One of the biggest challenges facing rescue organisations in Durban today is that there are more animals available for adoption, than there are suitable homes. In January 2019, Amanzimtoti SPCA had 40 dogs surrendered in just one day. Comments such as “Puppies are cute. If you can’t find a home the SPCA will.” are indicative of the lack of education around sterilisation that exists within our communities. The Amanzimtoti SPCA ensures that every animal that is adopted or treated at their facility is sterilised to prevent unwanted puppies being born. However, sterilisations do not happen for free. Each Sterilisation costs +/- R800 per animal depending on size and complexity.
Therefore, we would like to recruit a team of animal loving cyclists who are willing to dedicate their 2019 Tour Durban to raising funds towards the Amanzimtoti SPCA sterilisation bills. If we recruit 32 cyclists who each raise R1000 this would cover one month’s sterilisation bills.
