INTERNATIONAL Animal Week was celebrated recently. The purpose of this week is to recognise and celebrate the role that animals play in our lives and is a reminder to treat animals with compassion and respect.

It has been an amazing week at the Kloof and Highway SPCA with 19 of the animals in it’s care being adopted by their new families during International Animal Week.

Lisa Gadd SPCA outreach officer said: “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 SPCA.”

“There are so many ways you can contribute and support by adopting, donating and or getting involved by volunteering your time.

“This also includes 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 compromise the welfare of an animal or animals, and above all, treating every living creature with the love, compassion and respect they deserve,” she added.
