Adopt

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.

Sponsor

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.

Volunteer

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.

Although our shelter is fully occupied with rescues, we had some newcomers in the last weeks.
Most of them must put up with living in the store, but highly pregnant Sonica needed her own peaceful space, so we had to move Safi and Vivo around.

Sonica comes from a family. She is a very friendly dog, but her instincts made her hunt and kill the neighbour’s chicken and he wanted to poison her. Don’t get us wrong, we love chickens (alive). But a dog is a hunter and ‘rewarding’ a natural behaviour with a gruesome death is just wrong. Sadly, however, it is a very common practice here.

So, this beauty moved in and we are awaiting her puppies any minute 😊
We will let you know of course as soon as they will be born!

Attention, Attention!!!!

This is something vey close to our hearts <3
Please if you happen to be in Dar, or if you love dogs and are ready to travel to see this fabulous exhibition, or if you are ‘just’ interested in awesome photography…. Please support this amazing woman and her project! 😊

“The wait is finally over!!
Almost 4 years ago, I started a personal photography project when I moved to Tanzania. I worked closely with one of the original founders of Film Shooters Collective in a mentoring program and some of the most respected and generous people and organisations in both Dar es Salaam and Arusha.
Focusing on empathy between humans and animals, I documented various interactions between kids and animals and witnessed the growth and wider understanding it nurtured throughout the duration of the project.
Four years on, I am now holding an Exhibition to showcase what I documented and there will also be an Auction to raise money for the Charities that were so willing and keen to work with me as a way to give back.
If you are free on August 15th, please come along to the opening night with open hearts and your generosity, and let yourself be moved by how enthusiastically the kids took on the challenge of being close to, and interacting with animals they were so clearly initially afraid of.
Opening at 4pm, with a welcome glass of bubbly, come and take a stroll through the leafy green gardens of Fig Tree Residences and view the project in its finality.
Please share with as many people as possible! 🙏🏻 Asante sana.”
