THE SPCA SPEAKS FOR, PROTECTS AND CARES FOR ANIMALS
We couldn’t save ‘Sam’, but we can save other animals
Remember ‘Sam’ – the dog that was brutally killed by a group of children in Manenberg? Our hearts still ache over that horrific case … but the best we can do is do everything possible to prevent it from happening again.
How? By educating more children. Taking our education programme into more schools – especially those in areas where animal abuse and neglect is high – teaches not only compassion for animals, but also teaches kids what to do if they see animal abuse.
Our education team visits around 10 primary schools every month – reaching more than
1 000 children – in places of need such like Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Mitchell’s Plain and Delft. But it’s the older children – teenagers in high schools – that we need your help – and donation – to reach.
Impressionable teenagers are at greater risk of being lured into the dog fighting underworld. With little, if any, knowledge of the cruelty involved – let alone that it’s against the law – young people are easy prey for criminals. Our education programme will show them that dog fighting is a loser’s game – and that winners care for animals.
It’s important … young people are our only hope of creating a better life for animals. Please give our education programme your support and donation.
It costs us around R53 to take humane education to one child. With your help now, we can win over the hearts and minds of young people – before others do, for all the wrong reasons.
Donate towards the SPCA’s humane education programme today – the well-being of animals depends on it.
