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 is better shared, and the best expression of this is to adopt a pet.

If you would like to adopt a pet, view all of the cats, dogs, equines and farm animals here at the SPCA ready to become a part of your home.

Find out more about the adoption process here.


You’ll get a healthy animal – each dog and cat is given a full veterinary examination and there is free SPCA medical care in the unlikely event that your animal gets sick in the first two weeks after going home.

You’ll save money – it costs R710 to adopt a dog and R770 to adopt a cat (including a compulsory Felv/Fiv infectious disease test) from the SPCA, which includes sterilisation, first vaccination, de-worming, pet identity micro-chip and ID disc.

You’ll know your new pet’s temperament – all adoption animals undergo a behavioural assessment and guidance is offered on their likes and dislikes.

There’s always a great selection of breeds and personalities to choose from – whatever your preference we are sure to have the perfect canine or feline friend for you.

You’ll save a life and also help another animal, who can take over the shelter space that you have freed up. Your adopted pet will be more appreciative than you could imagine and is likely to show his or her gratitude by offering you unconditional love.
