The Seychelles Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (SSPCA) aims to provide care and treatment to the population of stray, neglected, mistreated and abused animals in The Seychelles.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The SSPCA is currently the only organization attempting to deal with the countries stray population of dogs and cats. These animals are a traffic hazards and have a negative impact on the image of The Seychelles as a tourist destination, nearly 80% of the countryas GDP. Education and preventative measures are needed and can help stop the mistreatment and abuse of animals. The SSPCA is committed to Uplifting Animal Welfare in the Seychelles.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project aims to sterilise a large population of stray animals existing in the Seychelles and to provide initial primary treatment and long term care to injured, abandoned, mistreated and neglected domestic animals. We will go into schools with educational programs on how to care for animals, and enforce a successful re-homing program in place for strays and unwanted animals. Through providing initial medical care we can save mistreated and injured animals with a view to rehoming them.
Potential Long Term Impact
SSPCA is aiming to build the first animal welfare centre in the Seychelles, with the long term goal of providing a centre where stray and neglected domestic animals can be treated, cared for and ultimately rehomed. In trying to tackle the country's stray dog problem they have sterilized to date over 10,400 animals. Currently there is no such facility in The Seychelles and the SSPCA aims to provide the first of its kind in the country.
