Asociación de AKI con Sauvons nos Animaux

¡Sauvons nos Animaux es nuestra organización asociada más nueva, agregada a partir del 1 de enero de 2022! Después de recibir una subvención de la Organización de Bienestar Animal con sede en África de AKI en 2020 y una segunda en 2021, decidimos agregar a SnA como socio.

Es realmente difícil rescatar perros y gatos y administrar un refugio de animales en el este de la RDC: la región es muy pobre, está plagada de conflictos y los desastres naturales (terremotos, inundaciones) son comunes. Pero Paterne Bushunju, fundador y director de SnA (foto a la derecha en el refugio de SnA), está decidido a asegurarse de que "sus" gatos y perros reciban el nivel de atención que recibirían si fueran las mascotas de alguien. Y esperamos ayudarlo a lograrlo.

Animal Kind International in Zimbabwe gives food for hungry dogs.

The additional food is especially important for these most vulnerable dogs and ensures they will have nutritious food to last until the next Doggy Tuesday. Goromonzi is primarily rural, with five villages in the immediate vicinity of the sanctuary. The local people are mostly unemployed or under employed with no formal means of income.

Doggy Tuesday

Twala Trust's Doggy Tuesday program takes place every Tuesday at the main gate of their sanctuary, where they set up a temporary shelter for vet checks, and staff and volunteers stand ready with 1,000 liters of food that they've cooked for the dogs, plus supplementary dog biscuits and dog meal (dry dog food) bagged for take home. Twala Trust teams man stations where they assist with flea and tick treatments in a dip bath, administer deworming tablets (given monthly), and fill up water bowls. There's also a library area for children to use while they wait for their dogs to be checked by the vet.

 

On Doggy Tuesday, dogs receive vaccinations against rabies (annual), and if funds allow, against distemper and parvovirus. Veterinary care is provided for illnesses and injuries, no matter what treatment is required, including major surgical procedures when necessary. Since Doggy Tuesday operates on Twala's sanctuary grounds, they can keep dogs at their on-site clinic if they need more complex or longer-term care. On average, Twala sterilizes 6 dogs a week, free of charge.

 

In the 9 years that Doggy Tuesday has been operating, the Twala Trust staff and volunteers have never missed a Doggy Tuesday! Even during COVID-19, they were given special permission to continue to operate as a "vital service to the community."

Las imágenes a la derecha muestran las dos subvenciones de la Organización de Bienestar Animal con sede en África que recibió SnA:

 

En 2021, SnA recibió una subvención de AKI para contratar a un veterinario y un asistente veterinario para esterilizar y castrar a todas las mascotas del refugio y para brindar otros cuidados veterinarios necesarios.

 

Después del primer par de meses, las cirugías se detuvieron porque había una "hambruna" en el refugio.

 

Las donaciones bajaron, los precios subieron, SnA estaba teniendo problemas para recaudar el dinero que necesitaban para comprar comida para alimentar a los perros y gatos.  Los donantes de AKI y otros acudieron en su rescate y recaudaron dinero para comida para gatos y perros para que los animales del refugio pudieran recuperar su fuerza y las cirugías pudieran continuar.

 

En 2020, con la subvención de AKI, SnA construyó una instalación de cuarentena y un corral para perros para albergar a unos 25 perros en el refugio. 

The Waggley Tail Club


Among the 400 residents at Twala Trust's sanctuary are over 70 elderly and disabled rural dogs, all of whom have been abandoned or surrendered due to old age, poor health, animal abuse situations, or dire circumstances experienced by their owners. This group is Twala Trust's Waggley Tail Club. The Trust provides lifelong care in a kennel-free environment for the dogs in the Waggley Tail Club.

Waggley Tail Club dogs live out their lives at the Twala Trust sanctuary with their physical and emotional needs met by experienced and dedicated staff and volunteers. While Twala does not aim to rehome these dogs, they may be placed in homes under strict criteria, including home checks and lifelong veterinary support through the Trust's Forever Foster program.
