To say that we'll miss kennel assistant Richard Dladla – who retired at the end of December after more than three decades at our SPCA – is a huge understatement. Known to many as the 'dog whisperer', Richard has a wonderful way with animals.

He instinctively understands what they are feeling, and can calm and reassure even the most timid or aggressive of them. He also had a gift for 'match making' dogs to the most suitable new owners.

Hamba Kahle dear friend and loyal co-worker.
