Adopt a dog in Tanzania

Adoptions are essential for the shelter. Therefore if we cannot find homes for the animals we have, we cannot take more in off the streets.

Stray dogs and cats are not second class animals, they’ve simply experienced more life than others. Hence by adopting one of our shelter animals you help support homeless animals and help us in our goal of giving these deserving creatures a good life.

There are so many unwanted stray dogs and cats which are so thankful to be rescued and who will reward you with friendship and companionship for the rest of their lives.

These Dogs Are Waiting For A Forever Home

Give An Adult Dog A Home

Older dogs are calmer and less energetic than younger dogs.
An adult dog has graduated from the puppy stage and has an established demeanour and temperament, which will give you an instant idea of how it will fit into your household.

You can teach an old dog new tricks.
Dogs can be trained at any age and older dogs are just as smart as younger ones. Older dogs have a greater attention span than a puppy, which make them easier to train.

Take Home A Young Dog

Young dogs or puppies are cute but also more work. Remember that you still need to spend plenty of time training them.

Take Home An Adult Cat

The personality of an older cat is already known – making it easier to match you with the right cat!

Older Cats are generally less demanding than youngsters, and need less supervision, so if you work outside the home, an adult cat is much better able to content itself while you are out than a youngster.

Most older cats are seeking little more than a warm lap, regular food and love!

Take Home A Young Cat

Some cats will need time to settle. It is best to start them off in one room (preferably in the room that you intend to keep the litter tray to avoid confusion). You can then gradually introduce them to more of the house as they become comfortable with the room they are in. Allow them to sniff around and try to keep everything calm and quiet. A quiet area where the cat is able to hide and be left alone is very important.
