Africa Network for Animal Welfare


Animal Rescue Organisation: Unable to load page..

The ARO hospital has the capacity to take in up to 60 dogs and in the region of 20 cats for a short stay welfare hospital treatment such as neutering or an orthopaedic procedure, but is not an adoption shelter and as such concentrates instead on the welfare treatment of sick and suffering animals from the most indigent areas of the Cape SA.

Maun Animal Welfare Society:

Provide free veterinary services to low-income villagers across Botswana. They have neutered and vaccinated tens of thousands of dogs to reduce breeding and disease, and fitted reflective ear tags to thousands of donkeys to prevent night-time traffic accidents. They also reunite, re-home, and rehabilitate lost, found, and stray animals, and provide emergency veterinary treatment.

Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust:

The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust (GHDT) is a small charity, registered in both the UK and The Gambia. With no tradition of horsemanship in The Gambia and a combination of poor management, high disease risk and poverty, farmers were investing comparatively large amounts of money for a working animal only for it to die, too often within six months. The aim of the GHDT is to reduce rural poverty in The Gambia through improving the health, welfare and productivity of working animals.

C.A.R.E (The Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education):

C.A.R.E., located in the heart of a "Big 5 Nature Reserve"  bordering the Kruger National Park South Africa, is a wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary dedicated to the care, welfare, rehabilitation and protection of injured and orphaned indigenous wild animals.  This organisation is well known for their vital, life-saving and pioneering work with wildlife.

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust:

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.

International Primate Rescue:

This sanctuary in South Africa cares for over 100 primates, including Marmosets, Tamarins, Capuchins, Macaques, Squirrel Monkeys, Mona Monkeys, Patas Monkeys and Grey Mouse Lemurs. Many are hand reared ex-pets who arrive with behavioural problems and require rehabilitation from psychological disorders. This sanctuary accommodates exotic primates, who are unable to be returned to the wild, and therefore their time and focus is aimed at ensuring all enclosures are as suitable and comfortable for each individual as possible.
