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.

Sometimes it's all about networking and to combine forces if you have reached your limits and just can't do it on your own anymore.
So we are very lucky to have found two great people we - and these 5 tiny puppies - could count on and who were doing this extra step from wanting to help to actually doing something (more than a phone call)!

Their first guardian angel was Valence, a young man who called me about a bunch of puppies whose mother had been killed by a car in his street. He tried to look after them and fed them, but after a week only seven of the eleven little guys were still there. And the next morning only five.....

We have already way too many dogs at the shelter waiting for their forever home, but luckily I've met Kat recently, animal lover and dog rescues on her own. And she had offered to foster puppies if we are desperate and she has space. Well, we were desperate!
I called her and she didn't had a second of hesitation! Since she had to work, she sent somebody to collect the puppies from the street, Valence was waiting for him and after half an hour the little guys were in safety, one hour later had a full belly after their first bath 🙂

- check out the pictures: first two the puppies living on the street, last two at Kat's! -

So here are our Superstars! The five puppies (of course! ;-)), Valence, who wasn't looking away and let them just die on the street, contacted us and stood with them until they were safe and Kat, who just did what needed to be done and will nurse and pamper them until she finds them a good home.

I can't even start to explain how grateful we are to people like her!
We said it before: we do all we can to help as many animals as possible, but we can't do it on our own, we need your help to help them.
We need donations to run the shelter, feed the dogs and care for the outreach patients of course and we thank everybody from the bottom of our hearts who is supporting us!
But we also need foster homes to fall back on, if it just gets too much for us to handle. People like Kat, who care about the street dogs as much as we do and are willing to help and don't mind the possible fleabites involved.

For now we are so happy and relieved! THANK YOU!

1,200 dogs vaccinated and 36 neutered on our first day!
What an amazing start into our 4th year mass vaccination campaign in Meru district with Mission Rabies and WVS!

A huge shout out as well to our local supporters, Tanzania-Experience who offered free airport transfers for the international volunteers and Coastal Aviation for flying the vaccine from Mwanza to Arusha.
We highly appreciate it and with the money saved this way we are able to vaccinate even more dogs!

And the mission continues.....
