Securing safer lives -
helping the free-roaming dogs in Georgia

We provide life-saving care for free-roaming dogs in Georgia, but we can't continue without your help.

This World Animal Day (4 October) we need your help to continue providing life-saving care for the free-roaming dogs of Georgia, within and outside of the capital, Tbilisi.

Securing safer futures, together

As little as £10 provides a dog with life-saving vaccinations against rabies and other common canine diseases.

Mayhew Georgia works to improve the lives of
free-roaming dogs and communities

We fund a Trap, Vaccinate, Neuter, Return (TVNR) programme in Tbilisi, helping to control the free-roaming dog population. The dogs are also vaccinated against rabies and other common canine infectious diseases such as canine parvovirus and distemper, all of which are still common in Georgia. Earlier this year, our TVNR programme was halted during lockdown, leaving large numbers of free-roaming dogs open to and unprotected against unregulated breeding and deadly diseases.

The free-roaming dogs of Georgia

Sadly, the dog breeding season in Georgia coincided with lockdown, which lasted for several weeks. This has had a direct impact on the free-roaming dogs – there has been an influx of puppies born to unneutered mums, spikes in canine diseases have been reported, and more puppies have died this year from preventable diseases such as canine parvovirus.

Free-roaming dogs risk a life subjected to unregulated breeding and poor health and even death from easily preventable infectious diseases, a self-perpetuating cycle that cannot end without easy access to neutering and vaccinations.

In areas outside of Tbilisi, there is little to no veterinary provision, resulting in very limited care available for free-roaming dogs. To tackle this, Mayhew Georgia has been collaborating with mobile vet clinic Doggie Doc, which enables our team to expand our TVNR programme to reach areas where dogs are urgently in need of our preventative veterinary care.

We need your help to provide a safer future for these dogs

This World Animal Day, we’re hoping to raise £5,000 which will ensure that we can continue providing life-saving care for the free-roaming dogs of Georgia, both within and outside of the capital, Tbilisi.

As little as £10 will provide vaccinations against deadly diseases such as rabies and distemper, and just £27.50 will pay for neutering and pre and post operative care, together with life-saving vaccines for one dog; vaccinations that will help protect the local communities too.

Together, we can continue to provide life-saving care for free-roaming dogs in Georgia.

Right now our teams in Georgia are doing everything they can to help the free-roaming dogs, but we receive no government funding for what we do, and the effects of the pandemic have hit us and the dogs of Georgia hard.
