Rescue, Rehab & Re-home Street Dogs in Africa

it is estimated by the WHO that there are over 200 million stray dogs in the world with 70 million in Africa alone! It is a huge concern and these poor animals are left on the streets to defend for themselves or have a family that can't look after them. We need to take action today

Situation

There are many reasons a dog ends up on the street. It can be neglected and thrown out from a family that wanted a dog that would fight and protect them, it could be the family simply can't afford the puppy or it might be born on the street. The numbers of street dogs is in the rise and we want to tackle the issue right now.

Solution

Step 1. Rescue, Rehab and Re-home, we currently rescue 60 dogs a day and we work with vet's and local authorities to ensure we provide a full rehabilitation plan for the dog before we re-home them with an adopted family. Step 2 - Awareness, it is our mission to run outreach programs within the community and talk to people to try and educate and stop the issue from the roots.
