A level 8 weather warning has been issued for Thursday, 11th July 2024, predicting a high likelihood of flooding and mudslides across Cape Town, Drakenstein, and Stellenbosch municipal areas.

The impending storm poses a grave danger to life, with widespread displacement of communities and animals. Our SPCA Inspectors are gearing up for a critical mission to rescue animals stranded in these life-threatening conditions, and we urgently need your support.

Last year Rover’s rescue was only made possible via equipment loaned to us by the City’s water and sanitation department. Read more about Rover’s Rescue here.

We are calling on you to help us equip our brave Inspectors with the essential gear they need to stay safe while rescuing animals like Rover from certain death. Help our inspectors to save more lives!
