Breeders stopped in their Tracks

Dear Animal Warrior 

We were shocked when we heard this story! 

A teacher in the town of Villiersdorp, about 68 miles from our facility was keeping two emaciated Boerboels (a Dutch/Afrikaans word that roughly translates to farmer's dog pronounced "boo-r-bull" ) for breeding purposes. We were shocked that they belonged to a teacher, who should demonstrate high standards of moral behaviour for children to learn from.  It was equally concerning that someone tasked with the responsibility of educating children could be so lacking in compassion.

Upon his arrival, our Chief Inspector Jaco Pieterse found two (2) Boerboels in extremely poor condition and a litter of 7 puppies. The dogs did not have access to food or water and the owner was instructed to give the dogs water. The dogs were so thirsty that they drank non-stop. The owner was also instructed to provide the female Boerboel with food and she gobbled all the food up. The puppies were found to be infested with fleas and also not in good health.

The two dogs and seven puppies were brought back to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA and were examined by our veterinary team. They are currently receiving treatment.

It is really sad that some individuals do not see their animals as pets but rather as just a way to make a quick buck.  It's equally sad that everytime someone like this brings a dog into the world, a shelter dog loses their chance at a new life. 

Thank you for helping the SPCA spay and neuter as many animals a possible to prevent irresponsible breeding like this. We have recently worked with local government on a policy document which has just been released for public comment.  The document may well bring mandatory sterilisation into law but I'll tell you more about that when I write to you again. 

Warm Regards

Belinda
