Yes, people gift pets on Valentine’s Day!

Many people welcome new pets into the household around holidays like Valentine’s Day. Often these pets are surprise gifts, which is something our team does not condone.

Since it happens, www.betterpet.com put together a fantastic guide with useful tips for these new pet owners – pet parenting basics, pet-proofing a home, scheduling a vet visit, budgeting, and what to do if a pet needs to be rehomed.

Lovely news from VetsWeb Mariental again! But first we want to say a big big THANK YOU to Southern Motor Mecca for supporting animal welfare in Mariental by sponsoring the spay/neuter of 10 cats of the trap-neuter-release program currently happening! THANK YOU! HaH could not help any cats or dogs without donations!This is the great message we received: In the last few days (end of last week and so far this week) we have had a very interesting string of black cats “but no bad luck here!” only good luck going around now that these kitties no longer have to suffer litter after litter of unwanted kittens. We have had another 3 females and 3 males. Thank you for allowing us to help change the fate of this feral colony! It is turning out to be a very rewarding process for us.Thank you so much Dr Erna and team for the fantastic work! <3 <3 ...

Today we provide you with the greatest news:We are blessed with an extremely generous donation! Osino Resources Corp. contributed N$ 50,000 towards the spay and neuter of cats and dogs in the Omaruru/Erongo area! With this amount roughly 90 cats and dogs will be able to get their Have a Heart make over. Meaning a prevention of thousands of future kittens and puppies, a healthier community due to important vaccinations and less parasites spread. We are exceedingly grateful and would like to thank Osino Resources from the bottom of our hearts! Your contribution will have a huge impact in both, the lives of the animals and the humans as well as the environment! THANK YOU! ...

A bit of good news to end the working week with. We recently had another successful spay day in Henties Bay where 12 dogs and two cats became the newest members of the Have-a-Heart family, with three 'old customers' coming for their booster vaccinations. With so many animals no longer adding to the overpopulation of puppies and kittens, Henties moved one step closer to reducing its stray animal populations. As always, a massive thanks to those involved and everyone supporting us. ...

Over the years I took thousands of pictures of dogs and cats and people, but this one is still one of my favorites. I took it in 2017 in a small village somewhere in Namibia. The dog - Boeta - is busy waking up after his neuter operation.His owner was a rough man, clearly living a tough life, no wealth in sight, but the love for his dog was endless, he would any time fight for him.My question to everyone who is convinced "poor people should not own animals" - why would you want to take this dog away from this man?Don't you think supporting this man and having his best friend neutered, vaccinated, treated against parasite and - if needed - given basic medical care is showing more compassion towards a caring human trying to survive in a difficult world?Support Have a Heart - support caring people and their pets!#supporthaveaheart #haveaheartnamibia #fortheloveofdogs #spayneuter #spayneuteradopt #namibia #supportdogs #welovedogs #sponsoraspay ...

We promise, we are also busy helping dogs of the less fortunate community in Namibia with spay/neuter, vaccination and parasite control! But at the moment so many owned and homeless (stray and feral) cats are in dire need of spay/neuter and we try hard not to send any away... The two beautiful cats on the picture were dumped a few months ago at a picnic area around 30 kilometers out of Otjiwarongo. Dumping cats is pure cruel and not acceptable. House cats are not equipped to survive on their own, not in towns and not in the wild. When the Have a Heart team in Omaruru heard about the poor cats, Birgit immediately contacted Otjiwarongo SPCA and offered to borrow traps as well as organising the cat's spay/neuter with Dr Estelle in Omaruru. And then all went quick and within 3 days the cats were trapped, operated and they also found a new home! Wow!! <3 Thank you so much Otjiwarongo SPCA for this miracle!We hope from the bottom of our heart that people will stop dumping animals and that hopefully one day, Namibia will not have hundreds of unwanted puppies or kitten born every month. And we can't say it enough: SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR CATS AND DOGS. PLEASE! ...

Have-a-Heart Namibia
Big plans for Mariental! A dedicated team is busy trapping cats of a (looked after) feral colony consisting of an estimated 50(!!) cats! Dr Erna and her team from VetsWeb Mariental are operating two cats per day and last week the first 10 cats have been operated, checked and vaccinated! <3 7 of the 10 cats are female. If those 7 cats would not have been spayed, just until August this year, another 28 kittens would have been added to the colony!! That's how quick a single pair of unaltered cats can bring the number of cats within a year into astronomical numbers!50 cats to spay or neuter will impact our funds quite a bit and we must not stop before the very last cat is castrated. In case you would like to support the cats in Mariental (or cats or dogs in other towns), this is the account: Account Name: Have a Heart NamibiaBank: Bank WindhoekAcc No: 2000 266 940VIELEN DANK!!!#haveaheartnamibia #spayneuter #tnrworks #catsarebest #support #mariental #namibia #catsarefriends ...
