Wheelchair for a puppy

Clients who have recently visited us might have seen that cute puppy in the front office. It is paralized (due to "self-vaccination" into the spinal cord in the former home?!?) and cannot move the hind legs.

We tried to get it walking again and were hopeful due to the young age. But it's time to accept that the nerves won't grow back and try new ways. We came up with the idea of building a dog-wheelchair. Very common in the US, new to Kenya.

What we are still looking for are wheels. Anyone has a pair of old stroller wheels or some from those kid's cars/toys? They shouldn't be too big - it's still a puppy :) About 10 to 20cm diameter. Bigger might also be useful in the future.

The status quo is unacceptable though it doesn't feel pain it pulls the legs and gets wound easily. Locking it in a cage is not an option either. Help us, donate two wheels and give this puppy a chance!

Happy Easter everyone and please don't vaccinate your animals on your own.

Dental Care in Dogs

Your pet's dental health is very important contributor to general well being. You can fight bad breath, inappetance, add your pet’s life span, and protect your loved ones from infectious diseases spread through saliva, licking and bites. Visit your vet and demand your pets dental status examined today. Prevention is better than cure.

Social Responsibility

Our institution volunteered to work closely with Gibson school fraternity. Gibson school is a passionate school for people with special needs, in line with the schools' policy and curriculum, there was need to teach these students hands on animal welfare. The students really enjoy these classes. They have so far learnt general needs of animals, grooming, feeding, care and the role of human in animal suffering.
