By becoming a member of the Franschhoek SPCA, you not only help in raising funds for the SPCA by paying a yearly or lifetime fee but you are also given the opportunity to participate & vote at our annual general meeting. Members are also offered the chance to participate in helping the committee shape the future of the organisation and the work we do in preventing cruelty to animals and educating our communities.
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Volunteering at the SPCA is not just about walking dogs. We look for people with any skills that will help us to help the animals. Examples of services needed: animal behaviourist, builder, IT, painters or general handy man, etc. Volunteering doesn't have to be a full-time job - if you have a skill or idea that you think you can offer our organisation, please let us know!
Companies wanting to complete their social responsibility community services are also welcome.
