Why do we do what we do?

Why is spay and neuter so important for dogs and cats living in Namibia’s rural communities?

This is a question we are often asked. It is estimated that less than 30 % of Namibia’s population has direct access to veterinary services. This ultimately leads to increasing populations of stray animals when uncontrolled and largely unwanted breeding takes place. Stray and unvaccinated animal populations represent a danger to both local human and wildlife communities. At an individual level it can result in female dogs and cats living in an endless cycle of producing and raising offspring, often when there is no owner around to help. Tired, alone and helpless, these animals often live miserable lives. Have-a-Heart Mobile is there to stop the cycle and give these animals a new start in life – one free of puppies and kittens and with the protection from disease given by vaccinations.

Please help us to keep helping.
