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.

Tanza struck it lucky! 🙂

It took this charming little boy only one month to find himself a home. When Rita and Dustin came to the shelter, he knew it was his time to shine and they couldn't resist the innocent puppy-eyes he flaunted 😉

In their own words:
"Tanza (now called Greebo) is settling in wonderfully with his new family! He already knows ‘sit’ ‘down’ ‘stay’ ‘come’ and ‘shake’. And he is mostly potty trained! He is a smart little guy 💕 "

Congratulations Greebo and a big thank you to your new humans for giving you a chance and such a loving home! <3

That is a big number!
For Arusha it’s 1765 rabies vaccination shots later, what means 1765 animals got vaccinated and the people and dogs of the city are a bit safer these days 🙂

And talking about numbers, here are more:

During our latest campaign in the northern wards of Arusha (Baraa, Kimandolu, Sekei, Kaloleni, Kati, Levolosi, Ngarenaro, Sakina and Elerai) we managed to vaccinate 114 cats and 1654 dogs and 11 cats and 119 of these dogs got neutered!
19.882 primary school students in 26 schools got educated about rabies, how to stay save around dogs and what to do when they got hurt by one – and how to avoid that in the first place.

All of this we can’t achieve alone, so a huge shout out once again to our local volunteers, it is great to have a motivated team at your side to promote animal welfare with for!

And a massive thank you goes as well to Merlino Veterinary Clinic and Jenny MacAlistair for providing their surgery skills (and so much more!)!
Not to forget Olga and Jan for helping out with manpower and their (badly needed!) vehicles!

We all have dreams, but to make them come true you need people who share them with you. So all of this would also not be possible without the financial support from Good Gifts Catalogue for the vaccination campaign and Cold Noses Foundation for the sterilization clinic.

Thank you all!

Hope for Akili!?

Almost two weeks ago Jens was approached about a young, paralyzed dog living on the street in the middle of Arusha town. Apparently he was hit by a car around Christmas last year, what is almost 3 month ago....
Since then Akili was fighting for his life every single day, how he could manage that is a mystery to us.

He still has feelings in one hint leg, but - and it is a big but! - next to being severely malnourished, his rear legs and back are contracted, which means he can't stretch them anymore, he can't put any weight on them and sometimes he appears to be in pain...
We are always willing to help these poor street victims and are absolutely aware that sometimes the best help is to peacefully let them go. However, something about Akili made us think and rethink again and again what would be best for him and we decided to give him some more time.

By now he settled in with the other dogs and especially wants to be near Babu all the time <3. He moves around on his terms, eats a lot and his drag marks are healing. He also shows way less distress if we have to handle him and we have the feeling that his whimpering and crying came more from the fear to get hurt than from actual pain.
And - of course - he got our hearts already!

So we will try to get more diagnostics, hope and watch for progress - or not. It is always though, but we will not let him suffer, if this is the road he is going.

For now he is getting quieter and more happy every day.
Time will tell!
