AfriPaw Animal Welfare
Cape Town, South Africa
AfriPaw offers a monthly pet clinic and runs large neutering
campaigns in Cape Town. These initiatives give pet owners the
chance to become more responsible for their animals, free of
charge. South Africa is badly affected by poverty, and even
though owners love their cats and dogs, they rely heavily on the
AfriPaw services to neuter and vaccinate their pets.
Our donation of €22,485 will cover the cost of the campaigns and pet clinic days for 1 year - helping up to 7,000 animals.
Animal Welfare Society (AWS)
Stellenbosch, South Africa
AWS runs a veterinarian surgery and organises weekly healthcare
outreach clinics to communities in Stellenbosch. Their work is
extremely valuable for both stray cats and dogs, and pet owners
who rely heavily on the projects AWS runs.
We are pledging €42,670 to neuter, de-worm, and de-flea 1,500 animals - that's 70% of the animal population in one of the communities in Stellenbosch.
Cluny Animal Trust

Dog Care Clinic
There are about 3 million street dogs in Sri Lanka, most of whom
end up there because of disease, vehicle accidents and/or
cruelty. We couldn't believe that statistic when we heard it! We
are proud to work with The Dog Care Clinic to try and end the

Humane Society International
Bolivia & Chile
We select projects that focus on sustainable solutions that
create lasting change. Humane Society International's (HSI)
projects in Bolivia and Chile are doing just that! Our donation
will go towards training veterinary professionals so they can
offer safe, affordable treatments including vaccinations and
neutering for thousands of dogs and cats. This will help prevent
suffering and tackle systemic overpopulation in communities
across Bolvia & Chile.
Our donation will pay to train for over 100 vets in safe, effective veterinery care and cover the direct costs of 17,000 treatments in the first two years. By year 5, the vets trained by HSI will be able to complete at least 40,000 treatments, helping improvement lives of thousands of dogs and cats across the region and tackle overpopulation.
Lanta Animal Welfare
Koh Lanta, Thailand
Lanta Animal Welfare runs an animal shelter, outreach program,
and clinic out of Koh Lanta, Thailand. Within this area, the
number of dogs and cats that are neutered has increased by 50%,
so their work is already paying off. But they need support to
keep it running.
A donation of €15,000 will be made to replace their van, which is crucial for the outreach program. Without the van, they're unable to reach all the animals on the islands and the mainland. They desperately need to target the whole stray situation to have maximum impact and encourage a healthy population of cats and dogs.
We are proud to support Mayhew International in their amazing
work to protect dogs in Kabul, Afghanistan from rabies
infection. This incredible project is run by a local team of
specialists, who are also working to improve the long-term
relationship between dogs and humans in the community.
Our donation will pay for 30,000 vaccinations – enough to vaccinate over 80% of the local dog population and create effective herd immunity against this dangerous disease. We’re also supporting Mayhew’s innovative community outreach programme. Find out more on our project page.
With our second commitment to Mayhew International, we’ll be
helping more dogs, cats, and communities - this time in Georgia.
We’re all set to help 2,500 dogs and 250 cats in the first year
alone. Our donation will pay for the training of 22 vets in cat
and dog health; the construction of a static clinic (plus all
equipment) to serve as a training base; and a fully-equipped
People For Animals
It’s estimated that there are over 35 million stray dogs and 35
million stray cats in India. With extremely poor living
conditions, they’re vulnerable to many diseases, including
rabies. Without the help of local organisations, ‘capture and
kill’ is a commonly-adopted approach - even though it’s been
prohibited since ’94.
PFA Dehradun has developed a sustainable approach to improve the welfare of pets and stray cats and dogs.
People For Animals (PFA), Dehradun is part of the larger People For Animals network and has developed a sustainable way to minimise the huge number of stray cats and dogs.

training program for vets; and outreach programs offering free
or discounted services to the community strays.
It's estimated that Cambodia has over 5m strays, with practically no vets working there. PPAWS hopes that with their training and the volunteers that help, they'll become an example for the rest of the country. We'll donate €9,800 for urgent kennel adaptations that'll ensure faster recovery for inpatients. As well as €16,677 to neuter and vaccinate 600 animals brought into the shelter.
