How you can help Alberton SPCA

How you can help Alberton SPCA – Alberton SPCA receives no government funding and so we rely on the generosity of our supporters to enable us to continue our mission. There are numerous ways you can help, as listed below. Please remember that all donations are tax deductible and we can send you a Section 18 A Tax Certificate to show how much you have donated during the tax year.

 

  1. Kennel sponsorship.  This costs R110 per month for either a kennel or the cattery.  At the end of each month we send an email out with photos of those dogs and/or cats you have helped.
  2. We always need dried dog food, any make is fine as we mix it all up to feed our dogs.  We rarely give them tinned food as this can cause stomach problems as a lot of these dogs haven’t been    exposed to wet food before.
  3. Blankets, collars and leads are always in demand as when we do outreach we give to those in need.
  4. Volunteers are welcome but must be over 16 of age.  We do not allow them to go into the dog kennels but there are various tasks to do such as washing bowls, powdering the cats, tidying up, helping with the flea market, sorting donations out.
  5. Support and advertise our fundraisers.  On Saturday 27thMay we are holding a street collection.  We need volunteers to help us to raise funds?   We hold a few raffles though the year so help with selling tickets is appreciated as well as providing prizes such as weekends away, alcohol, chocolates etc etc.
  6. Donations of items like A4 paper (we use a huge amount), printer cartridges, black pens, black bags, hosepipes, toilet paper, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, second-hand books and items to sell in our second hand shop such as clothing, toys, cutlery and any unwanted items.
  7. Raise funds for our building project (new isolation kennels).
  8. Sponsor a bakkie for a month paying for our petrol costs (we have an account at a garage in Randhart).
  9. Buy airtime for our emergency line and our staff who go out on call.
  10. Sponsor new computers for the office as ours are archaic.

These are the most obvious ways you can help – but if you can think of other ways to help or raise much-needed funds we are very keen to hear from you. Thanks again for your support to date and we’d love to keep that support in the future.
