LOST AND FOUND
LOST AND FOUND ANIMALS
The City of Cape Town no longer admits cats and dogs to the state managed Atlantis Pound.
All unwanted, abandoned, stray, seized, confiscated and impounded cats and dogs from the greater Cape Town area are admitted to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.
If your pet has gone missing there is a good chance that it may be with us.
A person who rescues a stray animal is obliged to report the date and time of the rescue and a description of the animal to the Council within twenty four hours.
A person who rescues a stray animal is obliged to admit the animal to the Pound. Finders may not retain possession of the found animal unless due process has been followed.
To report a lost pet or to find out if your pet is with us, please call our Lost and Found Department on (021) 700 4166 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If stray companion animals eg cats and dogs are not claimed within ten days and stray production animals eg horses and cattle are not claimed within 30 days, they will go through the adoption process.
A minimum release fee of R500.00 is charged when any animal is claimed. The fee is used to help cover the costs of collection, care, micro-chipping and sterilisation.
