Tomorrow our team leaves for Tanzania. It will take 18 hours in-flight to arrive at Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city, where they will rendezvous with our longtime partners Tanzania Animal Welfare Society (TAWESO). TAWESO is an extraordinary organization driving spay and neuter efforts in remote areas, implementing promising public awareness campaigns, championing humane legislation and saving the lives of homeless, desperate animals daily.
SPCAI executive director, Meredith Ayan, and program manager, Lori Kalef, will make the arduous journey into remote countryside of Tanzania to work with TAWESO on critical, groundbreaking outreach projects. They will be reporting from the field about animals in need and lives saved. Find Out More
Final Update: Mission Almost-Impossible
Over the last few months we have been tirelessly working on our almost impossible OBP: Worldwide mission. In the end, 20 dogs and 1 cat required transport out of war torn Baghdad for Americans serving there. We faced many challenges from climate to disgruntled authorities, but we never gave up. These animals have seen it all - and today, thanks to the unwavering support of our donors, that includes their new homes in America. Learn More and See the Photos
Shelter Support Fund: Lending a Hand
There are shelters all over the world that are in need of a myriad of items from a reliable means of transportation for the animals they rescue to additional kennels for the hundreds of animals in their care. We have had the honor to give grants to shelters and rescue organizations through our Shelter Support Fund to help them manage these costs. Learn About Recent Grants
Hey, Did You Know?
The wildebeest is a member of the antelope family. Every year wildebeest move in what is called "The Great Migration" through Kenya and Tanzania. It is an incredible sight to behold, but declining populations of wildebeest are worrying everyone from governments to the tourism industry. The white-bearded wildebeest, found across Kenya and Tanzania is facing large declines. You can help protect African wildlife, like the wildebeest, with simple daily choices like committing to a vegetarian diet one day a week. (One day a week vegetarian? I can do that!)
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
