Support our runners

On Sunday 12 July, our team of SPCA runners will take to the streets of Durban to raise funds for animals at our SPCA. Please support them along the route – and consider sponsoring them for R10, R20 or R50 per kilometre. Get your friends to join in too, by challenging them to equal or better your donation!

Your support provides food, veterinary treatment, comfort and care for animals that have been neglected, hurt, injured or abandoned. Thank you!

Who will you support?

Dougal SPCA runner

Daniel Wiebesiek aka Dougal

It's been a ruff year for everyone but I'll
be wagging my tail in excitement if you sponsor me for the FNB Run this year! I'm looking forward to a pawesome run on the day and will be chasing the runners in front of me to the finish line - hopefully I don't spot any cats that stray me off the route. I love helping my fellow canines at the SPCA so I hope you will too.


Robin Powell

I have decided to run FNB 10k this year for the SPCA because I am a big animal lover and hate seeing or reading about animal abuse. I have a lot of respect and unwavering support for the SPCA; they just don't get enough support and recognition for all their hard work. They work tirelessly, under harsh conditions to help defenseless and abandoned animals. I can't do what the SPCA does. But by supporting them, I can help animals to have a better life.


Angela Lardant

My heart is full of paw prints. I'm an avid animal lover, especially dogs (of any breed). At the moment I have four rescue dogs who are my everything. The world would be a much nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog. I believe we can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of animals. It would be pawesome if you would support me to raise funds for our furry friends.


Tracy Wittstock

About 4 years ago, I decided to join a club and start walking for health & exercise. Over time I progressed to walking with a bit of running, and then went on from there. I am not a born runner, however I have learnt to really enjoy it. I have 4 dogs at home, who basically run our house and get treated like humans. I am thrilled to be running for the SPCA this year in support of our furry friends – please sponsor me!



Sheila McCallum

Even though I'm not the best or fastest runner out, I volunteered to complete this run because I hope that in doing so, I can help the SPCA save more animals. Cruelty to animals is my worst! I don't know how SPCA Inspectors are able to deal with the horror and the heartbreak day after day; they are real heroes. Please support me - together we can make a difference. Thank you.


OTHER ways to help

If you love animals, please support our efforts to protect them from cruelty and neglect. There are lots of different ways to help.

Sponsor a Yard Cat

Provide care and shelter for one of the cats that live permanently at our SPCA because they cannot be re-homed – with your monthly sponsorship gift of just R150.


Volunteering is an enriching experience for anyone who has some free time on a regular basis and wants to make a difference. You need to be over 16 years of age, reliable and have your own transport.

Get a MySchool Card

It costs you nothing, and you'll help animals every time you swipe the card at Woolworths and other participating stores. Be sure to nominate Durban & Coast SPCA as the beneficiary. Download the app from the Apple store or Google play, or click the button to sign up online.

Donate in lieu of a gift

Helping to make a better world for animals is the perfect way to honour a friend or loved one who prefers not to receive gifts for a birthday, anniversary or other celebration.

Support Coffee Cats

Enjoy a cuppa or a light meal in the tranquil setting of our cafe and tea garden. Meet our famous yard cats, browse plants for sale, visit our charity shop or Adoption Centre.

Include us in your Will

If kindness towards animals has been one of the guiding principles of your life, wouldn’t you enjoy knowing that your voice against cruelty, neglect, greed and ignorance will continue to be heard beyond your lifetime?

Donate unwanted items

Your unwanted furniture, clothing, household appliances, books, jewellery, etc can be sold in our charity shop to raise funds towards the care of our furry orphans. We also appreciate gifts of pet food, blankets, etc.

Collect small change for us

If you own or manage a retail outlet or are a member of a club, why not keep one of our collection tins on your counter? Small change mounts up quickly and makes a big difference to our Society!

Shop til you drop

We have a charity shop filled with amazing bargains, as well as a section of brand new pet products – collars & leads, tick & flea remedies, grooming products, toys & pet food.

Buy plants

Fill your garden with beautiful healthy seedlings, shrubs and trees supplied by Ladybird Landscapes. Large selection available at our nursery, adjacent to Coffee Cats.

Sponsor a kennel

When you sponsor a kennel at the SPCA at a cost of R150 monthly, your kindness doesn't only touch one dog. Hundreds of sad, hurting and frightened dogs will find sanctuary in 'your' kennel, while they wait to be adopted.

Report cruelty

Animals can't speak for themselves - they need compassionate people to speak for them. If you know of an animal that is being ill treated or neglected, call us on 031 579 6501 or our emergency after hours number, 083 212 6103.
