As we embark on a new year, I am happy to report that our pound funding from the City is now being honoured.

Last year we faced an uphill battle to access the funds needed to provide this crucial service. But we are now working well with eThekwini to ensure that all stray animals in our community are assured of a safe haven.

But the rabies pandemic in KZN remains a cause of grave concern, owing to the diminishing resources of the Dept. of Agriculture, which should be at the forefront of rabies testing and tracing.

Our SPCA alone has collected 20 positive rabies animals over the past few months - predominantly dogs. Please contact the SPCA if you encounter stray animals at large, as there may be significant risks in handling them yourself.

It would be easy to feel overwhelmed by the steady stream of unwanted animals admitted our SPCA, as a result of economic pressure. But our commitment to them remains unwavering. As does our resolve to continue educating, rescuing animals in distress, rehabilitating wherever possible and providing animals with the opportunity to be adopted so they can lead full and healthy lives.

I look forward to your continued support - together we can accomplish much good in 2024.
