The Work of an SPCA Inspector

The core purpose of any SPCA is the prevention of cruelty to animals, and in order to achieve this aim, qualified Inspectors are employed to enforce the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (Chapter 19:09).

Our Inspectors each respond to and investigate, an average of 40 cases of cruelty per month. These include, but are not limited to:

  • sick or injured animals not receiving adequate treatment
  • animals abandoned on properties or dumped
  • animals being tortured for human amusement
  • animals which are starving or not being cared for and properly fed
  • animals being abused in any way
  • animals not being housed properly or in danger from exposure to the elements
  • animals being kept solely to produce offspring for monetary gain (puppy/kitten “mills”)
  • animals left to stray and in danger of harm to themselves
  • other animals or to humans
  • animals being chained up or caged for too long a period
  • etc.

The suffering inspectors witness is unimaginable to the public.
