AN intervention by the Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor, Mongameli Bobani, curbed the risk of closure for the Uitenhage SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) after he handed over a 12-month lease extension on January 10.

This means that the extension of the lease ensured that it will now be legally possible for the municipality to pay the SPCA for services rendered and that its operations can continue unhindered.

Late last year, the SPCA was facing challenges with receiving payments from the municipality as a result of administrative problems.

Towards the end of last year, Bobani took it upon himself to ensure that they receive payment for services rendered through the animal pound. If they had not received the payment, the facility would have stopped operating.
