Out on Call in Westlands, Nairobi: TNR Trust Nairobi and KSPCA Collaboration

On 20th November 2017, TNR Trust Nairobi went to Mvuli Road (Westlands, Nairobi, KENYA) with KSPCA to pick a dog whom we had seen with a car accident injury some weeks ago. A few street guys claimed that they owned the dog.

We ended up picking 3 dogs:

  • 1 brown dog being very sick and thin
  • 1 black dog with mange. This was the injured dog, but the injury not serious anymore
  • the 3rd dog we picked up to vaccinate and spay.

The dogs are currently at the vet’s to be examined, given medication and some TLC.

TNR Trust Nairobi has assured the owners of the dogs that the dogs will be dropped back once the dogs have recovered.

World Animal Protection: #BetterLivesForDogs

On 26th of June 2017, TNR Trust Nairobi joined the round table initiated by World Animal Protection. The discussion centered on responsible dog ownership. It was interesting, informative and really nice to be in the company of committed animal lovers. 

Better lives for dogs

World Animal Protection move governments and communities worldwide to create better lives for dogs by ending poor treatment and brutal inhumane culling practices. Humane alternatives to culling don’t only exist – they’re more effective.

Why are dogs culled?

Dogs roam the streets in many parts of the world. But sometimes they may cause concern in the communities where they live.

Roaming dogs may pose a threat to public health by spreading rabies or other diseases, they may cause damage to livestock and wildlife, or they may behave aggressively towards people.

As a result, dogs can become victims of poor treatment, cruelty, and even inhumane culling by governments in a misguided attempt to reduce their numbers. Dragged through the streets, electrocuted, poisoned or gassed – culling is nearly always a horrendous and painful death.

World Animal Protection’s solution

Inhumanely culling dogs is never an answer. The misconception that culling is the best way to reduce dog populations or stamp out threats to public health causes enormous suffering. It’s ineffective too, as evidence shows that culling doesn’t reduce numbers of dogs in the long term.

World Animal Protection works with governments and communities around the world to show them that WAP’s proven methods of humane dog population management are the only way forward.

World Animal Protection follows the International Companion Animal Management (ICAM) coalition’s dog population management methodology. It’s a full cycle of action, addressing the root causes of conflict between roaming dog and communities. World Animal Protection uses it to help governments manage dogs humanely and to help communities to live in harmony with dogs.

The solutions World Animal Protection reaches together can involve educating owners and communities, legislation, dog registration, vaccinating against rabies, sterilisation, rehoming – or a combination of some or all of these.

World Animal Protection helps governments to monitor and evaluate progress too, ensuring we create humane change that lasts.

Together, we can move the world to achieve better lives for dogs.

I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED! Mister King

20170512 King.jpg

At the end of April 2017, King came to our care. He was about 18 months old and had been hanging around a school in Nairobi for a few days.

King was full of ticks, fleas, very thin but super friendly. We took him to see a vet to get him looked at and in the meantime TNR Trust Nairobi was able to organize a temporary foster home.

Fortunately a Kenyan lady wanted a meet and greet with Mister King, who charmed her by his friendliness and high affection levels.

Happiness is something that wags its tail and can say Woof. Congratulations to King’s new family for bringing home happiness!

 

 

Furry Foster Families

TNR Trust Nairobi is built on the generous help of its volunteers and well-wishers. We welcome all kinds of support, from those who graciously share their time and homes with fosters, and also from those who are willing and able to help us cover the financial costs of the work TNR is doing.

Warm, caring foster families are critical to TNR Trust Nairobi’s operations. We are always on the lookout for volunteers to provide a temporary accommodation for our furry friends as they wait for their forever homes. While fostering isn’t easy, it can be extremely rewarding and exciting, as you are making a direct impact on the life of a foster animal. Fosters can volunteer for a set period of time, or agree to care for an animal (or animals) until they are adopted.

If you want to learn more about fostering, please get in touch, and we can connect you with another volunteer who can talk to you from personal experience.

Why does TNR Trust Nairobi use foster families?

  • A puppy/kitten that is too young to be adopted needs a safe place to stay until he or she is old enough to go to a forever home.
  • A dog/cat is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
  • A dog/cat has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized

And why should you consider fostering?

  • You will be able to help TNR Trust Nairobi learn more about the dog/cat so he/she can end up in the best home possible.
  • You will give your foster dog/cat the time he/she needs to be ready for adoption.
  • You will be able to assist in socializing the dog to a home environment and possibly getting him used to being around other pets and different types of people.
  • Your foster pet will learn from you that they are loved
  • You will give your foster pet a chance to shine
  • And goodbye is a Happy Ending by making someone else’s family complete

Still not convinced?

It is also a great trial to see if you and your family are ready for a dog.

In Nairobi, a high number of people are expatriates. They often don’t know when or where their next move will take them. Fostering is therefore a great option for them as they can have the companionship while not committing to the dog or cat long term.

To draw about cats and dogs, you have to have owned one (or still do) to truly understand them.

Christopher Grady (or more common known in the online comic world as Lunarbaboon) knows exactly how these four-legged creatures fit into his family life or his surroundings.
