Because every tail deserves a happy ending…

Their Welfare is Our Main Concern

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 recently received a letter from Claire Davidson, who was very surprised to find an SPCA Representative knocking at her door a few weeks ago:

“I am super impressed with the tireless and amazing work of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA – yesterday the doorbell rang, a lovely man called Trevor popped by to see how Patches was doing after ONE YEAR of being adopted. How amazing are these people at what must be a very hard job! Amazing.
PS in case you were wondering, he never had seen such a spoilt couple of dogs and cats!

“Thanks for all the good work you guys do, keep it up! xxx”, wrote Claire.

The SPCA takes pet adoptions very seriously. After looking after, healing, and more often than not completely falling in love with the furry creatures in our care, it is of utmost importance to us that when they go off to their new homes – these are indeed loving, cruelty-free, forever homes. That is why we not only have a very strict adoption process in place that has to be adhered to before any animal is adopted out, but we also make sure to check on the animals after they’ve left our shelter.

Thank you Claire, and all our other adoptive parents, for opening your hearts to shelter animals like Patches. None of our Happy Tails would be possible without people like you

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
