Animal Hospital

Our services include excellent veterinary care at our premises in Grassy Park and a fleet of four Mobile Clinics that serve indigent communities in the Cape Metropole.

Helping People and Pets

Staffed by three vets and a team of animal welfare assistants and orderlies, our Animal Hospital based in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town provides excellent medical treatment for sick and injured animals. Many of these are animals brought to the SPCA by our Inspectors or by owners who are unable to afford a private vet.

Sadly, we are seeing an increase in the number of people qualifying for special SPCA hospital rates, as pet owners struggle to make ends meet. Often their animals are the only source of comfort in times of hardship.

Our hospital treats thousands of animals every year, and we rely on contributions from our loyal donors and corporate partners to subsidise veterinary care for pets of poorer owners.

The SPCA can only collect owned animals for humane euthanasia after-hours as we do not have a vet on standby after-hours.

A Gift That Lasts Past A Lifetime

It was a bequest made by the late Val Gorfinkel that enabled our Animal Hospital to receive a much-needed revamp about 16 years ago. That upgrade helped ensure that 40 000 animals received veterinary help during the past year.
