If you find a lost dog or cat – please bring it to the SPCA. We'll check to see if it has been micro-chipped and try to trace the owner. You can assist by asking round the neighbourhood in which the animal was found to see if anyone is missing their pet.

The Swartland and West Coast SPCA must shelter a stray animal for 7 days before it becomes available for adoption A “lost and found” registry is kept and owners hopefully claim their pets within this period. A joyful reunion is one of the highlights of our day! 

Check at the SPCA first!
If you have lost your dog or cat, please visit to check whether he or she has been brought in to the SPCA. .

You are welcome to phone first, but please understand that it is extremely difficult to describe animals over the telephone and there is no substitute for identifying your pet face-to-face.

Keep your dog or cat safe
Remember, sterilised pets are less like to wander away from home and get lost. And having a micro-chip implanted in the loose skin on the back of your pet's neck is the best way to make sure you never lose a beloved dog or cat. At the very least your dog should have a tag attached to it's collar it's name and your telephone number on it.

If you have lost your pet please send a recent photo to
include where and what time it was lost
