“Living with animals can be a wonderful experience, especially if we choose to learn the valuable lessons animals teach through their natural enthusiasm, grace, resourcefulness, affection and forgiveness.” – Richard H. Pitcairn
In a Few Words…
KSPCA is the only animal welfare charity in Kenya protecting animals from neglect and abuse. We rely on the help of volunteers, voluntary fundraising and donations to carry out our important work, so your support is invaluable to us!
Since the society’s formation one hundred years ago, KSPCA has grown and is well known for animal rescue and rehabilitation. Our headquarters on Langata Road, Karen were established in 1983 when land was purchased and kennels and a small cattery were built. With a focus on domestic animals, KSPCA is currently home to around 150 dogs, 90 cats as well as donkeys and goats and we rehome around 45-50 dogs and 20 cats per month. KSPCA also has offices providing relief to animals in Naivasha and Mombasa.
We firmly believe that educating younger generations is the best way to raise standards of animal care in the future and encourage school children to visit the shelter and learn about animal welfare. In the last twenty years we have seen an encouraging change in attitudes to animals, though there is still a long way to go.
Our Mission and Vision
KSPCA’s vision is a Kenyan society living with happy and healthy animals, showing compassion towards them. Our mission is to care for animals and protect them from stress and cruelty through rescue, community education and enforcement of animal welfare laws in Kenya.
This we aim to achieve by promoting the protection of all kinds of animals, preventing cruelty to them, rescuing and relieving animals from all manner of suffering.
KSPCA has its headquarters in Nairobi and 2 branches in Mombasa and Naivasha. In total, KSPCA has over 30 permanent staff members led by the Executive Officer.
