Cat Neuter

Sometimes we get asked why do we also help male cats as they can’t get kittens, why not concentrating on females only?

One of the many reasons for us to get as many male cats sterilised as possible is the fact, that un-neutered male cats get in a lot of fights over females in heat. During those fights the cats often get injured badly. The urge to fight over females will be less a few weeks after the neuter operation.

This beautiful boy has been neutered during the last spay days in Keetmanshoop and he wounds heal and he hopefully can have a more peaceful life from now on!

Some more reasons to neuter male cats:
– they get vaccinated against rabies as well
– house cats also mate with the African Wild Cat and due to this, the African Wild Cat population is decreasing
– they mark their territory much less

WORLD ANIMAL DAY

Today we celebrate WORLD ANIMAL DAY with the cutest picture of two happy best friends and good news from Keetmans!

The picture was taken in Keetmanshoop during our last spay days a week ago and we simply love it 

A total of an amazing 55 dogs and 6 cats had their “big make over day” and are now part of the Have a Heart family!

The funds raised during the dog walk held beginning of September helped many dogs and cats during the last spay days and we want say again a big big THANK YOU to everyone who organised, participated and supported Have a Heart during the dog walk!

Also a big Thank You goes again to every single person who donates and supports Have a Heart in Keetmanshoop during the year, to Angie and her team for everything you do in Keetmans and to Dr Baines and his team from the Mobile Animal Clinic – Namibia for all the hard work!

Rabies

Today is the 13th World Rabies Day – the theme is ‘vaccination’. Have-a-Heart is working towards the Global Strategic Plan to end human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030, by vaccinating all dogs and cats we sterilize against rabies. Rabies is one of the oldest and most terrifying diseases known to mankind. Despite being 100% preventable, the disease kills one person every nine minutes of every day

News from Swakopmund

Today beautiful Chloe became the newest member of the Have-a-Heart family in Swakopmund. Her loving owner Maria realises the value of spay, vaccination and parasite control treatment and we were only too happy to help.

Go well Chloe – see you soon for your follow-up appointment
