Spay Clinic Update

The world has come to a standstill but we wanted to give you an update on what is happening with the Spay Clinic that you generously donated towards. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Government of Eswatini imposed a nation-wide lockdown on March 27. In order to adhere to the Government restrictions and to help stop the spread of the virus, we had no choice but to postpone our Spay Clinic. This is also due to the fact that Waterford Kamhlaba United World College has been closed, and the amazing team of students from the school who play a crucial role in the running of the Spay Clinics, are not available to assist. Also, our movements are still restricted, and the safety of volunteers and Vets is also extremely important to us. We are hoping to organize at least one Spay Clinic this year when the situation improves, hopefully around July, if not, around September or October.

In the meantime, we are continuing with our much needed work to rescue and rehome animals in distress. These are extremely challenging times for everyone, and the crisis is also hitting us hard and having a serious impact on our operations. Due to the crisis and the Goverment restrictions, we had to cancel all our fundraising events, which is a vital source of income for us. The crisis doesn't mean that animal welfare cases that require our intervention also stop. On the contrary, we have seen more animals being surrendered due to loss of job/income and the situation will most likely get worse. Despite this crisis, we are determined to continue our work and further our mission to rescue, care for, and save as many animals as possible from pain and suffering. We really need your help to get through this unprecedented crisis. Our funds are running critically low, and we are down to our meagre savings to continue with our operations for the next 1-2 months. We can not afford to close our doors, as that would have devastating consequences for the animals in distress that need our help, and would have a lasting negative impact on animal welfare in Eswatini. If you have anything to spare, please donate to our COVID-19 Appeal and help us through this crisis, and help us spread the word by sharing with others.

We can not begin to express how grateful we are for all the support you, our donor family, have given us thus far, and continue to give us. Every unwanted litter we prevented through our Spay Program, you made it happen. Every animal we saved from an abusive situation, you made it happen. Every starving stray animal we saved from the streets, you made it happen. It is YOU who make our work possible! So thank you!!!
