Because every tail deserves a happy ending…

360 Degrees From Loneliness to Love For NikNax

Possibly the best part of everything we do at the SPCA is our Happy Homings.

To see the joy on the faces of the new families and the sheer delight of the animals they adopt makes all the blood, sweat and tears worthwhile. 

Many of the animals who come through our doors have been rescued from situations of such diabolical cruelty it is hard to imagine.

Others have endured traumas such as abandonment, bereavement from a deceased and beloved owner, getting lost and finding themselves stray… their hearts beat as ours and they feel emotions just as deeply. 

Reading progress

We are overjoyed to share that Niknax, who was rescued from a covered metal drum in April, has found her loving forever home.

Niknax’s journey has come full circle, she’s gone from loneliness to love and even traded her tattered stuffed toy for the real deal – a new furry friend to play and snuggle with. Inspector Werner Taljaard, who rescued Niknax, was there to see her off. Known for his toughness in the face of animal abusers, there was not a trace of it as he said goodbye to Niknax. His parting words brought a lump to all our throats: “Take good care of her. She’s been through a lot, but she’s incredibly brave and full of love. She deserves all the happiness you can give her.”

Aaaah NikNax, you made a cowboy cry and reminded us all just how powerful love and compassion can be.

We are deeply grateful to Niknax’s new adoptive family for welcoming her into their hearts and home. And just as grateful to our supporters whose kindness and compassion made her rescue and rehoming possible. In the end, it is compassion that stands as the true hero of Niknax’s story.

Thank you to all our adopters and if anyone is ready to welcome a new pet into their hearts and homes, please do give us a call on 0217004152 or email at
