New pound for stray animals

18 April 2019

Stray animals can now be reported to the Kouga Call Centre.

Community Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson said a new pound had been established near Humansdorp to assist with the management of stray animals in the Kouga region.

“We are grateful that a new pound has opened. The only other facility in the area is the Loerie pound, which has had to close pending the outcome of an investigation into the conditions there,” he explained.   

He said the new pound was also privately owned and made use of a service provider to pick up stray animals.

“Once a stray animal is reported to the municipality’s Call Centre, our Law Enforcement Officers make contact with the pound to arrange for the animals to be collected.”

He said 10 animals were impounded during the first three weeks of operations.

He encouraged all livestock owners to ensure that their animals do not wander around unattended and that they are properly branded.

“Ultimately, it is the responsibility of livestock owners to keep their animals from damaging other people’s property and roaming around in the road, where they can cause serious accidents,” he said.

The Kouga Call Centre can be contacted on 042 200 2200. Simply follow the voice prompts and choose option five to connect with a Call Centre operator.
