Who are We?

Our Society is a Branch of a national network of SPCAs in South Africa. We adhere to strict policies and protocols monitored by our National Council, the NSPCA, which is our umbrella body, based in Johannesburg. We are also part of a world wide network of SPCAs originally founded in Britain in the 19th Century.

The uMngeni (formerly Howick) SPCA has been tackling the problems of neglect, abuse and cruelty to animals in the greater Howick District since its formation in 1968.

Starting from scratch, this Society has grown slowly but surely over the years and, with the goodwill and support of animal lovers in the area, will continue to reach out to the ever increasing number of animals needing help far into the foreseeable future.
