It’s Raining Cats and Dogs…

When you wait ages for a bus, then suddenly three arrive. This is exactly what TNR Trust has been experiencing, except a whole matatu fleet of cats and dogs seemed to have arrived at our doorstep at the same time!

Amy Rapp, the TNR “Captain”, can give you a better idea of what TNR Trust is facing at the moment by what she posted yesterday:

My phone went non stop all day today: pregnant cats needing a home to give birth, a dog hit by a car needing a medical foster, people wanting to collect loaner cat traps, 4 dogs right the opposite side of town at a construction site needing to be collected for vaccination and spay/neuter, …

Where will we put all these animals and how will we fund it?? I am now going to bed with a book to hopefully shut off my brain about animals for few hours.”

So what is it exactly that we do? TNR TRUST has 3 main pillars: vaccination, sterilization and education. With these 3 pillars, we want to improve Community Health by making sure the dog and cat populations are under control (in a humane way) and healthy. This also reduces the risk of people getting dog bites.

TNR TRUST also goes out on call when we receive a phone call from a member of the public. Note that we are in a better position to provide help if the caller can also help. Help can be given in various ways:

  • A donation towards the costs of negotiated vet care (Click HERE to donate)
  • Help with trapping
  • Transporting the animal
  • Vet visits
  • Fostering
  • Returning the animal (if possible) to where it was found (As per our Trap Neuter and Release (TNR) strategy)

  1. Hello. I am a student on attachment in Kajiadobut I am a great lover of dogs and cats (we have two dogs and two cats at our home in Kilifi). I’ve been interested in having a pet for my apartment, but since I can’t afford to adopt one at the moment, I was wondering if I was a suitable candidate for fostering. I was also wondering if you guys have a dog suitable for guarding, like a dog who’ll be friendly only to my family and not so friendly to strangers. Your response will be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi Barbara,
      Thank you for your interest!

      Most Kenyan Shepherds are born guard dogs: affectionate yet still vigilant when it comes to guarding their home. You can find the dogs we have up for adoption on this link: . Otherwise, KSPCA has a big variety of dogs available at the moment.

      If you are considering becoming a foster, kindly click on this link: . You will find flyers at this link regarding the TNR Fostering Program and the paperwork you will need to fill in.
