If you see a dog with a V cut into one ear you know it has been sterilised by us.



Volunteer to work with us at our Centre or Anti-Rabies Camps for a few hours each week.




We are active participants in the government-sponsored Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme and since 2003 (when we began keeping records) we have sterilised more than 12,000 dogs, the majority of them strays, effectively reducing the stray animal population. As well as sterilising them, we give them an anti-rabies vaccination, de-worm them and give them vitamin shots so that they are healthy and happy when leaving the Centre to re-join their pack.

One of our most robust programmes is our Anti-Rabies Camps. Every Sunday morning, outside a local Church, between September and April our team of Vets, Vet Assistants and volunteers arrive around 8.30 to set up that day’s camp.

We now visit almost 40 villages. In the 2011-2012 Season we vaccinated almost 6,000 pets and strays, providing vital protection not just for them but also for their families and communities.

The large cage holding puppies for adoption creates huge excitement. For us, there is nothing nicer than watching a puppy or kitten meet their new family for the first time, and be taken off to start a new life.

When you visit the Clinic you can book an appointment to
have your pet sterilised.

Each week we take our hugely popular Mobile Veterinary Clinic out to rural and coastal communities to support local people looking for good care, support and advice for their pets. We also carry out pre-booked sterilisation operations, emergency treatments and vaccinations.

Schools Education Programme Staff visit schools to raises awareness of wildlife issues, animal welfare and safety and offer advice and information to young people who may have pets now or in the future. We bring along competitions, prizes and some small animals. If you are interested in a visit from us please contact us for further details.



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!
