Animal-Kind International Covid 19 Emergency Fund

We have yet more good news! Thanks to Animal-Kind International‘s emergency Covid funding, and various partners, we have been able to help a number of sick dogs across Namibia recently. All are or will, when healthy enough, receive their all important sterilisation and vaccination.

In Reoboth Bella and Snowy’s concerned owner needed help for his two sick dogs. We were able to team up with the awesome C.A.P.U. who organised transport to the vets in Windhoek to get the dogs the medical attention they so badly needed. Currently the dogs are awaiting their sterilisation which will happen as soon as the vets receive suture material.

In Swakopmund, Spikey, was brought to the Swakop Vet Clinic with a badly broken leg, which was mended and at the moment Spikey is recovering well. Thank you to Tierschutzverein Swakopmund (SPCA) and Swakop Vet Clinic for helping super cute Spikey.

Ou Spikes from Kalkand had a painful molar abscess removed by the Mobile Animal Clinic – Namibia, whilst Teddy from Groot Aub had his eye removed by the Mobile Animal Clinic after he sustained a nasty injury.

As always a massive thank you to Animal-Kind International and their supporters for funding these massively important cases, without this funding many of these animals would not be able to get the medical attention they need!

What a great day in Swakopmund!

A grand total of 17 dogs and 4 cats became the newest members of the Have-a-Heart family after receiving their sterilisation, vaccinations and parasite control treatments.

A massive thanks goes to Dr Winterbach, Nurse Sheelagh and the team from Swakop Vet Clinic, Madelaine Strydom and the Feed a Paw Project and every single person supporting us.

Another happy update for you! Recently Have-a-Heart has been busy, busy, busy! Two less fortunate cats became the newest Have-A-Heart Tsumeb family members thanks to Dr Erika and the team at Tsumeb Veterinary Clinic. Nine cats were sterilised and vaccinated in Okahandja and 18 cats sterilised and vaccinated from the Prison College feral colony in Omaruru. Plus, two injured dogs were brought to Swakop Vet Clinic by the awesome Feed a Paw Project and were also given the Have-a-Heart full service.

Thank you to everyone supporting us during this challenging time, we appreciate it massively.
