Friends of Mbwa wa Africa was founded by Phyllis Hutchison and she spearheads all the fundraising in Scotland for this amazing charity in Tanzania.
What We Do
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 or cat gives you the chance to provide the necessary funding to shelter and rehabilitate for a dog or cat 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.
Our Core Mission
The Reason We Are Here
Founded in 2013 we rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need and run regular spay / neuter and rabies vaccination campaigns in the Arusha region, Tanzania.
How we work
Please give what you can as little and as often as you can. Every penny counts and we can’t do this without your support.
With Sponsor-A-Dog-Or-Cat you will provide the necessary funding to shelter and rehabilitate a dog or cat until they are able to be suitably re-homed.
What Our Volunteers Say
I’ve worked with a few animal welfare charities, but Mbwa wa Africa is special. I first met Jens and Sandra in 2018 and from the first visit they treated me like family. I’ve now had 3 trips to Mbwa wa Africa and hope to be back again soon. The clinical standards are as high as possible, the charity is undoubtedly improving animal welfare in Tanzania. I’ve worked with some amazing people and made long term friendships. Meru district is a beautiful part of Tanzania and a great place to spend time. I would have no hesitation in recommending volunteering with Mbwa wa Africa.
