Get to know Boksburg SPCA’s newly qualified field officer

Sithole's goal is to grow as much as possible and become a senior inspector.

Tshepo Sithole, an inspector at the Boksburg SPCA, loved animals since he was a boy.

Because of this passion, the 29-year-old Cloverdene resident joined the society just over a year ago and recently qualified as a field officer.

Sithole’s qualification as a field officer will enable him to educate communities in rural areas lacking animal welfare knowledge.

He will also monitor the chickens, goats and sheep for sale next to the road.

Furthermore, Sithole will conduct home visits for community members wanting to adopt an animal.

Sithole is overjoyed about being a qualified field officer, especially for the Boksburg SPCA.

“The team is amazing – from the committee members, staff and volunteers are very supportive.

“I am looking forward to every challenge that I might encounter because nothing is difficult for the brave. I consider challenges as character-building moments,” he said.
Animal lover

Sithole, who grew up in Wattville, remembers assisting community members with their animals when he was younger.

“I would also phone the SPCA whenever there is a stray animal around my community and volunteer at outreaches,” he said.
His goal is to grow as much as possible and become a senior inspector.

Boksburg SPCA manager Vicky Finnemore congratulated Sithole on his achievement.

“He has proved to be dedicated, loyal, a workhorse and we are honoured to have him on our team. We know he will make a difference,” she said.
