Puppies
If anyone has a small dog breed puppy in Gauteng to give away, please let me know. I am not worried about breed or pedigree, my best friends when growing up were "pavement specials"

Most of them do, some may differ.

The adoption fee covers, your animal, sterilization, a microchip, vaccine and dewormer.

They really dont make any money on the adoption fee.

RE: Puppies
Adopting from the SPCA is a tedious affair, they sometimes make it more difficult than its worth. You can also go check your local vet if anyone has puppies.

Sorry you encountered that, the process is : you choose an animal, fill out an application form, then they come to your property and do a home check, to see whether the property is suitable for the animal, if all is good, you will be notified and then the sterilization process will begin, it shouldnt take longer than a week.

Sometimes you may adopt from an SPCA outside of your area, that may take a little longer as your local SPCA will need to do the home check.

RE: Puppies
Its the home check that for me is a tedious process and then you have to explain or show how the swimming pool wont be an issue ect ect.

Far easier to just pickup a puppie on gumtree and train it to not jump in the pool or actually teach it to swim and it then has a way to cool itself off. Also the no paperwork is what I like.

I would much prefer to adopt one but meh my schedule never works out for the people that want to do the homecheck so I gave up on it.

"You go there you see a pup you like, they say its available for adoption, you say ok yes I want to adopt one, suddenly sorry they aren't available yet try again in a month. Phone after a month sorry all the puppies are dead." This happened to my wife when we went to the SPCA there was a litter of dachshunds, I didn't want another pup as we already have a bull terrier and pitbull but after enough nagging I caved but then when she phoned they told her that the puppies were too young and will only be ready in a month or 2 but we would have to phone them the next month. We she phoned all the puppies died.
I'm sorry but, we would have adopted the pup and taken him/her directly to our vet to start the vaccinations and it might have lived. I know they have to check to make sure the animal goes to a proper home but they saw my pitbull and even complimented on her condition and demeanor. Sorry but had to get that of my chest.

I dont mind the doggos swimming tbh. The point was they always want to find a reason to say the home is not good enough.

Puppy aside, your pool should have a safety net. Pretty certain it’s law in GP.

Most purposes can swim (breed dependant), the issue is whether it will be able to get out of the pool.

RE: Puppies
Sounds like a lot of lame bullshit excuses to me. We have only ever adopted from the SPCA.

The world is not hassle and issue free, sometimes you have to work for what want even if it is a puppy or a kitten.


When we adopted our first cat we initially wanted her brother cause he was less shy and way more friendly, but he was already reserved. Halfway home I said to my wife you know what, we are going back now and talking the other one, because why does she not deserve a change as well? 3 years later she is still shy when new people arrive but we have an epic bond. She freaking sleeps on my chest almost every night, for the majority of then night. My wife actually says the cat gets more attention than she does. Come new years and Diwali we must extra sure she is safely inside and we must be ready calm her down. The other cat can't be bother funny enough, has almost no fear for the unknown.

Don't let some easy to resolve administration be the excuse to help any animal. Then once you have to it, treat it with respect and give it the right attention it needs. If you going to get a cat make sure you meet their requirements if going to get a hunting dog know they require a ton of stimulation or they will destroy your house. If you aren't willing to fence the pool or to put up a gate or resolve some admin issue, you are clearly not really willing to commit to 7-20 years of attention to the animal either.

RE: Puppies
I have not posted here in years but often browse. This post is bringing me forward though.

Adopt from the SPCA. My wife and I took our son there two weeks ago to look for a mate for my daughters Maltese since my 14 year old jack Russel passed away. It was truly a very emotional experience especially for my son. He as in tears looking at all the little souls jumping when seeing humans. hoping they get another chance on life. After I explained to him he can only choose one he decided on this very busy little guy, a 3 year old male Maltese. I wanted a Jack Russel again, but this time around it was not my choice.

If you the kind of person who is not willing to spend R800 on adoption fees, not willing to fill in forms, or willing to take the time out of your busy schedule to meet an inspector ask yourself if you really willing to take on the responsibility of a pet or can afford the expenses associated with owning a pet and if you can afford the time you need to take out of your schedule for its needs.

We went the Friday, little Cody chose us. We went back later with my daughters Maltese (Miley) for them to see if they compatible which they fortunately were. We filled in a few forms, I paid the adoption deposit (total fee is dirt cheap since they are sterilized, micro chipped and is given their shots). The next Wednesday morning the inspector called me and asked to come do the inspection. I went home and met him at my house. 10 Min later he was satisfied and that very afternoon I went and picked Cody up.

The journey has been very rewarding. Sure its easy to go buy a pup, but adopting is so much more rewarding. I suspect Cody came from a n abusive past. He would wet himself if I came near him or any male adult for that matter. A week later and he follows me every where once I get home after dancing on his rear legs. He is fully bonded to my wife, the kids, myself and Miley. It took me literally 3 days to house train him. Its been only a week but we cannot imagine our lives without Cody. He was there since November last year.

Be a good person and save a life.

RE: Puppies
Please consider adopting instead of buying.

There are so many abandoned animals in need of homes everywhere.

If you don't want to pay, then go to any vet and you will find numerous posters of people that are no longer able to care for their animals, be it immigrating, moving to not pet friendly places, etc.

However, if you are looking for the cheap route, I have to agree with @Sabretooth tiger. Pets are a responsibility and if you aren't able to give them the attention and funds when needed, you should reconsider your reasons for adopting.

If you want to adopt and not from the SPCA, please consider going to Wollies (https://www.wollies.org/). They do great work and really look after their animals. They also do not put animals down.

I'm not trying to come off as high and mighty or anything like that but want to emphasize that animals are not toys. They need care and time. It's not fair to adopt and not being able to give your pet what they deserve.

RE: Puppies
Just to add. They actually give you time to rectify anything out of place in your yard (from my chat to the inspector). So they don't just simply decline. They want the animals to be homed as much as we want to home them. They do however have a responsibility to make sure the animal don't end up in the same situation it came from.

The inspector was happy the yard is closed and the dog cannot get out. He looked at my pool and said its OK if there is no net as its not a puppy. I however pointed out to him I do have a net, it was just not over the pool as the kids were swimming.
