OUR HISTORY

The Johannesburg Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (JSPCA) was established in 1902 and is one of the largest animal welfare organisations in the country.

SOME INTERESTING FACTS

- We operate as Johannesburg’s official City Pound, and accept all stray, abandoned, abused and confiscated animals.
- We have a very active education and outreach programme.
- We assist people who would like to adopt a pet from the JSPCA and have a special meet-and-greet area for this purpose.
- We do pre-adoption home checks to make sure that all adopted animals are going to safe and loving homes.
- SPCAs are obligated by law to admit any animal brought in. No animal may be turned away.
