SPCA animals will ask us to love them back


What if animals could speak?

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA is enabling them to do just that through its #LoveMeBack campaign – a unique initiative that lets homeless pets wear their hearts on their paws. 

Launching on Facebook in early September, just ahead of National Animal Week (2-8 October 2017) and World Animal Day (4 October 2017), #LoveMeBack aligns to the purpose of these two observance occasions by striving to change the way people think about animals at the SPCA…

‘Animals here are full of character, hope and joy – despite some of them having suffered neglect or abuse in the past,’ explains Belinda Abraham, Communications, Resource Development and Education Manager at the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.

While the SPCA’s #LoveMeBack campaign celebrates the true spirit of animals with heart and humour, it also aims to rally support for animals at the SPCA.

‘We understand that not everyone can adopt a pet, as much as they may want to. But it shouldn’t end there. People can still act, simply by helping us to care for animals until homes are found for them.

‘Many people say their pets are like their children, which highlights the commitment and connection between animals and their owners. Animals love us unconditionally and #LoveMeBack speaks to this bond because it’s about what happens when we love them back,’ adds Abraham.
