Dudu Abraham, Operations Manager and qualified Senior Inspector

DuDu

DuDu

Dudu has more than 20 years experience in SPCAs and is passionate about the wellbeing of all animals, particularly those in the disadvantaged areas.

Outreach work, particularly sterilisations, has increased enormously since Dudu became Operations Manager.   As a consequence the level of awareness and the overall condition of animals in the poorer communities shows a marked improvement.

Dudu is utterly dedicated to the cause of animal welfare and is a force to be reckoned with if the situation demands it.

Tanya : SPCA Vet.

It was at Dr Hughes’ suggestion and with her guidance that we originally set up our veterinary clinic around ten years ago.   She used to work for us for a couple of hours in the afternoons.   Dr Hughes later moved to a mainly equine practice in the KZN Midlands.  She rejoined us on a full time basis at the beginning of 2011.   Since then our outreach work has increased dramatically with Dr Hughes’ surgical skills and our Operations Manager’s passion for the “underdog”.

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

We support ONLY the circuses that DO NOT use animals of any kind to entertain the crowds. The use of wild animals in Circus acts is inhumane
