We Step In: Ensuring Animal Welfare in Atlantis

Reading progress

Yesterday, our Inspectorate, along with the City of Cape Town Law Enforcement: Animal Control Unit, hosted an outreach event in Sherwood Park, Atlantis, to provide essential primary health care to the community’s pets. This initiative is particularly crucial due to the ongoing rabies outbreak in Cape Town And the unprecedented number of unwanted and stray animal being admitted to our facilities.

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA stepped in by offering free rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats and providing free sterilisation services for pet owners who cannot afford them. During the event, 196 pets received deworming treatments and rabies vaccinations, while 58 pets were admitted for sterilisation.

Why We Step In

Ongoing Support: Our outreach project in the Atlantis area will continue for the next six weeks, with ongoing free sterilisation services for local pets.

Addressing Needs: Atlantis, located on the far end of Cape Town towards the West Coast, often lacks access to animal welfare assistance. The SPCA is committed to daily operations in this area, investigating animal cruelty cases and working with the community to improve animal welfare.

Preventing Overpopulation: Providing primary health care for pets in underserved communities is vital, as many residents cannot afford private veterinary services. Without the SPCA’s support, many animals would suffer or contribute to overpopulation through unchecked breeding.
