THE SPCA Lower South Coast invites animal lovers to adopt a cat or a dog on Mother’s Day on the now reduced prices.

The SPCA Lower South Coast is home to 100 dogs at any given time, but only 20 to 25 dogs are adopted monthly.

Operations manager Lauren Ferreira said the SPCA’s adoption process has the same mission as adopting a child.

“We want to give every animal the opportunity they deserve, a home full of love, a warm bed, a full tummy and a second chance at a wonderful life,” said Ferreira.

Ferreria said animals land on the SPCA doorstep for many reasons.

“Some animals are taken away from their homes because of neglect or abuse. In other cases, stray animals are picked up from streets, and others are simply donated when owners relocate or can no longer afford to look after them.”

She said owners are given seven days to collect their animals, after which they officially become the SPCA’s animal, liable to the SPCA adoption process.

Marketing and fund developer, Madri Koen said the public can contribute to the organisation by donating to SPCA charity stores in Port Shepstone, Shelly Beach or Uvongo. “There are several other projects that can also help make a difference, such as the SPCA’s High 5 Membership Rewards Programme and fun-raisers,” said Koen.
