets to designated points within the community from where we can vaccinate, de-worm and dip as required.
Our staff also get the chance to chat with the residents and educate them on how to care for their dogs and cats. We also leave them with printed handouts to further share with friends and neighbours.
Sandton SPCA is committed to curbing the problem of unwanted animals, and with our mobile clinic, we encourage people to sterilise their animals before unplanned litters occur.
As you can imagine this service puts a large drain on our resources, so donations are always well received.
There are also corporate sponsorship opportunities available for our Mobile Clinic. Please contact our GM on 011 444 7730 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
