Overview

As an animal shelter, the SPCA provides a safe-haven for animals in need of a home and an adoption service for abandoned, abused or neglected animals. In an average year, the Shelter finds homes for some 350 different animals.

All cats and dogs are spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter for their new home.

As part of the Shelter’s procedures, all dogs and cats entering the Shelter are assessed by the Animal Care Staff, and are dewormed and treated for fleas. All cats are tested for FIV/FeLV and are provided with a microchip and vaccination(s). All dogs are tested for Heartworm and are provided with a microchip and vaccination(s).

How do I go about adopting a pet?

Before you set about taking on a pet, please take time to consider the following carefully:

  • Can you commit to taking on an animal for the duration of its life, bearing in mind that; on average, dogs live 12 - 16 years; cats 16 - 20 years; rabbits/guinea pigs 5 - 6 years?
  • Can you afford a pet? The cost of keeping an animal can be considerable, particularly where medical expenses are involved.
  • Dogs require training, socializing and regular exercise. Do you have the time to commit to these activities?
  • If your pet developed behavior problems (e.g. barking, soiling in the house), would you be prepared to work to correct these problems?
  • Is everyone in your house accepting and prepared to have a pet? This can include children, spouses, parents, siblings and roommates.

If you have answered “Yes” to the above then please come and talk to us. Also read about the Adoption Process.
