JOHANNESBURG SPCA - CAN NO LONGER SERVICE KRUGERSDORP AREA
It is with great sadness that the Johannesburg SPCA is no longer financially able to continue servicing the Krugersdorp area with effect from 1 March 2017.
This decision was deffinately not taken lightly and followed numerous evaluations of sustainable alternatives, however the current and projected economic situation of the Johannesburg SPCA had to be taken into account.
Since 2009, the Johannesburg SPCA took full responsibility for the facility in Krugersdorp, financially as well as operationally when no one else could. In 2015 a decision was made to centralise the operations by closing the Krugersdorp premises and operating from the Johannesburg SPCA in Booysens.
We would like to assure you that the animals of Krugersdorp will not be forgotten. An alternative for people wishing to surrender animals to the SPCA would be the neighbouring SPCAs in Randburg and Roodepoort.
Stray animals that require emergency assistance / rescue etc will be responded to by the Animal Welfares in the Krugersdorp area and surrounds including the Johannesburg SPCA. Further information will be circulated in the local media.
SPCAs are community-driven organisations. Over and above their dependence on local residents for financial support (as no government funding is received), each SPCA relies on its community for involvement to enable sustainability. Sadly under the current economic environment all animal welfare organisations have been severely impacted.
