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.

Yesterday we had an outstanding and very nice visitor. Dawn 'Eilert' Anderson came from America with a lot of goodies for our dogs!
But she did it for a certain reason. In her own words:

"I just wanted to mention to you that this donation is special to me. Tomorrow is my late husband's birthday, April 17. Every year on his birthday I pick out a cause to donate to, as a memorial to him. His name was Mike. He loved dogs, and all animals, but especially dogs. And he loved Tanzania. We came to Tanzania many times together over the 16 years we were married. He was the brightest light you can imagine.💕"

We are really touched and honored that she picked us and used this sad occasion to do something good for the dogs of Tanzania!

So this lovely Lady arrived with two full suitcases of fun stuff! Of course we are always appreciating necessaries for the shelter, without them we couldn't survive, but enrichment's, things for playing and to keep them happy are just as important!
There are toys, balls, fluffy blankets for the puppies, water fountains and a doggy pool! Watch this space we will post pictures soon 🙂

Dawn, it was so nice meeting you! And the dogs agree, because every single one of them loved you!
We wish you all the best and hope to see you again one day!
Knowing you - a bit - Mike must have been a wonderful and happy man <3

Miracles happen!

Did we said that before? Yes we did, and it is still true!
We also said that our paralyzed cat Shujaa would never find a home in Tanzania - but that wasn't true at all!
Shujaa found a wonderful, loving home with Stephanie and her family 🙂

Here is the message we got today:
"My husband named her Angaza (Shine). Aka Shujaa. ❤️. She is at home and is blissfully happy—purring like crazy and chasing me all over so she can head butt me."
And we know more, we know that she has the prime spot on Stephanie's lap while watching television in the evening 😉

Thank you Stephanie for falling head over heels for this stunning cat. We know she is all worth it! And It takes a special person to see the actual beauty before the disability!

Dobby needs YOU!

Three years ago this handsome dog was rescued by Mbwa Wa Africa as a tiny puppy. Soon he was adopted by a wonderful family and grew into a happy, healthy dog.
Due to unforeseen circumstances they can’t take care of Dobby any longer and he urgently needs a new home and loving family. He has a very sweet and calm nature, is great with kids and all people and will just make the perfect family dog!
Since he left MWA he was never around other dogs again and is not socialized, so he will be most happy as a single pet.
He is used to live free around the house, a life on a chain or in a small doghouse won’t be an option.
Dobby is currently located in Njiro/Arusha.
Will you make this great dog part of your family?
