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.

Another of our cute outreach patients!

Foxy wasn't eating since 5 days and already quite weak when he reached our gate. He couldn't get up, had bloody diarrhea, infected eyes and hypothermia.
Luckily his condition improved tremendously after two days of resting in our warm, cosy office and some chicken soup πŸ˜‰
He obviously 'just' had a cold, but nevertheless, without some care it would have killed him. His owners love him, but they didn't know better...

Another big issue we see way too often right now is dogs coming down with aflotoxin poisoning. Simply said, alfotoxin is a fungus growing on moldy groceries. It it very toxic on the liver and can kill your dog (dogs are very sensitive to it) within a day or two. Maize (ugali), rice, dagaa, groundnuts and many other food which is badly stored are the main source of it. First symptoms are that your dog don't want to eat anymore, in an advanced state they can't get up anymore, the gums and he skin will turn yellow.

Please keep your animals warm and dry and well nourished at all times, but especially in this uncomfortable rainy season!
It doesn't take much to keep them healthy and happy!

Thank you!

Celebration! πŸ₯³πŸ€©πŸ˜Ž

Safi's puppies turned to be 2 weeks old last Monday and they are doing so incredibly well! πŸ™‚
But no wonder with this fantastic mother! She is honestly one of the sweetest and gentlest dogs we ever had the pleasure to meet!

Enif, Nash, Vega and Lucaina (named after stars) already opened their eyes, start walking around on stumpy little legs and practicing the cutest barks!
But we can't help but wonder who the father might be?! Safi weights only 10 kg and hertwo weeks old pups have already 700 gramms... For everybody who never raised a puppy, that's enormous for a small mother dog like Safi!

Everybody who wants to support the upbringing of our star puppies, or give one of them or Safi a loving home in two month time is welcome to contact us! πŸ™‚

And another wonderful adoption! πŸ™‚

Finally our very bonded siblings Mela and Max found a loving home together!
They came to us as tiny puppies after they have been abandoned at Manyara viewpoint and friends of us witnessed when Mela was run over by a car... Luckily she wasn't hurt badly and the two grew up into very friendly, sweet tempered dogs.

Jane and her family didn't need much time to decide that these two would be the perfect addition to them and a few days later we got this massage:
"We couldn't be more happy!"

Thank you for @adoptdontshop you truly saved two amazing little dogs!

Jessica was a straycat, living in fear of humans and hiding away from them all her life.
Until Pippa noticed her in her neighborhood and made it her mission to show her love and that not all people are evil.

They came a long way together and Jessica started to play and cuddle with Pippa, but because of Corona, Pippa had to leave and full of worries she left her street cat behind.
She reached out to us and we promised to help if we can, sadly it took weeks after Jessica was found and could be catched with the help of Pippa's friend Elly.
And - in the meantime Jessica had given birth to 3 beautiful kittens!
They have spent the first month of their lives without any human interaction and just like their mother, weren't trusting us, but, well, they are kittens and curiosity won πŸ˜‰
They already play with us and let us stroke and tickle them!

So this super cute and playful little guys are looking for a place to call home with people who will give them some time. before they come out off their shell - do you have such a place for them?
