Healthy Pets. Healthy People
All funds raised when running in any of these races will directly help the Cape of Good Hope SPCA’s Mobile Clinic Programme. This programme is of vital importance because it delivers both primary veterinary care and animal welfare education to the poorer communities of the Western Cape where pet over-population is a problem with increased statistics of zoonotic diseases amongst the children who may share a household or neighbourhood environment with pets.
We strive to prevent basic animal health problems such as worm infestation and skin diseases which are directly contracted by humans and thus reduce the burden on community health centres. Diseases in animals left untreated can easily spread to humans, particularly children, the elderly and those infected with HIV/AIDS and TB.
Additionally our Mobile Clinic Operators encourage residents to allow their animals to be sterilised as animal over-population poses a serious problem for many communities. Where animals are allowed to breed uncontrollably, the health and welfare of the animals and their owners are compromised. In our last financial year our mobile clinics attended to 17 463 animals costing our society in the region of R1,720,961.00 for the year.
Animal welfare is important and inextricably linked to human welfare - it is only through YOUR support that we can continue to serve, care and heal those animals most in need of our care.
