HELP US GIVE HOPE TO AFRICAN STREET DOGS
Throughout the content of Africa there are estimated to be over 70 million dogs living on the streets. Over 2 million of these dogs live in Tanzania and struggle to find food, water, and shelter; they are plagued with preventable disease – often covered in mange and infested with fleas. Many of these dogs also carry and transmit rabies, with an estimated 25,000 humans dying every year in Africa from the disease. Without intervention these dogs will continue to breed and the problems will continue to grow. But we can help.
Sponsor a Spay
When you sponsor a spay for an African street dog you not only prevent pregnancy and the cycle of neglect you also provide life saving vaccines to stop the spread of preventable illness.
Sponsor a Neuter
When you sponsor a neuter for an African street dog you not only prevent pregnancy and the cycle of neglect you also provide life saving vaccines to stop the spread of preventable illness.
Sponsor a Dog
Sponsor an individual animal at our partner sanctuary in Tanzania on an ongoing monthly basis and give them a safe forever home away from the street with food, shelter, veterinary care, and lots of love.
Sponsor a Spay, Neuter, and Vaccination Clinic
In Mwanza’s city of nearly 2 million there is little to no local support for the street dogs. Africa Street Dog Rescue looks to change that. Our goal is to eventually host weekly clinics throughout the city, paying local vets to spay, neuter, and vaccinate as many local street dogs as we can. Our first clinic succeeded in fixing 37 local dogs. Over the next several years, that means hundreds of puppies will not be born into a life of disease and suffering. In Tanzania, a little goes a long way! A gift of $500 will spay, neuter, and vaccinate 35 street dogs. Your gift will also support local vets who have difficulty finding employment in a city where there is little financial support for the incredible work they do. Please consider supporting a spay, neuter, and vaccination clinic!
Give the Gift of Sanctuary
We have land that has been donated, plans that have been drawn up, and we are ready to build! For just $8000 you can help us build the first ever street dog sanctuary in Mwanza, Tanzania! Currently, our staff and volunteers are forced to drive by malnourished, sick dogs in desperate need of medical attention. We just do not have the space or resources to house all of these dogs. Our volunteer’s homes and kennels are already filled. Our dream is to build a sanctuary space that would allow us to stop and pick these animals up off the streets – giving them the food, shelter, and veterinary care they so desperately need. Your gift includes naming rights to the sanctuary and a personalized dedication plack hung at the sanctuary. Please consider making that dream come true for the street dogs of Africa!
