who are we
mission & vision
The Mission of the SPCA is to prevent cruelty and promote the welfare of all animals.
The Vision is to end animal cruelty In South Africa and engender compassion for all animals.
Gerhardt joined to committee in 2018, assisting initially with the Marketing of the Society before taking the chair in October 2018. His business, NETPOSITION, provides Internet Services as well as Web hosting with clients all over South Africa. Gerhardt also created the local Facebook Community group Jeffreys Bay Online in February 2016 and understands the value of online marketing.
After spending almost 20 years in the SA Navy serving in various posts after completing his Naval Officer’s training, he brings a vast knowledge of people and resource management to the table and is well suited to take the society to the next level, optimizing modern technology for management purposes.
He ran a very successful educational anti fireworks campaign during September 2018 within KOUGA reaching out and involving many schools in the region. In May 2019 the KOUGA Municipality approved a KOUGA Animal Management Committee proposed by him.
“I am very proud to be associated with SPCA ASSISI with a strong committee in support. We hope to make a difference in the lives of all animals in the KOUGA Region, and ultimately prevent cruelty to animals.” he said.

Manager Charity Shop
Suzanne has been managing animal affairs in Jeffreys Bay for many years. She manages the shop very efficiently ensuring there is always people in the shop.
She is by far the greatest volunteer most have ever seen, providing her time towards managing many Facebook Groups in order to keep an eye on animal related matters, with her sideline hobby being assisting with feral cats in Jeffreys Bay.
We would like you to know that not only will your donation directly benefit the animals in our area but – through a sharing agreement between all SPCAs nationwide – a portion will be used in other, less fortunate areas to benefit animals over a wider area. We feel sure you will approve of this outreach initiative and wish to thank you most sincerely for supporting our SPCA and the movement generally.
