SPCA needs white elephants

THE ALBERTON SPCA is asking residents to support their second-hand shop, where they sell all sorts of goods from clothes to books and from china to dog beds.

The shop is quite a treasure trove and it offers amazing items. “We are always in need of donations and can collect large amounts if necessary. In addition, we hold a weekly market selling good quality clothing at reasonable prices. Please have a good sort out and donate your unwanted items to us for re-sale. The proceeds from the shop go to help us provide for the animals in our care,” said Vanja Ingold, a member of the SPCA.

The SPCA receives no government funding and is entirely reliant on the generosity of the local community. Without regular donations, the SPCA cannot continue the work to care for the animals under their protection. According to Ingold the situation is worsening as more and more people surrender their animals to the SPCA. “Remember to adopt, don’t shop,” she said.

If you can donate in any way, please contact Alberton SPCA on 011 907 1568 or drop goods off at our offices in Lincoln Road, General Alberts Park.

Alternatively, make use of our SMS lines to donate easily – SMS ‘Puppy’ to 39969; SMS costs R15. Or SMS ‘Kitten’ to 38844; SMS costs R10.
