Challenge

Trafficking of dogs and cats for meat is a common issue which is not being looked into by the authorities in Cameroon. People steal dogs and cats, kill them and sold in dark corners which is consumed in restaurants and elsewhere in Cameroon. Rabies is the most immediate concern for humans and among several common canine diseases. The street dogs produce countless puppies yearly which are vulnerable to diseases. Local dogs roam the streets all time in search of food scraps for survival.

Solution

The project will hold sensitization and vaccination campaign, to provide basic animal health care (vet care), and rescue services to both street and own animals in the northwest region of Cameroon. The sensitization events will raise awareness of animal welfare, care, and protection; by holding community meetings with the quarter and village councils, schools, youths and religious groups, and municipal authorities to stop the consumption of dogs and cats while reducing animal suffering.

Long-Term Impact

There will be a change in peoples minds about the animals, which will lead to significant reduction in animal suffering and put an end to animal trafficking, for consumption in restaurants and elsewhere in Cameroon. 1500 rabies vaccines and de-worming will be administered in the first 1 to 2 years of the operation in the northwest region of Cameroon.
