USPCA: Updates & Some Changes Coming in 2024

Adopted! Lucky dog and lucky new "mom"

Hello to all of you who so kindly and generously support our Partner Organization, Uganda SPCA,

I'm going to stick to "progress" and not predictions, since this is a Progress Report! But I expect that in our next GlobalGiving Progress Report, I'll be telling you about some major changes (i.e., progress). But if you follow the Animal-Kind International Blog (see the most recent blog post about Uganda SPCA, below, under "Links"), and if you receive our monthly AKI newsletters (you can subscribe HERE -AKI's Home Page), you'll hear about the changes even sooner. 

Although we don't have progress to report on as far as new construction and moving into the new site, we have seen progress as far as adoptions, visitors to/volunteers at the USPCA Haven, and community work.

First, adoptions: I'm attaching some pictures of the most recent ones, including one lucky dog; two puppies adopted together; and a grey kitty going to a forever home. These are just a few of several USPCA adoptions since January 2024.

Volunteers: In early February, the USPCA welcomed a few volunteer vets to help with spay/neuter at The Haven (see picture). It's very easy to fall behind on spay/neuter surgeries of rescued cats and dogs when there are so many new rescues every week.

In January, Lara brought a group of people to The Haven, who donated food and spent time playing with puppies (see 2 pictures).

Those are just two examples of visitors and volunteers that the USPCA has welcomed in 2024.

Community work: The USPCA is continuing their work in local communities, encouraging everyone to spay/neuter their pets and providing free spay/neuter.

About a year ago, the USPCA spayed a family's white dog, and now-in early March-that family asked the USPCA to return to spay their brown dog (pictured) and their cat. The USPCA picks up the animals from the family, the surgery takes place at The Haven, and then, once recovered, the USPCA returns the pet to the family (or in some cases, to the community, if the dog or cat has no family, and if the community wants the animal back--as long as they know the animal will be safe and well-treated).

Sometimes community work entails more than spay/neuter. For example, Scooby had TVT, a form of cancer that is transmissable between dogs and is common among unneutered animals. The USPCA was called to help Scooby (see picture). They brought Scooby to the shelter, where he is receiving TVT treatment. The cancer is curable, and when Scooby's treatment is completed, he'll be returned to his family.

The USPCA puts top priority on taking good care of the shelters' rescued/abandoned animals --about 350 of them--and we are grateful that with your help, we've been able to give them the best care. As always, so much more has happened at the USPCA Haven (both shelters) than we can report on and post pictures about here. But please stick with us as we move forward, make changes, improve, and together rejoice at the progress yet to come.
