The largest SPCA in the Free State, serving Manuaung and surrounding areas, Bloemfontein SPCA is a registered non-profit organisation (002-592 NPO ) and a member of the National Council of SPCAs.
We rescue abused and neglected domestic, farm and wild animals, provide a shelter for stray and unwanted animals, offer a pet adoption facility, and educate pet owners on animal care.
We rely on the community we serve for the funds needed to provide our vital service. If you would like to support your SPCA please click the button to make a cash donation online. We also gratefully accept donations of pet food, blankets and other items.support us
We work tirelessly, and cover thousands of kilometres every year, to rescue animals from abuse and neglect, and bring those responsible to justice. Our mandate extends not only to domestic pets, but includes farm animals, reptiles and wild animals. Over the past 20 years, 97% of cases brought to court by the Bloemfontein SPCA have resulted in a successful conviction.
We provide veterinary treatment for abused and injured stray animals, as well as basic health care – including vaccinations, sterilisation and parasite control – for dogs and cats belonging to underprivileged people who cannot afford the services of a private veterinarian. Our free dog dipping service is crucial in providing tick and flea control, without which skin irritation and infection becomes a health issue.
Wherever possible, we endeavour to find new and better homes for stray animals, and those that have been abandoned, surrendered, abused or injured. We urge prospective pet owners to adopt rather than buying from breeders and pet shops, which results in a pet overpopulation, with not enough homes to go round.
Our SPCA runs an education programme for school children, teaching them compassion for animals and the basics of responsible pet ownership. Through outreach projects into these communities, we teach people about the need to vaccinate pets against rabies and other deadly disease and the importance of de-worming and parasite control. We also aim to sterilise as many pets as possible.
