Team SPCA raises thousands for animals THIS year, for the first time, the Cape of Good Hope (CoGH) SPCA had a team of runners participating in the 15th annual Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon for Team SPCA. To date the group of 13 animal lovers (11 women and 2 men), most of whom are from the Western Cape, have collectively raised over R40 000 for the CoGH SPCA. With every kilometre they run, they’ll be opening doors to loving homes, shelters, a new life (or a chance for a better one), for every horse, rabbit, rooster, cow, pig, tortoise, dog, cat – in fact any animal that is cared for and looked after by the CoGH SPCA. The SPCA was thrilled to be approached by so many people, passionate about animals and their welfare, and who wanted to make their race count for more by supporting the vital lifesaving work of the CoGH SPCA. Ultra marathon runner Jo Forlee Samsonowicz has thus far raised R12 110 and CoGH SPCA’s Communications Manager Sarah Scarth together with friends Lisa van Leeuwen and Helen Dagut, who are running the half marathon (21km), have collectively raised just over R11 000. “While our legs will only be six amongst the 32 000, we aim to put them to good use by multiplying the number of rands that we can donate to CoGH
SPCA – a cause close to each of our hearts and in need of ongoing support,” says Sarah. Another runner, Cindy Bessinger, says it will be the first time she’s doing the Two Oceans Marathon. “What better motivation than to do it for the SPCA. There are so many animals in need of our help and this is my way of giving back”.

FUNDRAISERS: Nine of the 13 Team SPCA members have collectively raised over R40 000 for the CoGH SPCA.
YOUR pet could be just what the judges are looking for in the SPCA Royal Canin Mutt and Meow of the Year online pet photo competition, which runs from 10 April to 21 May and aims to help hundreds of homeless pets by finding the most-loved and adored cat and dog, online. An adaptation of the Cape of Good Hope (CoGH) SPCA’s popular Mutt of the Year competition, which was held annually for 15 years, the new online competition makes it possible for many more dogs to stand a chance of winning the coveted Mutt of the Year title and for the
first time gives cat-lovers an opportunity to brag about their feline friends in the new Meow of the Year category. “Unlike traditional pet competitions which reward dogs and cats with fancy pedigrees and pure-bred characteristics, the SPCA Royal Canin Mutt & Meow of the Year will celebrate the unconditional love and special companionship between pet owners and their canine and feline friends, regardless of their breed,” said CoGH SPCA Communication and Resource Development Manager Sarah Scarth.
