We also provide capacity building for the local veterinary profession through access to training and work to change people’s behaviours and attitudes towards animals.

To control, contain and reduce free-roaming dog and cat populations in a humane way

To work towards eradicating rabies and other zoonotic diseases that are spread between humans and animals

Our projects

Population management

We work to provide sustainable solutions to contain and control free-roaming dog and cat populations in a humane way.

Disease control

We work to protect lives, both animal and human, through the promotion and delivery of vaccination programmes for dogs with the aim of eradicating canine-mediated rabies and the most common infectious diseases in dogs.

Vet training

We offer veterinary training for vets and other veterinary professionals in small animal reproductive surgery, pre and post-operative care, shelter medicine and animal care and welfare.

Empowering local communities

We are helping to create safer communities for both animals and people.
