Animals in your care for the 21 day lockdown

We know that your animals are important to you, but they may be more important than you may realise. Did you know that interactions with animals have a positive impact on mental health?

Going into this uncertain time, we know that a lot of us are anxious, scared and even in despair – our non-human companions are probably the beings that are going to get us through this trying time.

We have a team ready to act during this uncertain time and ensure all animals in need are attended to.

Please don’t worry! The SPCA will still be here to take care of animals during the upcoming 21 day Lockdown period.

23 of our most experienced staff including a qualified veterinarian are giving up their home comforts and leaving their families to ensure that our animals on-site are well cared for and to ensure that sick and critically injured animals can still be assisted at this time.


The SPCA will be operating in accordance with the gazetted regulations as governed by the South African Veterinary Council (SAVC) during the Corona Pandemic Lockdown from midnight 26th March – 16th April 2020.
