Aspiring artists at our Okahandja spay days with their “Be like a tree” colourings! These sheets are produced by Global Alliance for Rabies Controland educate children about how to act safely around strange or aggressive dogs.
Being able to use the Mobile Animal Clinic of Baines VetCare CC for spay days has so many advantages. For example, because we can work directly in the townships, owners can be with their pet to comfort them during wake up, helping to keep the animal calm.
We thank Baines VetCare CC for always being available for spay days!!
We are getting ready to hit the road again! From 19th – 30th July the Mobile Animal Clinic will in Karibib, Usakos, Uis and Henties Bay providing sterilisation services to dogs and cats in low and no income communities! We would love to help lots of dogs and cats on this trip – anyone wanting to support us is welcome to make a donation using the bank details pinned to the top of our page.
Beautiful blind Wagter was one of the lucky dogs to get a neuter, vaccination and parasite control treatment through donations from Animal-Kind International. Intact male dogs are often victims of road traffic accidents when chasing females in heat around. Being blind, this was even more of a risk for Wagter – so we are especially happy he got the all important neuter operation!
Canine distemper is a life-threatening disease which can be transmitted from dogs to wildlife species such as jackal, bat-eared fox and African wild dog. Every animal sterilised by Have-a-Heart Mobile also receives full vaccinations which will stops such diseases spreading to local wildlife populations.
This weekend we held the first ever spay days in Okahandja’s Fyf Rand Kamp, and they will not be the last! As usual we were overrun and overwhelmed by the many, many caring owners who wanted their pet sterilising, and we were able to sterilise and vaccinate 63 dogs and 5 cats.
We are thankful for the Mobile Animal Clinic of Baines VetCare CC for being available this weekend and everyone who volunteered their time to make the spay days happen. We also thank all of our supporters who make it possible for us to provide our services in these communities who are so desperately in need.
This weekend we will be holding the first ever spay days in Okahandja! We are sure there is a massive need for our services there; 24,000 people are living in the Nau-Aib township, and another 5,000 people are living in the Five Dollar (Rand) Camp.
Sterilisation and vaccination services will be provided to dogs and cats from no and low income families only – this is classed as N$2,000 and less per month.
This is White Feet – one of the dogs we were able to help in the remote township of Witvlei. White Feet’s owner patiently waited for four hours to make sure his dog got the all important neuter, sterilisation and parasite control treatment and waited by his side whilst he woke up in the recovery area. In each and every township we see a lot of love and dedication from pet owners and we are committed to giving them the little bit of help they need to have happy and healthy pets.
The final spay day from our northern trip is finished – 167 dogs and cats were sterilised and vaccinated in six days. We thank everyone who came together to make this possible; HaveaHeart Rundu, Baines Vetcare CC – Mobile Animal Clinic, Have-a-Heart Mobile, Animal-Kind International, the Lafrenz Trust and everyone who made a donation for this trip
