SPCA Inspectors are empowered by law, under the Animals Protection Act No. 71 of 1962 to act on behalf of animals. The SPCA Inspectors have the right to issue warnings and to seize animals in need. The SPCA believes in education rather than prosecution, but we will never hesitate to take legal actions if perpetrators do not comply. We are always ready to act on behalf of the animals.
Perpetrators found guilty in a court of law for animal cruelty could face up to 3 years imprisonment and / or a fine of R60 000 and a criminal record.
The SPCA prevents cruelty to ALL animals, including domestic (dogs and cats), farm and wild animals. We visit sale yards, abattoirs, petting farms, pet shops, hawking sites, informal sale of animals, etc to make sure that everything is up to welfare standards and that the animal protection legislation is adhered to.
We also respond to the day to day cruelty complaints received from members of the public. The public is the SPCAs watching eye, without the public the SPCA would not be able to prevent cruelty to animals.
SPCA inspectors do not release complainants information and every measure will be taken to ensure confidentiality.
To report animal cruelty to the Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA, please call 016 422 1505 or complete the online cruelty complaint sheet.
Details of complainants are kept confidential at all times!
