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.

We have sad news: our shelter is filled to overflowing, if you ever wanted a dog: this is the right time to get a live long friend โ€“ or two - from Mbwa Wa Africa!

There are so much more dogs and puppies on the streets out there in desperate need of help, so if you give one of our rescues a loving home, you can save him and another street dog that we are able to take in again!

The black puppies are already 8 month old, of medium size and like the adult dogs trained on basic commands, walks and tricks.

The brown ones 3-4 month, friendly playful and just adorable! And also their gorgeous mothers are looking for a place to call home!
But they all have something in common: they are all truly wonderful pets! Puppies, youngsters, grown dogs in every color and shapes all pure breed Tanzanian country crosses! Some are cuddly family dogs, some more free spirit guarding dogs, most are a bit of both!

All are very social, friendly, playful and healthy, wormed and defleaed and vaccinated according to their age. The older ones are already neutered.

However, they are seeking for homes where they can be part of the family and wonโ€™t be locked in or chained up all day. They will still guard you and your property. If you treat them well a dog will be your best friend โ€“ and protection!

*By the way, you can follow their stories on Instagram: *

For a fully vaccinated dog, we kindly ask when adopting to help with a donation of 50.000TS to cover a part of the costs and treatments.

Thank you and karibuni Mbwa Wa Africa!

Isn't that a lovely family? <3

It is safe to say that they are some of the most pleasant doggies we ever had the pleasure to met!
And imagine: ALL of them need a HOME!

Mona is a wonderful mother to her puppies Emil, Oskar, Togo, Della, Marokko, Mali and Tanzi (and her 'foster child' Gordon ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). But the little guys turn 15 weeks now and it is about time for them to move to their very own families! ๐Ÿ™‚

They are all you could wish for: beautiful, friendly, playful, cuddly and VERY cute!
Of course they are vaccinated and free of parasites as well.

Maybe you are the lucky one who will call one or two of them your forever friend?

Please get in touch with us if you want to visit or adopt!

Hitting the 70% again! ๐Ÿ™‚

Our work to eliminate rabies in Meru District continues! For the 3rd year already we vaccinated in Nkoaranga and Nkanaekolis wards. We can proudly report that once again the 70% of vaccinated dogs to fight this deadly disease could be reached!

Over two weekends 1,098 dogs got vaccinated this year and over 2,000 children received rabies education by our amazing education team!!
It is great to see the response of the community and how the teams were welcomed by the dog owners when arriving at the vaccination points.
We are also very happy about the cooperation with the local government authorities. They were highly supporting our efforts and helped tremendously with spreading the word about the campaign.

However, the best reward is getting feedback's from the schools like :
โ€œIt is great that you are here because we fear dogs and they are Godโ€™s creatures and we need to learn to get along better with them.โ€
Thank you, guess we are on the right track there! ๐Ÿ™‚

And a massive thank you to our committed Tanzanian Volunteer Team! It makes us proud to see how much they developed over the years, showing great dog handling skills, stepping in when owners are not treating their dogs correctly and tireless explaining about importance of rabies elimination, dog population control and general animal welfare!

Thank you all for making this possible!
