The Empangeni SPCA was started in Zululand in 1972. SPCA stands for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This means any animal, whether it is a dog, cat, bird, reptile, horse, cow, sheep or goat. We try to assist people who need to treat their pets, but don’t have enough money to see a private vet. This is done through the Almony system.
Dogs that come from indigent areas, who need dipping, de-worming, mange treatment and rabies vaccinations are attended to at our kennels. Not all SPCA’s have their own vet in attendance. Please check if the society in your area is able to assist you and in what way.
