Mayhew International works to promote companion animal welfare and the humane management of street animal populations and homeless cats and dogs through a range of community animal care initiatives and access to veterinary training. Our work with vets interested in this area of animal welfare has a special significance for international development, benefiting and empowering communities in developing countries, many of whom rely on their animals for support.
- We advocate neutering as the most humane method of dealing with the overpopulation of companion animals.
- We offer information and advice on the setting up and running of neutering and vaccination programmes.
- We collaborate with other animal welfare organisations, local groups and university veterinary faculties to provide a high standard of animal health and welfare for street and stray animals.
- We work with governments and local authorities in an advisory capacity to improve the health and welfare conditions of companion animals under their jurisdiction.
- We offer training for overseas veterinary personnel and animal welfare organisations.
Our work stretches to places as far afield as Russia, Afghanistan, India and Peru.
Struggling to Survive
Sani was found on the streets of India, severely emaciated and covered in mange but still desperately trying to care for her three young pups.
Sani was one of the lucky ones. Her infected skin was treated and, once the pups were weaned, she was neutered and vaccinated thanks to a Mayhew International sponsored vet working for a local welfare group.
Mayhew International helps to fund animal birth control projects and treats thousands of innocent animals around the globe. You could help us do so much more by making a one-off donation or setting up a small, regular payment.
