ANIMAL lovers gathered at SPCA on Saturday to adopt cats and dogs in need of a new home. Visitors were spoilt for choice and were given the option to take a dog they like for a walk.

A drumming circle ensured a festive atmosphere as visitors to the SPCA viewed the animals and browsed through the thrift and the book shop for unique finds.

Several animals were adopted after being matched to suitable families.

According to SPCA PRO, Michelle Hannan the organisation takes care of approximately 60 to 80 puppies and dogs and 30 to 50 kittens and cats at any given time.

This includes the stray block, the hospital block and the animals up for adoption as well as some boarders. The amount of strays that came in October 2013 went up to 500 dogs for that month alone.

This year the organisation upgraded their dog kennels and hopes to expand and clear the property on to the land that lies between our northern fences up to the road by the bridge as this ground already belongs to the SPCA Amanzimtoti.

We wish to build more kennels, add a coffee shop, upgrade existing kennels and add a children’s entertainment area.

SPCA volunteers also sold bacon and egg rolls and cold drink in aid of the organisation, bringing in much-needed funds for providing this essential service.
