Welcome to the NSPCA . We care about ALL animals.
Some situations that may appear as though the SPCA must get involved, aren’t actually within our mandate. Our mandate is to prevent cruelty, and in a country that spans over a million square kilometres, our Inspectors must place their focus on cases where the Animals Protection Act is being contravened. We ask that you please follow these guidelines below:
The mandate of the SPCA is to prevent cruelty to animals. However, the local Municipality and police in each town are responsible for complaints regarding animals causing a nuisance or disturbance of peace. We suggest that you contact your local Municipality or police station in order to lodge a formal complaint regarding barking dogs.
The local Municipality in each town is responsible for complaints regarding stray animals, which includes animals in the street, animals causing a nuisance or animals attacking people & other animals. Please contact your local Municipality or police station for assistance in this matter.
The local Municipality in each town is responsible for the collection of dead animals. Please contact your local Municipality for assistance in this matter.
The NSPCA opposes the sale/trading of animals, however, it is not illegal to trade with domestic animals and we, therefore, have no jurisdiction to intervene unless there are welfare concerns. In this case, we need the breeder’s address to conduct an inspection.
