    General information on the NSPCA

    MissionTo prevent cruelty and promote the welfare of all animals.
     
    VisionTo end animal cruelty in South Africa and to engender compassion for all animals.
     
    Who are we?
    The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) was founded in 1955 as the Federation of SPCAs to provide a forum to bring uniformity to welfare legislation and standards. The 90+ member SPCAs in South Africa are governed by the SPCA Act 169 of 1993 which is administered by the NSPCA, constituting us as a statutory body. Inspectors are authorised in terms of the Animals Protection Act 71 of 1962 and the Performing Animals Protection Act No. 24 of 1935 with the SPCA movement collectively undertaking over 90% of all animal welfare investigations and prosecutions in South Africa.
    Apart from dealing with legislation and specialist matters, the NSPCA also operates in areas where there is no existing SPCA, or where support is required, or has been specifically requested, or in response to disasters (i.e. emergencies, floods, fires).

    Monitoring Welfare In its statement of policy the NSPCA is clear regarding its opposition to certain practices which contravene our primary and motivating concern which is the prevention of cruelty to all living creatures. Utilisation of animals gives humans neither the right nor the licence to exploit or abuse any animal in the process.

      I found a young cape cobra in my kitchen this morning. Called Mario from the SPCA who collected the critter and took him to a safe new home outside of Kimberley.

      Thanks
      Mario.
