As part of Nel­son Man­dela Day, the SPCA’S and Ikhala’s joint ob­jec­tive in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the State Vet pre­pared a ster­il­i­sa­tion cam­paign which took place on 18 July.

Our aim for this first cam­paign was to ster­ilise a min­i­mum of 50 dogs (and/or cats) over the course of the day.

The cam­paign was based at the Ikhala clinic and if we can, we will be re­peat­ing the process on a monthly ba­sis in an ef­fort to curb the num­bers of stray dogs and cats in the re­gion.

We in fact man­aged to ster­ilise 64 an­i­mals!

The cam­paign re­lied on count­less vol­un­teers, col­lab­o­ra­tions and fund­ing from both the state and pri­vate sec­tor. We can­not thank all our con­trib­u­tors enough for ev­ery­thing they did and gave on the day.

The SPCA, Ikhala Vet clinic, the State Vet, and CCS are so grate­ful for all the help and do­na­tions given.

We would love to make this a long term, sus­tain­able suc­cess! We owe a huge debt of thanks to ev­ery­one that contributed.

Un­for­tu­nately, in­di­vid­u­als were too nu­mer­ous to name in­di­vid­u­ally but we are so very ap­pre­cia­tive of all the help that was given and all the peo­ple that came in and gave their time for the com­mu­nity.

Noth­ing speaks of the Gra­ham­stown spirit more than how many were will­ing to help in Madiba’s name!
