The Garden Route SPCA was beautifully represented by the spirited under-13 girls’ water polo team who swam at Victoria Bay in support of the SPCA. As the youngest squad there they certainly stood out and the energetic, cheerful young ladies had no hesitation in braving the chilly sea.
Although the team and their supporters were not the winners on the day, despite their enormous “gees” as requested by the organisers, the team from Stiles were victorious based on votes made by the public on Dotsure’s Facebook page before and during the event.
“We are definitely excited,” said SPCA Inspector who heads up the GR SPCA Education Unit, “I want to thank the Glenwood House girls who ‘plunged’ for us. I know it is very cold – well done girls,” she added. “Please keep supporting the SPCA,” she pleaded, “we need any donations we can get.”
The SPCA also thanks Dotsure for the opportunity to be at the event as well as all of their faithful supporters who dressed up and came to support them. Enormous thanks are extended to Megan Reynders who made Nero, the GR SPCA mascot Pitbull puppy, come to life in a very entertaining manner!
Thank you to everyone who entered.

HELPING ABUSED ANIMALS IS NOT DIFFICULT.
Please consider volunteering for the SPCA - YOU DON'T NEED TO WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE ANIMALS IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO...
Volunteers are always needed by the Garden Route SPCA. Most of the jobs they do are fun, don’t involve working with animals directly and don’t cost you a cent!
Many of us are unable to work directly with abused, sick and injured animals due to allergies or discomfort in facing cruelty to animals but there are many enjoyable activities you can help with to raise money for the SPCA. The GR SPCA operates with no government funding and has to rely on the public and businesses’ generosity.
WORKING IN /DONATING TO THE CHARITY SHOPS: The SPCA Charity Shops are vital to this society. All of the public’s donations to the Shops are spruced up/ washed / fixed by volunteers, sorted and arranged by volunteers and priced and sold by volunteers. The atmosphere in the Shops is fun and the amazing friends that are made whilst doing good leaves everyone happy! You can also sign up for a short shift in the Shops once a fortnight. Please call Bettie on 071-353 7288 or Amy on 082 – 055 0357.
DOG WALKING: Volunteers who walk the dogs and/or cuddle the cats that are up for adoption have a wonderful, social time – often stopping for a cup of tea afterwards. Join us on Saturdays 9-11am and/or Wednesdays 2-4pm (You must be 16 years or older).
FUNDRAISING EVENTS: Our fundraising events are exciting and volunteers really enjoy serving coffee, doing dog-walk registrations and much more. If you could take on just one job for just one event per year that would be greatly appreciated… Selling tickets, making tea etc - it is all fun and very rewarding…
BEQUESTS: Consider leaving a small amount in your will to help care for animals after you pass away. Please contact our GR SPCA Bequest Officer, Joey Sellner, for more info on 082 464 8537 / 044 873 5606 /firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com and she will help you through this very easy process.
DONATE: Donate cat or dog food or give us your old dog leads, collars, kennels, towels, blankets etc. You can drop off clothing and home goodies as donations at the SPCA Charity Shops in the York Street Mall Arcade, 100 York Street or call us and we will fetch your contributions.
COME AND MEET US: Please call Heather 072 877 2911 or Wendy 082 351 4669 for more info.
