I am Leone Geldenhuys. It is my birthday on 8 January and I am turning 30 years old! I am a teacher who loves animals and children. I want to raise funds for the Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA because all animals deserve love, compassion and a friend or two. I know the SPCA struggles to raise funds and they do such wonderful work for our furry friends. I want to raise funds to sterilize animals and for kennel upgrades. Please help me raise R1500 for our furry friends at the Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA. Help me make my 30th very special by paying it forward.
SPCA Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark
It is exactly as our name indicates. Our mission is the prevention of cruelty to animals, by way of education, law enforcement, and pro-active and reactive activities. This means that we are concerned with the welfare of all animals, from the tiniest mouse right up to the largest elephant.
In other words, we freely stick our noses in where there are domestic animals, farm animals, working animals, traction animals, animals reared for food, wild animals, animals used for entertainment and exhibition, animals used in sport, hunting animals, animals placed in danger, animals used for research and so on.
The SPCA is responsible for supporting the SA Police Service in enforcing legislation including but not limited to the Animal Protection Act and the Performing Animals Protection Act.
We do not get money from the government and rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for donations to confront cruelty, promote the welfare of all animals and make us sustainable.
Whether your contribution pays for a packet of cat food, help build a kennel or fights animal cruelty, you can be sure that it will help restore a rescued animal's trust in humans – so thank you!
All donations to the Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA are tax-deductible. If you are a resident in South Africa and would like a tax-deductible receipt issued for your kind donation, please send your request to [email protected] with proof of the donation attached to your e-mail.
Thank you for caring about animals!
