Sandton SPCA Needs Your Help!

Be First!

IN BRIEF: Sandton SPCA was robbed over the weekend; electronic goods stolen; animals unharmed – funds urgently needed to upgrade their security system.

(Sunday 29 July) – Sandton SPCA staff were left devastated when they arrived for work on Sunday morning, only to find that the venue had been ransacked, electronic goods taken and a trail of destruction had been left behind.

As one of the staff members stated on social media, “We were shocked, utterly shocked and just could not believe it. It was desecration and violation to the highest order. We were just rooted to one spot, taking in the mess made of our familiar surroundings.”

A quick inspection revealed that all the animals in their care were safe and unharmed, much to their relief.
