Having exhausted all efforts to secure the municipal funding due to our organisation for the provision of the City animal pound service, we turned to you – our friends and supporters – for help.

Thank you sincerely for adding your voice to ours, and flooding the municipal offices and City Manager’s mailbox with requests for a speedy resolution.

Your efforts made all the difference. I am delighted to share with you that the contract has been drawn up and signed, and that the outstanding payment is imminent.

It just proves the wisdom of this popular quote by Margaret Mead:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

On behalf of every stray dog or cat that finds sanctuary at our SPCA – thank you!
