Smiles for you

Thanks to support from generous animal lovers like you, our SPCA has some heartwarming rescue stories to share.

Earlier this year, Inspector Ramsamy responded to a call from a member of the public who had noticed a stray dog roaming around the construction site where he was working. When the dog spotted our Inspector, he ran away and sat on a piece of foam he had clearly been using as a bed. It was almost as if he was saying, “This is my home – come and join me!”

After showing Inspector Ramsamy his bed, Dusty (as we named him) happily jumped into the van to be brought back to our SPCA. He was diagnosed with mange and put on weekly treatment of Bravecto, antibiotics and Ivomec injections. Ten weeks later, Dusty’s coat is no longer dusty, and he’s ready to go to a proper home where he’ll never have to fend for himself again.

Remember Ollie, the dog that arrived at our SPCA earlier this year in an absolutely appalling condition? Thanks to the treatment he received from our dedicated veterinary team, Ollie recovered completely and has been adopted. His new mom, Fathima Mustapha, spoils him with tasty chews and, best of all, he has a garden to run around in!

Thank you for the part you play in these success stories. We wouldn’t be able to rescue and rehabilitate these animals without your support!
