SPCA Continues to Mobilize Efforts to Protect Animals Amid Severe Weather Conditions

Reading progress

As Cape Town continues to battle with severe storms, including strong winds, heavy rain, and widespread flooding, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA has taken proactive steps to ensure the safety and well-being of animals across the region. With numerous animals displaced by the harsh weather or stranded, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA has ramped up its efforts, implementing a series of measures designed to offer immediate relief and protection.
Coordinated Emergency Response

In response to the crisis, the SPCA’s dedicated rescue teams are overseeing all rescue and relief operations involving animals. This includes the deployment of additional staff and volunteers to severely affected areas and the distribution of emergency supplies such as food and blankets. The SPCA is also working in close collaboration with the local authorities to bring aid to the affected animals.

Rescue Operations in Full Swing

Recent operations have seen the rescue of numerous pets and livestock from flooded zones, particularly in rural and low-income areas with poor infrastructure. The SPCA teams have also been busy evacuating animals from compromised areas and responding to distress calls from the public about animals in danger.

Increasing Emergency Callouts

With the storm intensifying, the SPCA’s emergency control room has been inundated with calls reporting animals in distress. Our response teams are diligently working to address each call promptly, despite the challenging conditions.

Impact on SPCA Facilities and Future Precautions

The severe weather has not spared the SPCA’s own facilities, causing structural damage and flooding in some areas. Emergency repairs and reinforcements are currently underway to mitigate further damage and ensure the continuity of our operations.

The SPCA is calling on the community for support during these trying times. Donations of blankets and animal food are urgently needed to aid in the relief efforts, particularly in the hardest-hit areas.

As Cape Town weathers this storm, the dedication and swift actions of the SPCA are vital in safeguarding the well-being of countless animals, highlighting the community’s resilience and compassion in the face of natural adversities. Contact our Inspectorate directly at 021 700 4158/9 or inspectorate@spca-ct.co.za to report any animal in distress, trapped or in need of intervention.

We urge you to open your hearts and contribute what you can to aid in these noble efforts, ensuring that no animal is left behind in their time of need. Please donate now!
