Summary

Mutare SPCA is the main provider of animal welfare in the Eastern province of Zimbabwe, home to +/- 1.5 million people. We find ourselves on the brink of closure due to the current economic crisis, at a time when our services for animals are most desperately needed. Our unemployment rate is 90%, hence our donor base is eroded and exhausted. Our mission is the eradication of animal neglect and abuse through outreach to, and education of, our communities, working largely through schools.

Challenge

Our SPCA faces imminent closure due to Zimbabwe's economic crisis. Our local donors are exhausted at a time when the need for animal welfare and education is at its peak. Our 8 volunteers spend most of their time fundraising, yet we are failing to meet our basic needs, let alone those of our outreach and school educational programmes. Funding will keep us alive, and enable continued and increased contact with our communities. The benefit to both animals and these communities is indisputable.

Solution

'External' funding is the only conceivable way that we will keep functioning through this difficult time in Zimbabwe, when our services for animals are most needed. We are the only organisation in this area that is able to respond to cases of neglect, cruelty, rabies, and stray animals. We are the only facility that can safely house, care for and rehabilitate these animals whilst they wait to be re-homed. No other local organisation has our commitment to education through schools and out-reach.

Long-Term Impact

Animal welfare is on going work in every community and the benefits to animals rescued are very clear. However, we are also well aware of The Link (http://nationallinkcoalition.org/what-is-the-link), being the link between child and animal abuse. It is of such benefit to both if we are as active as possible in our communities during these very stressed times. For our projects to obtain their objectives will require more full time commitment that our 8 volunteers are able to give.
