If you love animals why not spend Mandela Day at the SPCA in Plumstead?

You’ll find 27 things to do (one for each year Madiba spent in prison) at our SPCA on Mandela Day. And because July 18 falls on a Saturday this year, we’re inviting you to spend your 67 minutes making life better for our furry friends on either Friday 17 OR Saturday 18 July.
