“The Outreach Sterilisation Clinics started a few years ago as a Lotto sponsored project specifically to help pet owners living in rural areas and to sterilise and treat vulnerable animals in the poverty stricken rural areas within our community and to educate that community about responsible pet ownership. The animals that come to the Outreach Clinics have had very little or no access to any primary animal health care what-so-ever andthere is a great need in these areas due to overbreeding and interbreeding.The Kloof & Highway SPCA fundraise and appeal for donations specifically for our sterilisation campaigns in rural and previously disadvantaged areas where continuous breeding causes over population of animals, which can lead to animal cruelty and detrimental animal and human health issues.”
This last year has been an exciting year for Outreach, with one day Outreach Clinics and three day Outreach Clinics, both being held throughout the year. So far we have held five one-day Outreach Clinics and three three-day Outreach Clinics and have been able to sterilise a total of 732 animals to date (November 2014). We have also been able to treat and help countless more animals.
We have focused our Outreach efforts this year on the following areas; KwaNgcolosi, Molweni, Embo, Kwanyuswa, Inchanga, Shongweni, Savannah Park, Wyebank, Sarnia, Mariannridge and Mariannhill. These areas have been highlighted as being in critical need of basic animal healthcare
The idea to start incorporating a “mini” one day Outreach Clinic came about as a plan to help manage with the increase in the amount of animals that are in desperate need of sterilisation and treatment from the indigent areas.
Most importantly we are able to create awareness about the Kloof and Highway SPCA’s zero tolerance of animal cruelty.
Sterilisation and effective population control of animals is one of our focus areas in preventing cruelty and suffering. There are thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens suffering from hunger, diseases, parasite infestations, and are often left to die a horrible death.
OVERPOPULATION IS A MAJOR CONCERN
