Establishment of a National SPCA of Namibia

Although the SPCA of Namibia (previously SPCA of S.W.A) was established on the 1 September 1949, and several branches subsequently followed afterwards, the different SPCA's always functioned separately & independently.
 
We are now truly proud to confirm that at last night's historical Special General Meeting it was unanimously voted that 8 branches will stand united under the national umbrella of the SPCA of Namibia - WO6:
Windhoek
Walvis Bay
Keetmanshoop
Otjiwarongo
Tsumeb
Grootfontein
Luderitz
Oshana
 
Branches who chose not to be part of this national body will then have to change their names - where applicable - and will not be allowed to use any part or abbreviation of the SPCA/Dierebeskermingsvereniging name &/or logo.
 
Main reasons for forming this national body is:
1. National jurisdiction to be  able to handle cruelty cases all over Namibia as a national body with more strength in expertise, means & manpower - as per our name, mission & vision.
2. Supporting structure for all branches: knowledge & expertise in different specialised areas, adhering corporate governance, financial, buying power, training, 1 constitution, consistency, national branding & marketing, software & operating systems, proper documentation & procedures etc.
3. Confirming to legal requirements as per Min of Health & Social Services and that of a Welfare Organisation.
4. Annual financial statements for more credibility & transparency
 
The SPCA of Namibia will consist of an Executive committee. 
 
At [the] meeting the following people were voted in the respective seats:
1. Kerrie Mostert - Chairperson
2. Donnovann Harmse - Vice Chairperson
3. Christa Jurgens - Treasurer
4. Sylvia Breitensein - Secretary (also representing Windhoek)
5. Monique Redecker - CEO 
 
Other members:
6. Gavin Brasler - Walvis Bay
7. Tim Probart - Keetmanshoop
8. Vicky Hu - Otjiwarongo
9. Aisha Pitsch - Tsumeb
10. Martie Vermeulen - Grootfontein
11. Elize Swartz - Luderitz
12. Wilmarie Horn - Oshana
13. Johann Maritz - Windhoek
14. Sigi Teetz - Windhoek
 
It was also voted & accepted to change the current logo's of the other branches to look similar to the newly designed logo of SPCA Windhoek. Each with their unique colour & name. Proudly designed & sponsored by Nelett Loubser of Kunshuis. Soon to be released.
 
The SPCA of Namibia will also have their own members, where these members will have the right to have a say in the national constitution by means of voting. All branches will still have their own members as well, and any individual/company can be a member of as many branches of his/her choosing. 
 
The different membership fees of the national SPCA of Namibia are as follows: 
1 year - N$500 per person - N$50 per youth (under 18*)
10 years - N$3000 p.p
Lifelong - N$7,000 p.p
*No voting right.
 
One of the many challenges will be our own national SPCA of Namibia Constitution. It was accepted by all to use the current constitution of SPCA Windhoek for the interim period - with immediate crucial changes as required. The executive committee will then use this constitution & the NSPCA constitution of SA as a guideline for our future national constitution. It will be a long tough road where patience & determination is key, but one we as team will conquer.
 
During the process of collecting necessary information of all the branches, the CEO of SPCA  - Monique Redecker - realised that all branches are truly struggling, not only financially, but not having the know-how, manpower & utilities to carry out even the basic requirements of a SPCA. Most of the branches do not have their own property, vehicle, computers, printers, software, trained staff, no kennels etc. Therefore the need for funding - via donations & sponsorship - is crucial.
 
If you &/or company want to be part of this truly proud moment & historical event, you can donate much needed funds into the following account:
 
SPCA of Namibia
FNB Power Station Branch
Saving Account: 622 6322 8259
 
Funds received will be used to cover the following costs - and sponsorship of the different products - will also be appreciated:
1. Compiling of new Constitution
2. United new logo & branding: Signage & clothing
3. Training: Expenses to travel & stay in SA and then to train SPCA branch staff.
4. Vehicle/travelling expenses to resepctive branches
5. IT related products: hardware & software, internet/wi-fi
6. Printing of official documentation
7. Stationery
8. Training material
9. Staff remuneration
10. Setting up of website and many other unforeseen costs
11. National marketing campaign
 
We truly want to thank each everyone who will contribute in any way - including the media via exposure - to help this executive team reach our goals. As mentioned, it will be a tough & long process, but so needed & worthwhile.
