About The NSPCA
For 60 years, the NSPCA has been protecting our country’s animals.
We prevent cruelty, promote kindness and alleviate the suffering of animals.
Our objective is to serve and protect ALL animals, to uplift their welfare and to ensure that the protection they have under South African law is upheld and respected.

Adopting from an SPCA
SPCAs do not give away animals nor do they sell animals.
Animals are ADOPTED.
This may seem like we are playing word games but there is a big difference. Let us explain.
Career as an Inspector
Do you fancy a career as an Inspector?
Inspectors receive ongoing training throughout their careers and the NSPCA ensures that courses for Inspectors and Senior Inspectors are regularly updated, reviewed and revised in order to ensure that high standards are maintained.
SPCA structure in South Africa
Individual SPCAs are not branches of the NSPCA but are autonomous members who must be registered with the NSPCA which administers the SPCA Act 169 of 1993.
