We love animals, but we know that they can sometimes be a nuisance or a danger. For example, dogs roaming the streets may bite people. They may chase cars, cyclists or joggers, causing accidents or injuries. Stray dogs and cats may rip open rubbish bags. Feral cats yowling and dogs that bark incessantly can drive the neighbours to distraction!
When animals are a nuisance, many people’s first reaction is to pick up the phone and call the SPCA. However, we have no mandate to enforce Municipal by-laws; cases of this nature should be reported (preferably in writing) to your local Municipality or Metro Police.
However, if a dog chases a car and gets run over and injured, please do call us, because animal welfare is our concern. Call 031 579 6501 or email email@example.com
