Sandton SPCA Clinic was Sponsored by Arco 360 Pet insurance for a Sterilisation.

Sandton SPCA Clinic was Sponsored by Arco 360 Pet Insurance.

As part of the 67 Minutes – Mandela Day Campaign, Sandton SPCA Clinic spent yesterday morning in Alexandra kicking off a sterilisation drive.

We arrived bright and early to be greeted by a crowd of Alex residents and their much loved dogs (and one cat). Quite a few of these owners were only interested in having their pets vaccinated and not sterilised by the Sandton SPCA Clinic. In these cases, our inspectors engaged with the owners and educated them as to the many benefits of sterilisation.

We are pleased to say that many changed their minds and registered their pets for sterilisation !

Many puppies were dewormed on site. In total, 29 dogs and 1 cat were transported back to the Sandton SPCA for their sterilisation procedures. In addition, Benji, a gorgeous wire hair terrier puppy was taken back for treatment for tick bite fever. We hope he feels better very soon.

We will return to Alex on Thursday morning to reunite the dogs and cat with their owners.

THANK YOU to ARCO 360 who made this outreach possible by donating R15,000 towards the 30 sterilisations. We are extremely grateful for your generosity!
