What is the SPCA not responsible for?
Some situations that may appear as though the SPCA should get involved, are not actually within our mandate. Our mandate is to prevent cruelty, and in Namibia's largest city, our Inspectors must place their focus on cases where the Animals Protection Act is being contravened. We ask that you please follow these guidelines below:
The mandate of the SPCA is to prevent cruelty to animals. However, the local Municipality and police in the City of Windhoek are responsible for complaints regarding animals causing a nuisance or disturbance of the peace. We suggest that you contact your local Municipality or police station in order to lodge a formal complaint regarding barking dogs.
The local Municipality is responsible for the collection of dead animals found in public areas and on roads. Please contact the City of Windhoek for assistance in this matter.
The Selling Of Animals
The SPCA opposes the sale/trading of animals, however, it is not illegal to trade with domestic animals and we, therefore, have no jurisdiction to intervene unless there are welfare concerns. In this case, we need the breeder's address to conduct an inspection.
