Here at the JSPCA, we’re all about giving you the truth. There are many stories out there to help care for your pets, but these are often false and misleading. Therefore, we thought we’d give you some myths that many still think are true.
On Sunday, the 5th of April, our duty inspector got a call from a resident in Noordgesig about a stray dog that was wondering the street. Upon arrival, our inspector stopped his vehicle and opened the door to get his leash out. Without a word, the dog just jumped into his vehicle and sat there waiting for him to leave. Strange you would say as to how many stray animals just jump into an SPCA vehicle?
In some cases, chained dogs may be tethered for days, months, or even years. Dog chaining poses serious threats to a dog’s physical and psychological well-being. Due to the inhumane nature of continuous dog chaining, many cities and counties are passing local laws to ban the practice. However, we still see dogs being chained up around South Africa.
