Spay and Vaccination

The spay and vaccination campaign for dogs in Ongata Rongai where there has been an outbreak of rabies, is ongoing.

We have hired a resident to source bitches for us and they will be brought to our headquarters for sterilising and vaccination.

We also vaccinate any male dogs in the area but only sterilise bitches due to financial constraints.

Sterilisation for Cats

We are also proceeding with a sterilisation campaign around some of the low cost housing estates where there is a problem with cats. We are carrying out a feral cat scheme whereby all healthy adult cats are neutered, vaccinated against rabies and returned.

The unhealthy cats are removed and kittens rehomed. The cats are returned because if they are removed, more unneutered cats will move in and the cycle will start all over again.

Humane Slaughter

Our humane slaughter programme is ongoing and Inspector Benard Atsiaya visits slaughterhouses countrywide on a regular basis. We have made good inroads in that field and most of the busier slaughterhouses country wide are using captive bolt pistols to prestun cattle.

Future Projects

The KSPCA would like to expand its spaying and vaccination project to try to stop the Government Veterinary Department from baiting dogs with strychnine in the lower income areas where dogs are free roaming though the majority have owners.Strychnine poisoning is a very painful death and it is indiscriminant. We would combine it with a Care in the Community programme whereby our staff holds clinics to teach owners to care for their animals and to teach them about deworming and bathing and the importance of vaccination and population control.  Also to understand what a dog needs from its owner to make it into a better pet.

We would also when funds permit, like to repair and renovate our kennels and cattery.

We also desperately need another trainee inspector.

    Hi, I’m a veterinary surgeon from the UK who will be visiting Diani beach at the end of the month.
    I was wondering if there is specific material/drugs/etc that you need? I can’t promise anything but can have a look around our practice if we can spare anything.
    I’d also offer to donate 1-2 days of professional time, if that is of help at all?

    Let me know if I can help,
