Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognise it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.― Albert Schweitzer

No Animal Should be Allowed to Suffer

The SPCA is the only organisation that offers a 24-hour inspectorate service

The men and women in the SPCA Inspectorate are on the frontline in our fight against animal cruelty. Every day they face challenging, intimidating and often threatening situations where animals are at risk. In order for them to adequately handle these encounters and ensure that those responsible for animal abuse are held accountable, they must be skilled and trained to rescue animals in distress, issue warnings, seize animals in appalling conditions and instigate legal action against abusive and neglectful owners. Our Inspectorate advises individuals and organisations on Municipal Animal By-Laws, geared to offer increased protection for the rights of animals. 

The Inspectorate ensures that every animal has the right to the following freedoms:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviour
  • Freedom from fear and distress

In addition to speaking to hundreds of animal owners on responsible animal care during their daily work, their initiatives includes: combating cruelty (including dog fighting and illegal street selling of pets); Increasing the number of proactive outreaches in communities and Increasing Inspectorate visibility in informal settlements.
