The City of Cape Town has brought the SPCA on board as a service provider in support of its Law Enforcement Department.
The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith, today laid a commemorative cornerstone to signal the start of construction of a new animal care facility at the SPCA’s Grassy Park premises.
“I am honoured to have been part of this event. I have always had a very soft spot for animals and I am a great admirer of the work that our animal welfare organisations do”, said Smith.
Today’s bricklaying event follows the City’s appointment of the SPCA as a service provider in support of its Law Enforcement Department, especially when it comes to the Animal By-law. A three-year service level agreement to the value of R4,5 million will be signed soon.
“I am very excited about this partnership because it underscores the importance of working together to achieve our goals and build a better city for our residents and, in this case, the many animals who are left at the mercy of people”, said Smith.
