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.

This little video especially goes out to our former volunteers!

The ones who knew Jiji, the dog formerly known as Jacky, as a very timid and troubled animal. Who was scared of people and most other dogs. It took a year and a lot of patience of Birgit and Claudia before they could touch and train her.
Half a year ago a miracle happend and Jiji found her forever home and in Gaby and Jan people, who were willing to give her all the time she would need..
And now: THIS!

We are blown away!!!!
What more prove would you need that all dogs want to be part of a family from the bottom of their heart!

Thank you so much Gaby and Jan! <3

More of our beautiful kittens found a loving home! 🙂

Sharon reports that she has a lot of fun with her little ginger tomcats and we are particular happy that lovely mother cat Nasinjari along with her daughter found a place to call home with our friend Rodger!

For sure they are laying a lot of cuddle- and purr-filled days ahead!

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!
