It was to our great delight that Mrs Helen Zille – Premier of the Western Cape and a passionate supporter of animal welfare – accepted our invitation to become Patron of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA. She accepted the patronage in 2010, after visiting the Cape of Good Hope SPCA and meeting a few of the hundreds of animals in our care.
Allan Perrins is our Chief Executive Officer. All managers report to him – and he reports to our Board of Directors. The Board helps guide decisions regarding the SPCA’s survival and long-term sustainability. It comprises experts from the veterinary, legal, financial and business sectors, all of whom serve the SPCA on a voluntary basis.
Altogether, we have just over 100 permanent members of staff, assisted by a loyal band of volunteers who get involved in everything from dog walking and cleaning stables to assisting at fundraising events.
