INTERNATIONAL Animal Week is celebrated every year from 4 October to 10 October. The purpose of this week is to recognise and celebrate the role that animals play in our lives and the need to treat all animals with compassion and respect.

Lisa Mörck the PR and outreach officer of the Kloof and SPCA said that it has been an amazing week with 15 of the animals in the SPCA’s care being adopted by their new families during International Animal Week.

“It is so heartwarming to see our animals getting a second chance at a happy home and we thank every single person and family for adopting from their local SPCA.

“There are so many ways you are able to contribute and show support for your local SPCA. You can support your local SPCA by adopting, donating and or getting involved by volunteering your time. Speaking up and reporting cruelty to animals.

“Taking a stand and insisting on free range and humanely produced foods. Avoiding any activities, that in any way compromises the welfare of an animal or animals. And above all, treating every living creature with the love, compassion and respect they so deserve,” she added.
