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.

Welcome Nilay and Amal as the youngest members of the MWA pack!

The little dogos were born 9 weeks ago at a apartment complex, but nobody wanted to keep them. Why is a miracle to us, they are pure joy, super-cute-snuggle-babies, healthy and in some weeks ready to be adopted by their loving family!
We also introduce our new special puppy area, where they can be with some of the older dogs (here Babu, doing his duty as grandpa, and Mary Poppins...well, that is obvious, as a nanny ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), but still are protected by a fence from the pack.
Kelli and Birgit designed and build it together with our staff Amoni, Maiko and Eliza as a surprise for me! Well done guys, it's awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dear Arusha community, we need your HELP!

Yesterday our beautiful, one and a half years old rescue Ilvy disappeared from her foster home in Olasiti.

Ilvy is a medium size, yellow dog with hanging ears and a bright, light green collar. One toe at her left rear paw is missing. Of course she is fully vaccinated and spayed, she even has a microchip. No hazard is coming from her.
She is shy with strangers and will possibly avoid to go near humans, but we hope she will once she is getting hungry.
If you see her, or think you may have seen her, please donโ€™t hesitate to contact us. She maybe will snarl, if she is getting cornered, but she is NOT aggressive, just scared!

Please help to get her home!

Thank you in advance!

Our Akili!

Do you remember this beautiful boy who found his way to us in March, after living with a broken back on the streets for 3 month?

Akili settled in really well! He loves to play with the puppies, has his routines and favorite spots to chill out, got calm, confident and cuddly ๐Ÿ˜‰
He was fast moving around, however still dragged his rear legs behind most of the time. Clearly his stiff and wounded right leg was in his way, what kept him from using the left one more efficiently and bent his backbone.

After careful consideration we decided last week to amputate his right leg and I am happy to report that this was obviously the right thing to do!
It will take some time to heal and to build up some muscles. Also the remaining leg is sadly contracted (stiff, not as bad as the other one though), but he is already trying to push himself up on it and his back has gotten more strait ๐Ÿ™‚
Maybe, with a lot of physio and patience we will see this amazing dog walking again one day - lets all hope! <3

Up date on Kodi (because I know that many of you care)!

He is doing much better, I found him like this earlier today ๐Ÿ™‚
He is still in pain, has a head trauma and possible internal injuries, but he is eating, walking, was out for a bit and already jumping on computer desks and makes himself a home ๐Ÿ™‚
I swear, it wasn't a mess like this before,we really need a bigger shelter with a real clinic, where our tiny office doesn't has to double as hospital ward...!
However: happy he is on the mend!
