We rescue abused and neglected domestic, farm and wild animals, promote responsible pet ownership, provide a shelter for strays, and a veterinary service for pets of underprivileged people.
We receive no state funding and are reliant on the community we serve for operating costs. Compassion costs nothing, but pet food, veterinary equipment and supplies, vehicles for transporting rescued animals, etc does.
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.
