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.

Gosh, so much is happening at Mbwa Wa Africa at the moment! But we want to keep you informed - sometimes maybe a little bit delayed - so please bear with the load of post we put on you - and keep on liking us and sharing!

Already two weeks ago the little brothers Snowy and Browny were brought to our gate. Snowy was even too weak to lift his head and their owner told us that another sibling died that morning. He thought that they had been poisoned. They had bloody diarrhea and we suspected parvo virus as the worst case. Luckily we were wrong! After 3 tense days of only receiving fluids they finally could keep down some food and from there they got better every day 🙂

When their owner took them home (unfortunately I don't have a picture) he got two playful, happy puppies back! 🙂

Thanks again to Animal-Kind International! Only the support of this wonderful organization enables us to help village dogs like Snowy and Browny. Without that, they wouldn't have a chance....

Please help!

Through no fault of their own a home is urgently needed for these two beautiful dogs!
A forever loving home would be perfect, but also a foster home would be highly welcome for now.

The brown female dog Missy is around 4 years old, her son Phil is 2 years. They are extremely loving, vaccinated and healthy - a wonderful addition to any family!

If you are willing to open your home and heart to them, please send us a message or contact their owner Nathalie +255787876287
They are located in Njiro, Arusha.

Thank you all!

It’s with the heaviest of hearts we are writing this

Yesterday our friend Lieve said forever good bye to this world.

Many will know Dr Lieve Lynen from Merlino Vet Clinic in Arusha. Countless of our rescue dogs and cats owe their lives to her and in fact without her support Mbwa Wa Africa wouldn’t even exist.
We will miss her knowledge, no-fuss approach and most of all her friendship so much. But we are glad and thankful to have known her, that we could spend so many years together and for everything she taught us – which is a lot!
Our hearts and thoughts are with her family and staff.

Farewell Lieve, always missed and always loved

The World Rabies Day 2019 theme is "Vaccinate to Elimate"

We couldn't do this without our amazing volunteers!
Once again Carissa and Wilfred have been leading the education teams where Victor and Gasper joined this time, reaching out to 16 schools and over 10,592 children in the first week alone. These lessons can be life saving as many people are not aware how to react to dogs - dog prevention is one of the topics we teach.

A big shout out as well to our vaccination teams, they improved so much over the years with dog handling and keeping calm when many children and friends of the children and friends of the friends turn up to bring the dogs for vaccination - one of the skills you need when vaccinating 974 dogs and 41cats in 2 days.

We will keep you posted over the next week.

And don't forget, a responsible dog owner vaccinates his animals. Spread the word and help us to eliminate K9 transmitted rabies.
