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.

One lucky puppy!

Janny was only 4 weeks old when the van Westen/ de Vries family found her wandering around in the middle of a road. Her left front paw was badly injured, full of maggots and infected, she wouldn't have survived much longer. Despite they had to leave back to the Netherlands soon they didn't leave her behind. First she was brought to a vet and the next day to our shelter.
The little paw definitely needed proper treatment and the little dog love and cuddles and we were happy to provide that service ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now one week later it has healed quite nicely. Janny will have to live with a deformed paw for the rest of her life, but her family will get her to the Netherlands in some month time to give her a forever home!

Thanks for taking responsibility for a tiny dog in far away Tanzania, you are awesome!

Quick up date from Kodiak: he is doing fantastic! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unbelievable that it is only 4 weeks ago when that we found him on the road more dead than alive. Look at him now!
He is an absolute sweet and chilled dog (except if it comes to monkeys that is ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), has never trouble with everyone and just loves to go on long walks!

Here he is in the forest with our Nell. Nelly has anxiety issues if she is outside the shelter, nearly everything can scare her. But Kodi has a wonderful calming affect on Nell, what is really amazing to witness.
They make a great couple and although Kodi would be an awesome addition to any family or friend to another dog of any age, we share their dream of finally finding a loving and understanding home together!

Do you want to come and meet them?
