Caring for your pets during the Corona pandemic

Caring for your pets during the Corona pandemic

In these uncertain and admittedly alarming times we ask for all to proceed with a calm, considered and compassionate response when faced with the ever-changing news reports circulating across our social media feeds.

To date there is NO evidence to indicate that pets can become ill with COVID-19 nor is there any evidence that they spread it to other animals &/ people.

What we do know for certain is that we all need to stand together and offer support to both humans and animals alike.

We are in this together #COVID19 #WEAREINTHISTOGETHER

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. 

The following regulations will be observed:

  • Telephonic consultations are not ideal however if necessary please Vets must take detailed notes.
  • Medical waste must be disposed of timeously and correctly to minimise spread of any diseases.
