By adopting one of our shelter dogs or cats you save a homeless animal and help us in our goal of giving these beautiful creatures a good and happy life.


Sponsoring a dog give you the chance to provide the necessary funding to shelter and rehabilitate for a dog of your choice.


As we rely 100% on donations, your support is needed to keep our spay / neuter and vaccination campaigns running. Without your help we can’t help.


Are you interested in “hands on” help or trying to gain work experience abroad? Please contact us for details on how you can be part of this program.

Two more puppies could move to their forever home!

And we have to say Prosper Philip Nguma is a model new-dog-owner! He asked loads of questions before adopting them, drove a hundred kilometer to bring them to our neuter clinic and we are frequently getting pictures and videos to see with our own eyes that Della and Marocco are doing great πŸ™‚

That's how it should be and apart of that, it makes us very happy πŸ˜‰

Well done Prosper and thank you so much!

I can safely say I've met loads of wonderful dogs in my life so it's safe to believe me if I tell you this is a very special guy: meet Marco!

Marco is a dog of some age. He struggled his whole life to survive on the streets and - you probably sensed that already - we would LOVE to find him a home where he can peacefully watch the clouds passing by for the rest of his days! πŸ™‚

But first read his story:
One month ago we received a call from a concerned and caring person. He had a chips mayai stand in Usa River (why that is important you will find out soon!) and told us that one of the dogs used to hang around his kiosk had been hit by a car - actually he was under the car when it took of.
Jens went to check on him and found the poor dog couldn't walk due to a dislocated hip and had an extensive swollen lower abdomen.

We put him on a drip and took him later to Merlino Vet. He was bleeding and leaking urine and if our fear of a torn urethra became true, there wouldn't be any hope for him....

But he was such a sweet and patience guy! The torn ears, a blind eye and scars all over him told us the story of his life, still he was the friendliest dog you can imagine!
Of course he was too weak to be with the other dogs, so he moved into our new office. (as always, every corner at Mbwa Wa africa is filled with dogs and the office managed 2 whole days to be a dog-free zone πŸ˜‰ )

Marco deserved a chance and we decided to give him some days to see if he was improving under the medication or not.
Needless to say he did!
It was a slow process. First he stood up, than he took some wobbly steps before laying down again, than some more.... His wounds were drained and treated and he lived up more and more. Only he didn't wanted to eat whatever nice chicken soup or other goodies we offered him. But then we remembered where he was coming from (now it comes! πŸ™‚ ) and with chips mayai (french fries in an omelette) we had the breakthrough!

With no other option to put him and since he like his bed in the corner so much, he remained our 'office dog' until now. But we feel sorry for him and would wish he could find a real home. He is the most easy going dog, good with all people and other dogs. The only thing he asks for is a place to rest his head and some love and attention what he will pay back a thousand times!

His days he is spending now mostly with Birgit's two dog pack. He can even make a little use of his leg again and is eating the normal dog food by now πŸ˜‰

But there must be a person out there who finally want to give him the feeling of security and togetherness he never had in all these past years, someone willing to make the time he has left happier than he ever could imagine!
Marco deserves it!

Is it you?
