Amanzimtoti SPCA appeals for soft, tinned animal food

The animal shelter, which relies on donations and the community's support, urgently appeals for food.

THE Amanzimtoti SPCA is reaching out to the community for assistance with its urgent need for donations of tinned or soft food for the animals in its care.

The SPCA’s Michelle Hannan said tin/soft food is scarce, and although people donate dry adult pet food because it is more affordable, it does not always meet the specific dietary needs of the animals, specifically the younger ones.

“In addition to the animals that are up for adoption, there are also our yard cats that need to be fed,” she said.

As a non-profit organisation, the animal shelter relies entirely on donations and community support to feed the animals under its care and to continue its vital work in and around Amanzimtoti. Any contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

Monetary donations can be made at the following banking details: Amanzimtoti SPCA, First National Bank, Galleria branch code: 220 127, Account number: 62807184552, Reference: food/surname.

Food donations can also be dropped off at Dr Hoole Doonside Vet, SPCA’s charity shops at 115 Kingsway Road in Warner Beach and 3 Scott Street in Scottburgh, its premises at 1 Nyati Road in Athlone Park or its food bins at Pick ‘n Pay Hyper, Arbour Crossing and Kingsburgh Centre.

If you would like a thank-you letter and/or an 18A tax receipt, email proof of payment and your details to pro@spcatoti.co.za. For more information, contact the Amanzimtoti SPCA on 031 904 2424.
