In addition to the injured, abused and sick community animals the SPCA rescues, we also take in up to 200 unwanted or abandoned pets each month.
The main reason cited by owners who give up their pets: “No time to look after them”. Many of these animals are, sadly, victims of impulse buying. Others are the result of over-breeding and as many as 20 cats/rabbits or 70 hamsters have been abandoned by individual owners. Other abandoned pets come to us with chronic ailments or behavioural issues that their owners had neglected.
How You Can Help
- Foster the animal at home or place it in a boarding kennel while you look for a suitable home for it
- Ask friends and relatives if they can help to foster or adopt the animal
- Put up adoption ads in Facebook groups, Classifieds sections, and on bulletin boards found in supermarkets and vet clinics
- Fill in our Rehoming Noticeboard form details
