What's the deal with pets during the 21-day lockdown? Belinda Abraham of SPCA answers.


Brandon Leigh chats to Belinda Abraham of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA to find out what pet-owners should and should not do during South Africa's 21-day lockdown. 

Belinda urges pet-owners to seek information from credible sources such as the World Health Organization. 

According to WHO, there is no evidence that a dog or a cat or any pet can transmit COVID-19

The SPCA will still be open during this time of crisis, and are doing everything they can to prevent animal suffering. 

We are going to have 23 staff, including a qualified Veterinarian quarantined with our animals on-site. 

We are very concerned that there's going to be an influx of abandoned animals. 

Will we be allowed to walk our dogs?

Zweli Mkhize has confirmed South Africans may walk dogs and go for jogs and lockdown is to avoid congregating in large numbers.
