Welcome to Amanzimtoti SPCA
Please visit our Fundraising page for upcoming events!
The SPCA inspectors are the ‘Animal Police’ and are on call 24/7. They operate within regulations of the Animals Protection Act No. 71 of 1962 and work within the parameters of the law and the SPCA Act 169 of 1993.All cases of neglect and cruelty towards animals are investigated and they have the power to bring criminal charges against offenders.
The SPCA also checks on animals who have been chained up, have no shelter, food or water, or who have been abandoned. The SPCA will prosecute cases of deliberate and intentional cruelty, but will first and foremost try to educate.
'We promote freedom from hunger, pain & distress in all animals'
If the person is not willing to improve the living conditions and quality of the animal's life, then the SPCA  will uphold the law to protect the animal. The animal may be removed by the SPCA, if the owner is not willing to adhere to warnings.
Inspectors routinely check on transportation of livestock, security firms, hatcheries, private homes, religious slaughters, abbatoirs, rehabilitation centres, wildlife and stock sales, circus and zoos to see that all animals are treated humanely. Read More...

Adopt-a-Pet Program
You may adopt an animal upon a property inspection done by an animal Inspectorate. Should the requirements not meet our approval, we may turn down the application to adopt a pet.
Toti SPCA will only re-home an animal within their area of operation being from the OLD Durban Airport in the north to Hibberdene in the South and inland for approximately 30 kms. Please seek an SPCA in your area if you wish to adopt a pet.

Adoption fees include:
  • the first vaccinations of the animal
  • de-worming
  • compulsory sterilization of all male and female dogs/cats.
After adoption responsibility:

After the adoption process has been completed you will be responsible for any follow up vaccinations due thereafter at your own expense at your local vet. Read More...
Our inspectors respond to emergency calls of animal cruelty and investigate reports of animal abuse or neglect and where necessary rescue animals and file charges with the police for further investigation and prosecution.

We deal with animal related difficulties, for example feral cats at business premises and stray animals on the roads

We sterilize animals to control numbers of strays and unwanted animals.
We have an outreach program in the disadvantaged communities which include regular mobile clinics.

Lost animals are brought to the SPCA and are kept at the kennels for a 7 (seven) day period. This is to allow the legal owner time to claim their pet back. If the dog or cat (or any other animal) is not claimed by the owner it is then put up for adoption. All animals are sterilized before adoption and a pre home check is done.
