Our busy daily Walk-In Clinic is open for emergencies and minor injuries; vaccinations can be given immediately and sterilisations and other operations booked. Information and advice is always available from our Veterinary Doctors and their Assistants. You can also call us to book an appointment for your pet to be sterilised.

We have a well-stocked shop, full of good things to make life easier for you and your pet.

If you are interested in adopting a puppy or an older dog, we always have beautiful, funny, lively ones at the Centre. Please come and talk to us about the kind of pet you would like and we will do our best to meet your needs.

If you are looking for someone to care for your pets while you are away, look no further. Our popular Boarding Kennels, with secure individual units, will welcome and take care of them. They will have loving care and attention, in a busy, animal-centred environment. Call us to book an appointment.

From our Animal Care Centre we run weekly Anti-Rabies camps, in almost 40 villages, Pet Adoption camps, as well as our Schools Education Programme. Every week we take our Mobile Veterinary Clinic out into rural communities.

Since 2003 we have vaccinated more than 35,000 animals against rabies.


We have sterilised almost 12,000 dogs and cats since 2003 (when we began to keep records).


The quick, pain-free way to give us much-needed support. You don’t even have to leave the house to get involved, and it costs you nothing!
