DOGS FOR ADOPTION

“All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.” ― Charles M. Schulz

Our kennels are filled with many wonderful breeds of dogs, all looking for good homes, and if you see any you are interested in, view the tabs below for more info on the adoption process.

For more information about a pet, contact our Adoption Centre on 0217004152 or email adoption@capespca.co.za

An adoption application will then be completed in person. This assists us in finding a perfect match for you and your family.
Pay a non-refundable adoption deposit of R100, which is included in the total adoption fee.
A home check will then be done. If you own other dogs&/cats  they will need to be sterilised
It is required that once your adoption is approved, a meet and great is arranged with your family and current dogs.
Once your application is approved and the animal is ready to join their new family, you will be notified when you are able to collect.
(Please allow roughly 7 days for the adoption process to be completed)

Costs
Dogs: R710
Cats: R770– This includes a Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FELV) test. Owing to the high prevalence of Felv and Fiv in the feline community, this test is now done before a cat/kitten is put up for adoption.
Adoption fees for both cats and dogs include sterilisation, the first vaccination, de-worming, an ID disc and a microchip.

If you own other dogs &/cats  they will need to be sterilised in order to adopt from the SPCA 

PLEASE NOTE: When applying to adopt a pet, a non-refundable deposit of R100 is required, which is included in the total adoption fee. Please e-mail proof of deposit – using ‘Adoptions’ followed by your initial and surname as the beneficiary reference – to acmananger@spca-ct.co.za

The home check
Once you’ve decided which dog or cat you’d like to adopt, one of our pre-placement officers will visit your home. This ensures that your property is suitable for the animal concerned. The pre-placement officer will also take note of the following:
• Condition of other pets
• Whether adequate shelter is provided
• Where the dog will sleep at night
• Size of property/height of wall
• Ensure that the property is fully enclosed

The following are also considered as criteria for adoption

• You must be over 18 to adopt.
• Your property must be fully enclosed.
• You must be able to afford the services of a private vet and have your own transport to take your pet to the vet.

Considerations when adopting

If you own other dogs they will need to be sterilised
• If you have a male dog already, it is often preferable to adopt a female to avoid dominance fighting.
• If you have other pets (especially dogs), we request that you first bring them to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA for a “meet & greet” with your new adopted pet.
• Often we have no history on a dog/cat, therefore if you have young children bring them to meet the animal.

We strongly suggest that research is done to establish the cost implications with regard to food, vaccinations, monthly de-fleaing, de-worming and vets bills (pet insurance is an option). Carefully consider whether you have the time required to successfully integrate the new pet into your household and the time to spend with your pet eg. walking, playing and training.
