Lost & Found
We operate a lost-and-found service from both our Waltloo and Centurion premises to assist the community to find their lost pets.
In 2014 we reunited 271 animals with their owners. This number could be much higher if more owners microchipped their pets to enable their identification. Microchipping your pet can be done by your local vet or at our Animal Clinic at a discounted rate for those who cannot afford private veterinary fees.
My pet has gone missing, what should I do?
- Don’t just phone the animal shelters, they are all over stretched and under staffed. Go there in person.
- Go and complete a missing pet form at the Tshwane SPCA Waltloo and Centurion branches and attach a colour printed picture of your pet.
- Upload your missing pet’s information on Pets Lost & Found
- Upload your missing pet’s information on the following Facebook pages: • Tshwane SPCA, Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre, Wollies Animal Project, Pet Tail, Animal Ambulance, Moot Lost & Found, Lost & Found Pretoria, Barking Mad and Valley Farm Animal Hospital.
- Check all vets in the nearby area
- Make missing posters and place in your neighbourhood, local schools & shopping malls.
- Remember to keep collars on all your pets, with your contact details on at all times.

What is microchipping?
A pet microchip, also known as a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT Tag) is an identifying electronic chip placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse, parrot or other animal. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses Radio Frequency Identification technology. This enables the easy identification of the animal, and instant finding of its details (such as the animal owner and their contact information) through scanning the chip.
You can get your pet microchipped for R300 at our Animal Clinic at Waltloo SPCA.
We are open weekdays Mon-Fri 08h00-16h30, Saturdays 08h00-12h00, but we accept animals 24 hours a day.
