Some well known Cape Town Faces are getting behind Mutt & Meow Month to support the SPCA’s latest campaign that hopes to see at least 100 hearts and homes opened to animals in need during the month of May.

Jarrad Ricketts (performer/singer/songwriter), Lindy Lehto (Smile FM), Tapfuma Makina (Heart FM) and Chantel Erfort (Editor Cape Community Newspapers) all recently visited the SPCA’s facilities in Grassy Park to meet some of our adoption candidates and have pledged their support to help the SPCA find homes for at least 100 animals before our Mutt and Meow month concludes.

Adopters who #choosefureverlove during the month of May, are in for a special treat too!  Thanks to veterinary food brand UltraPet, every newly adopted pet goes home with a bag of UltraPet’s veterinary approved dog or cat food. 

Can't Adopt Right Now? Don't Worry, You Can Still Show a Shelter Animal Some Love!

Our animals ask for so little in return for their #fureverlove, please support Mutt and Meow Month by making a small contribution towards a rescued dog/cat’s daily care, sharing adoption posts and encouraging all your friends and family to #choosefureverlove of course to #adopt don’t shop.

It costs the SPCA on average R110.00 per day to provide a safe sanctuary for a rescued cat or dog -that’s R3 300.00 per dog/cat per month but you can make a very big difference with a small contribution: 

Food and Warmth for One Day
