Water crisis spells disaster for animals – unless we act NOW! 

As most South Africans know, there’s a looming water crisis in Cape Town. Day Zero – the day the taps run dry – is looming … and we must act urgently to provide an alternate source of water for animals at the SPCA and in the wider community.

Dogs, cats, horses, cows, sheep and other animals can’t queue at water distribution points. When there’s nothing left for them to drink, they’ll start dying in their thousands within a matter of days.

We can’t let that happen
. If we act now – together – we can prevent a disaster.

We urgently need to install rain water tanks and purchase water tank trailers so that we can
get water to animals at our Grassy Park premises and transport water to animals in need across the Cape. Time is running out.

It’s going to cost around R100 000; and if we can raise the funds quickly, we can order the tanks and water trailers within weeks.

Your donation – made by clicking
here – will help save animals at our SPCA and help carry water to wherever it’s needed.

You may think a donation of R150 or even R550 won’t make much difference. But if all our animal-loving supporters, like you, give just a small amount here– the tanks and trailers will be paid for!

Please will you make your online contribution now?

One of the rewards of adopting a rescued animal is that you are saving a life and giving a deserving animal a new home. At the Cape of Good Hope SPCA we believe that life isbetter shared, and the best expression of this is to adopt a pet.

Myra is a small gentle dog, but when her family was in danger, she didn’t hesitate to protect them. Myra placed herself between a gun and her family, taking a bullet that shattered her leg to pieces.
