  1. STEP 1 - view the animals currently up for adoption by visiting our Facebook page where we regularly post images and updates on the animals available for adoption. Try it now!
  2. STEP 2 - visit our kennels to view the animal in person at either our Vereeniging or Vanderbijlpark branch. Visiting hours from 8:00 to 16:00 on Mondays to Fridays and 8:00 to 12:00 on Saturdays. We are closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.
  3. STEP 3 - an adoption application will then be completed in person at either of our two branches. This assists us in finding a perfect match for you and your family. When completing an adoption application, we will require a copy of your identity document, proof of residence, and where applicable proof that pets are allowed.
  4. STEP 4 - pay a non-refundable adoption deposit of R100, which is included in the total adoption fee. 
  5. STEP 5 - a home inspection will then be done prior to the completion of the adoption process. 
  6. STEP 6 - it is required that once your adoption is approved, a meet and greet is arranged with your family and current dogs.
  7. STEP 7 - once your application is approved and the animal is ready to join their new family, you will be notified when you are able to collect. The remainder of the adoption fee will also be payable in full. You do not pay for the animal but rather for the expenses incurred by the SPCA, i.e. sterilisation, the first vaccination, de-worming, an ID disc and a microchip. 

Please allow roughly 7 days for the adoption process to be completed.

Once you’ve decided which dog or cat you’d like to adopt, one of Inspectors will visit your home. This ensures that your property is suitable for the animal concerned. The Inspector will also take note of the following:

● Condition of other pets
● Whether adequate shelter is provided
● Where the dog or cat will sleep at night
● Size of the property
● Height of the wall
● Ensure that the property is fully enclosed

Important: If you reside in another SPCA's jurisdiction then they will be responsible for conducting the home inspection and their rules will also apply. 

You must be over 18 years of age to adopt.

Your property must be fully enclosed.

You must be able to afford the services of a private vet and have your own transport to take your pet to the vet.

Important:
If you reside in another SPCA's jurisdiction then they will be responsible for conducting the home inspection and their rules will also apply. 

For an easier transition, we highly recommend adopting a male dog if you already have a resident female dog.

If you have other pets (especially dogs), we request that you first bring them to the Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA for a “meet & greet” with your new adopted pet.

Often we have no history on a dog, therefore if you have young children bring them to meet the animal.

We strongly suggest that research is done to establish the cost implications with regard to food, vaccinations, monthly de-fleaing, de-worming and veterinary bills (pet insurance is an option). Carefully consider whether you have the time required to successfully integrate the new pet into your household and the time to spend with your pet e.g. walking, playing and training.
