And most important let’s not forget the SPCA.
They are always looking for volunteers to assist with the caring of their animals.
But most important is just that little bit of love an animal needs when they are alone and abandoned. You won’t believe how these pets respond to a little affection, and this assists the staff tremendously. Please contact them on 012 664 5644.
