Mandela Day Magic at The Cape of Good Hope SPCA

This Mandela Day, we were privileged to witness an incredible show of community spirit in a way that truly honours the legacy of Nelson Mandela!

167 extra pairs of hands showed up to work, and we couldn’t be more thankful. 

One of the tasks undertaken by volunteers during their 67 minutes of service, was the construction of kennels using wood from donated pallets. This extremely physical activity, undertaken in groups, saw 17 sturdy kennels being built by the end of the day.

The kennels will be distributed to deserving pet owners in areas of high deprivation over the next few days

Volunteers also came together to paint both the exterior and interior walls

It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do!  Everything looks so fresh and new and the transformation is energising.

There was also an overwhelming outpouring of love by way of generous contributions of dog food, blankets, and washing powder, essential supplies that contribute to the day-to-day care of the animals in the facility.

Shout out to all our Corporate Volunteers

We are immensely grateful to all the volunteers who dedicated their 67 minutes of service at the Cape of Good Hope SPCA this Mandela Day. We were humbled by the incredible display of community unity and encouraged in the knowledge, that so many hands and hearts stood ready to serve animals. To each and every volunteer, Thank you so much for the investment of your time, energy and resources.  You made a very real difference and we are deeply grateful for your support
