Brits/ Rustenburg – When entering online for the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge #3, adventure seekers can also support the SPCA Rustenburg.

The challenge will take place at the bustling Van Gaalens Kaasmakerij, Brits, on Saturday 6 October 2018.

Welcomed as an official charity of the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge, the SPCA Rustenburg was founded in 1936 by a concerned community member who wanted to make a difference in the welfare of all animals.  

“We inspect facilities that keep animals: pet shops, sale yards, security companies, abattoirs etc. to ensure that the animals receive the proper care,” says Monique Swart, SPCA Rustenburg deputy chairperson. “We take action where standards are not met. We also run the municipal pound for stray, domestic and farmed animals.

It is our mission to reunite lost animals with their owners. Our SPCA inspectors work in underprivileged areas, educating owners about animal care, and enforcing the Animals Protection act 71 of 1962. One of our biggest challenges is to motivate dog and cat owners to sterilise their pets.”
