Johannesburg SPCA Water Pipes

Johannesburg SPCA Water Pipes

Personal message

We are asking all our supporters and surrounding businesses for help.

The JSPCA has been on the current property for almost 20 years. Last month we got our municipal water account, and we almost had heart failure. At first, we thought they had made an enormous mistake, and after numerous phone calls and visits to the municipality, they said we are responsible for the full account as it is on our property.

We immediately suspected we must have a severe water leak somewhere as we never used all that water. We managed to get a Leak Detection company out yesterday, and after spending the whole day on the property - it was discovered that we have a burst pipe. 

A pipe that pushes through thousands of litters of water. Our plumber and his team opened the manhole cover, and the water rushed through.
We immediately contacted our insurance only to find out we are not covered for something as huge as this.

The municipality can also not assist us even though we are an NPO - we have to pay the account, or they will suspend our water account. Even though the water pipes were put in by them years ago, they are not taking any responsibility for it as the lines are on our property. 

The problem is we never knew there was a leak. How could we? The pipes are deep underground!
We do not have the funds lying around. All our donations and support go to the welfare of all the animals in our care. 

We rely on people’s generosity to help us keep the place running - and what is even worse, we still have to get this month’s account, which will likely be the same!

We are doing appeals for help on all our platforms and media as we cannot operate without water. We would appreciate it if you could help in any way possible, even if it is an R10 donation.
