Ubuntu is saved and finds a forever home

Ubuntu gets a new home
Ubuntu gets a new home

Thanks to you Ubuntu said goodbye this past #MandelaDa


In Ubuntu's words, "Today was the best day ever!

Remember that lady who said she wanted me to live with her?

She came to see me and she put me in her kennel with wheels. I looked out the window and saw my friends looking out from their kennels barking goodbye. I don’t know why but I felt sad leaving them – I hope someone loves them too.
I didn’t know where she was taking me - maybe back to my sleeping spot where the kind man found me? I didn’t mind – I was with her for now and that was good.


But you know what? She didn’t take me back to the rocks. She adopted me and she has promised I can get older and greyer here with her.

I am so lucky – please don’t forget about my friends at the SPCA. We all need someone to see us. "

 

Because of the support from animal lovers like you, who believe that all living creatures deserve compassion and kindness, Ubuntu was able to be cared for until his new family adopted him.

Please continue to share the gift of hope and love to these animals, so we can help more dogs just like Ubuntu.

Thank you

How do we thank you for a resource this precious

Borehole digging underway

We can't thank you enough, since our last report to you, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA has achieved partial water self-sustainability.

Because you cared enough, to send funds our way, we have been able to:

  • Purchase Jerry Cans to transport donated water
  • Install a rainwater harvesting system in our water heavy areas
  • Rescue many animals that had become stuck in shrinking riverbeds
  • Provide fresh water to all our animals and maintain our hygiene standards
  • Drill our very own borehole

We can't even start to thank you or explain to you what your contributions have meant to us! The rains have started to fall and our rainwater harvesting system is working well, providing us with water for cleaning and reducing the load on the council water system.  Our water tariffs are also so high, as the cost to supply water has increased so drastically.  The water that we now have at our disposal has reduced our average monthly water cost by more than R20 000.00 - that's a great saving!  This means we can direct those funds towards other drought related costs - including the price of horse feed which the drought has sent soaring. 

The drought is not yet over although we have had some wonderful rainfall and we still hope that we will still be able to install a water purification system which will make our borehole water (naturally high in iron) completely safe to drink and connect this to our water system which will futher reduce our use of council water.  We also hope to still be able to install a rainwater harvesting system in all our other departments so that we can enjoy the cost saving that this will present us with (while the rains are falling).

Our most urgent needs have been met and the relief is huge!  We lived in fear of standing helplessly by while animals died in their thousands, just days after day zero and we are so grateful that we turned to you and found you there, ready to help. 

We can't thank you enough, thank you for walking beside us, for supporting us and for your generosity. We could never have achieved all we have without you. 

Yours for the love of animals

Rainwater Tanks Installed thanks to YOU!

Dear Animal loving friends, 

We are very excited to share the news that because of your generosity and support we have been able to complete one of our DROUGHT RELIEF projects. 

Your kindness has meant our brand new 5000 litre rainwater tanks have been secured into our Adoption kennels which care for 400 dogs and cats daily. These tanks ensure that every last drop of rainwater will be stored for the care of our animals when precious drops do fall. Having this technology allows us to conserve water for the days ahead when our water supplies may run low or possibly dry up entirely.

As Cape Town continues to pray for rains to fall, your donations continue to keep our animals hydrated and keep our facilities clean to safeguard their health while in our care.

In the words of our new CEO Moyo Ndukwana, "The CoGH SPCA mandate first and foremost serves to prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of all animals. On encountering any creature our first act of kindness is towards the animals in our care.

The way we treat animals in our care will be a reflection of the kind world that we envision and strive to work for every single day. Because of your kindness and love for animals you have enabled us to keep many animals alive and safe from harm."

What we do matters, and matters even more now than ever- Water is LIFE!

Yours for the love of animals

Belinda
