adopt cat

Pick me!

adopt catIf you're looking for a new pet, please visit the SPCA rather than a pet shop or breeder. Not only will you save a life – when you adopt a pet from the SPCA you know you are getting a healthy animal.

Every dog and cat offered for adoption has been thoroughly examined at our clinic, de-wormed and innoculated. We also have a strict sterilisation policy that ensures pets are only re-homed after being spayed or neutered.

Lots to choose from
Right now, we have a wide selection of lovable dogs and beautiful cats in need of good homes.

adopt dogClick the links alongside to view pets currently available – or visit our kennels and cattery to find one that is just right for you! Please allow at least an hour for your visit to give you plenty of time to choose. If you already have other pets at home, consider how they would get on – our kennel staff can give invaluable advice on dogs' temperaments ... for example, whether they are good with cats, other dogs and children.

All pets have to be sterilised before being allowed home with you. If you are adopting a very young puppy or kitten, you will need to commit to bringing the animal back to be sterilised when it is older.

Pre-home inspection
After you have chosen your new best friend, an inspection of your property will be done to ensure that it is suitable for the animal concerned. Please complete the form at our SPCA and pay the inspection fee of R100, which is deducted from the adoption fee below. Or you may complete this step online by filling out the pre-home form for a dog or the pre-home form for a cat here. Please email proof of payment to info@spcadbn.org.za.

Our adoption fees include health check, sterilization, first set of innoculations, micro chip, collar and ID disk.

Dogs: R585
Puppies: R585 (plus R300 refundable deposit)
Cats: R405
Kittens: R405 (plus R300 refundable deposit)


Adoption hours are:

8am-4pm weekdays
8am-12.30 pm on Saturdays

Adoption process

choosing a pet

Choosing a pet – consider the size of your property, your children’s ages and other pets at home.

meeting new pet

When you’ve found 'the one', spend time getting to know him. Ask our kennel staff for their assessment too.

Before you can take your new pet home, we’ll do a home check to ensure your property’s suitable for the animal you’ve chosen.


Every animal adopted must be sterilised before going home.

going home

You’ve paid the adoption fee, your property’s been approved, your pet’s sterilised ... home-time!
