Charity Veterinary Training Center
In 2013 we started Mbwa Wa Africa as small privately run dog rescue. By advertising rescued dogs for re-homing in the local Arusha Mailing list, via the website and our Facebook page more awareness of the shelter facility was started and more dogs got rescued, reaching the peak in 2015 when 30dogs including puppies got accommodated in 7 kennels only with the help of foster homes could prevent more puppies from euthanasia.
This overwhelming response is unfortunately also leading to a new situation as we had to turn down Kennel guest dogs which are the major financial support of the shelter.
The workload for Sandra and Jens also got grew to the limit, despite employing two full time helper, a part time cleaner, a night guard, weekend helpers and allocating one of our gardeners part time to the project to help with the dog walks.
Caused by the above mentioned awareness of the shelter we reached our limit in respect of all resources and space both human and financially, but not our will to help.
We therefor want to build the first Animal Welfare and Veterinary Training Center in the Arusha Region.
A permanent Spay / Neuter Clinic will have a long lasting impact on the dog population, local vets and vet technician will be trained on the latest best practice method for surgeries and we can offer training courses on animal handling.
Additional Kennels can accommodate boarding dogs again and add income to the dearly needed funding and we could also provide dog training facilities.
