"To speak for those who can't speak for themselves is an honour."

We're delighted to welcome this compassionate young man – who started at the Lower South Coast SPCA and recently qualified as an Inspector – to our team.

Inspector Ngcobo joined the SPCA movement three years ago, after being exposed to high levels of animal cruelty in the farming environment.

"I wanted to make a change," he explains. "I love animals and have always wanted to work with them."

Already, Inspector Ngcobo has several rescues to his credit – among them a Beagle who got lost in the bush and caught in a snare. Ngcobo searched through some 4km of bush before locating and rescuing the dog.

He also recalls another dog, Zeus, which was removed from a property as he was dying of starvation at the end of a chain.

"We found out that Zeus was actually a stolen dog," says Ngcobo. "He was rehabilitated and returned to his rightful owners."

Knowing you are able to make a difference to suffering animals is the reward that friends like you share with Inspector Ngcobo, through your support of our SPCA. Thank you for standing with our Inspectors as they go about their vital work.
