Functions & Events

Finding ways of raising funds is a constant ongoing endeavour. Our Events Sub-Committee meets regularly brainstorming ideas for new and innovative functions that will attract people, be memorable and fun, while at the same time swelling our coffers so that we can keep increasing the scope of our work with needy animals.

Hills 1000 Paws Walk will be held on the 15th July 2018 at Hilton school starting at 08h30.

 

 

Tree of Love – One week in December:

This has become a very popular annual event and involves 2 trees being taken to various shop outlets on various days where handmade cards can be bought for R5 and put on our trees. People can commemorate pets or people past or present. Tree of Love in December 2014, brought it a whopping R16144.50 and we are very thankful and appreciative to our community for supporting this heart-warming initiative.

We have some new and exciting events and projects coming up this year and we look forward to, and thank you, for your continued support.

 

Other ways of raising funds include:

  • Raffles where we raise several thousand rands a time. The prizes for Raffles are always amazing donations of all manner of items and for these we are most grateful. We also give sincere thanks to those people and businesses who sell tickets on our behalf.
  • Our Fireside jars which people have in their homes for all those nuisance coins weighing down their pockets and purses. Please ask at any of our outlets for your own Fireside jar to collect coins for the uMngeni SPCA. It’s amazing how they mount up and every little bit helps animals.
  • Collection tins in shops and businesses throughout our area. Please pop your small change into one of our tins if you have a chance.
  • My School/My Village/My Planet cards are a really easy way to give to your favourite charity at absolutely no cost to yourself. You can download the form here, complete it and hand it in at your local Woolworths or post it off. Once you receive your card just remember to swipe it at the till every time you shop at participating stores and the store will donate a percentage of your spend to the SPCA. How cool is that?

Anne Smith - SPCA Plant Lady

Anne SmithAnne has been the driving force behind establishing our Gardeners’ Corner, firstly at Campbell Road and later at our Fundraising Centre in Main Street Howick.   She has been with us through thick and thin, planning, executing and running our highly successful plant nursery.   Anne not only sources plants from nurseries at very special prices, she also goes to Kloof SPCA to fetch loads of plants donated from their nursery and she also pots out slips, cuttings, divisions of huge matted plants and other material that is donated by gardeners.  Whatever else she does with her magic wand to produce the huge stock of fine plants, seedlings, shrubs and trees to sell at competitive prices I wouldn’t know but the measure of her success is in the band of loyal supporters who always look for their garden requirements at the SPCA Centre before they even think of going anywhere else.

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
