Support our runners

On Sunday 13 October, our team of SPCA runners will take to the streets of Durban to raise funds for animals at our SPCA. Please support them along the route – and consider sponsoring them for R10, R20 or R50 per kilometre. Get your friends to join in too, by challenging them to equal or better your donation!

Your support provides food, veterinary treatment, comfort and care for animals that have been neglected, hurt, injured or abandoned. Thank you!

Who will you support?


Lauren Pretorius

I consider myself to be more of a dog person because I enjoy their high energy, enthusiasm and loyalty. I am a young scientist with a passion for the environment, the world and the people in it. My running philosophy is to aim at smashing goals but never do it if its not fun! My goal with participating in this campaign is to help raise awareness and funds for beautiful creatures who need our help AND to have fun doing it.


Storm Fallet

I am a runner and animal lover who is passionate about Ultra distance running and helping neglected cats and dogs. I have run 5 Comrades Marathons, 3 Two Oceans and numerous Ultra trail runs. I also have five adopted rescue dogs and three rescue cats and am so proud to be able to combine my two passions and participate in the FNB City Surf run to raise money for the Durban and Coast SPCA. I would appreciate any donation.


Chief Mthembu

I've been running for the SPCA since 2017 and have a big passion for animals! You may know me as the barefoot runner – I have participated in a number of marathons and ultra-marathons, including Comrades (yes ... barefoot), Deloitte, Chatsworth 52km and Durban City. I have also completed nearly 200 Parkruns and am a designated Parkrun Tourist – as well as a single handicap golfer and a grassroots soccer coach. Please support me!


Joe Cawley

Both our dogs, Boston and Daisy, are rescue dogs and the SPCA has a special place in our lives. I am running the FNB Durban CitySurf again this year to raise funds for the Durban and Coast SPCA. They receive no state funding for the work they do and are reliant on the community for operating costs. Please help by sponsoring me or any of our team members – all funds raised go directly to the SPCA. Thank you in advance for your support.



Mandy Marincowitz

My two pooches were rescue dogs from the SPCA. Patches and Jack are just so special and the SPCA is a charity very close to my heart. The SPCA is reliant on donations and In these hard economic times, they are having to deal with more and more unwanted pets. Please help me make them just a bit more comfortable by sponsoring me. Every donation, no matter how much, counts. Thanking you in advance.


Daniel Wiebesiek

I am honoured to have the opportunity to help the SPCA for the 3rd year. Running has become a passion for me and to use it as a vehicle to help such a worthy cause is such a great feeling. I have owned two dogs and both of them were adopted from the Durban & Coast SPCA; this is my way of thanking them for the joy they helped bring into my life.


Angela Lardant

My heart is full of paw prints. I'm an avid animal lover, especially dogs (of any breed). At the moment I have four rescue dogs who are my everything. The world would be a much nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog. I believe we can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of animals. It would be pawesome if you would support me to raise funds for our furry friends.


OTHER ways to help

If you love animals, please support our efforts to protect them from cruelty and neglect. There are lots of different ways to help.

Sponsor a Yard Cat

Provide care and shelter for one of the cats that live permanently at our SPCA because they cannot be re-homed – with your monthly sponsorship gift of just R150.


Volunteering is an enriching experience for anyone who has some free time on a regular basis and wants to make a difference. You need to be over 16 years of age, reliable and have your own transport.

Get a MySchool Card

It costs you nothing, and you'll help animals every time you swipe the card at Woolworths and other participating stores. Be sure to nominate Durban & Coast SPCA as the beneficiary. Download the app from the Apple store or Google play, or click the button to sign up online.

Donate in lieu of a gift

Helping to make a better world for animals is the perfect way to honour a friend or loved one who prefers not to receive gifts for a birthday, anniversary or other celebration.

Support Coffee Cats

Enjoy a cuppa or a light meal in the tranquil setting of our cafe and tea garden. Meet our famous yard cats, browse plants for sale, visit our charity shop or Adoption Centre.

Include us in your Will

If kindness towards animals has been one of the guiding principles of your life, wouldn’t you enjoy knowing that your voice against cruelty, neglect, greed and ignorance will continue to be heard beyond your lifetime?

Donate unwanted items

Your unwanted furniture, clothing, household appliances, books, jewellery, etc can be sold in our charity shop to raise funds towards the care of our furry orphans. We also appreciate gifts of pet food, blankets, etc.

Collect small change for us

If you own or manage a retail outlet or are a member of a club, why not keep one of our collection tins on your counter? Small change mounts up quickly and makes a big difference to our Society!

Shop til you drop

We have a charity shop filled with amazing bargains, as well as a section of brand new pet products – collars & leads, tick & flea remedies, grooming products, toys & pet food.

Buy plants

Fill your garden with beautiful healthy seedlings, shrubs and trees supplied by Ladybird Landscapes. Large selection available at our nursery, adjacent to Coffee Cats.

Sponsor a kennel

When you sponsor a kennel at the SPCA at a cost of R150 monthly, your kindness doesn't only touch one dog. Hundreds of sad, hurting and frightened dogs will find sanctuary in 'your' kennel, while they wait to be adopted.
