They are unloved, neglected, starving, sick, injured and sometimes dying - they are the estimated 4000 stray and unwanted animals that will be admitted to our facility in their thousands this festive season. This is not only shameful - it's a crisis! A crisis in compassion for the human race and a financial crisis for the SPCA, these animals will all need to be transported to our facility, they'll need food, shelter, veterinary attention and lots of love to give them a Chance for Christmas.

Challenge

Our animal intake is set to double during the coming holiday season. we expect admission of around 4000 animals as many animals are be abandoned when pet owners leave for other parts of the country, others are handed in because they are no longer wanted and many will be found sick, suffering, diseased or injured in the streets as strays.

Solution

These animals will need food, shelter and veterinary intervention if they have any hope of a better life. Many will be malnourished, victims of motor vehicle accidents, some will be pregnant, suffering from dreaded disease and almost all will be parasite ridden. All animals deserve a chance, regardless of the odds against them. Contributions made will go directly towards the costs of rehabilitating and providing safe sanctuary for stray and unwanted animals this festive season.

Long-Term Impact

When an animal is admitted to the SPCA, they will never experience another day's suffering or hardship. Taking vulnerable and injured or diseased animals off the streets means no more indiscriminate breeding of unwanted puppies and kittens, no more cruelty towards stray animals and improved living conditions within communities with greatly reduced chances of animal to human disease transmission.
