Because every tail deserves a happy ending…

Happy Wagging Goat Kid Tails

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

Ella and Jan recently immigrated to South Africa, and at the end of last year, they adopted two ponies from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA once they were settled in their new home on a farm.

Having always loved and had horses abroad, Ella and Jan visited the SPCA Farmyard and Horse Care Unit to adopt their two ponies.

For many years, Jan often mused how he would love to have some goats join the family.

Did you know?

Horses and goats make great companions for one another

Since Jan has always wanted goats, Ella unbeknown to him started the process of adopting two kids that were in our care, ”Ariel & Aero”.

Surprise family additions

Upon a successful adoption application, Ella brought a blindfolded Jan to the SPCA for a surprise. It was love at first sight for Jan when he met the two adorable kids!

The 2 little kids have settled in really well and are loving farm life with their new dad, following and helping in the garden.

Already they are great pals with the family horses and dogs.

Thank you, Ella and Jan for providing a happy home to more SPCA rescues!
