About Durban & Coast SPCA
The Durban & Coast Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (South Africa) is a registered non-profit organisation (002-312 NPO) and public benefit organisation (PBO 930001302), an incorporated association not for gain and a member of the National Council of SPCAs.
We've been 'speaking for animals' for over 100 years. From humble beginnings in 1897, we have grown to a large and successful organisation operating from spotless, modern premises in Springfield Park. We receive no state funding and are reliant on the community we serve for operating costs.
The Durban & Coast SPCA's mission is to improve the welfare of, and to prevent cruelty to, all animals in the Greater Durban Area.
We achieve this by:
- Responding to reports of cruelty, rescuing animals in distress and prosecuting those guilty of cruelty;
- Sheltering strays and unwanted dogs and cats until they are claimed by their owners or new owners can be found for them;
- Treating sick and injured rescued animals;
- Providing subsidised veterinary services for pets of underprivileged and unemployed people, and pensioners;
- Educating children and others with regard to the basic rights of animals, responsible pet ownership;
- Offering affordable boarding kennels for dogs;
- Promoting respect and concern for all living creatures.
Far more than just an animal shelter and adoption facility, the SPCA plays a humanising role in society, educating people – especially children – about the rights of all living creatures, and working for better legal protection for animals (particularly farm animals) and more severe penalties for perpetrators of cruelty.
