SPCA Mobile Clinic Team to Run Sanlam Peace Run

Our SPCA Mobile Clinics are a critical component of our commitment to delivering care to those most in need.

On 16 October 2022, our team of 5 Mobile Clinic Staff are running the Sanlam Cape Town 5KM Peace Run to raise funds for keeping animals healthy in impoverished areas.

SPCA Mobile Clinics Provide Excellent Veterinary Care for Communities in Need

Operating in the informal settlements and impoverished communities around Cape Town, the mobile units provide primary veterinary care and educate owners about responsible pet care.

Dipping, de-worming and vaccinations are among the vital services they provide. Animals in need of sterilisation – and those that are ill or injured – are transported to our Animal Hospital for further treatment, and returned to their owners afterwards.

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA’s Mobile Clinic Programme is of vital importance because it delivers both primary veterinary care and animal welfare education to the poorer communities of the Western Cape including Khayelitsha and Gugulethu.

We strive to prevent basic animal health problems such as worm infestation and skin diseases which are directly contracted by humans and thus reduce the burden on community health centres. 

Diseases in animals left untreated can easily spread to humans, particularly children, the elderly and those infected with HIV/AIDS and TB. 

Additionally, our multilingual Mobile Clinic Operators encourage residents to allow their animals to be sterilised as animal over-population poses a serious problem for many communities. Where animals are allowed to breed uncontrollably, the health and welfare of the animals and their owners are compromised. 

Visitors to the Mobile Clinics are asked to make a small donation towards the services provided, however, no animal is turned away in the event of an owner being unable to make a contribution.
