Sometimes at KSPCA we encounter the darker side of human nature. Recently a man came to our shelter and reported to Fred Atsiaya one of our kennel managers, that he had five cats in his car that he wanted to surrender. Fred said we would take them but we would like a donation from him to help cover costs.

The man agreed, walked out to his car, opened the doors threw the cats out and drove off. The cats understandably were terrified and ran off. We managed to catch three of them but unfortunately two have never been found, one of them being the mother of the half grown kittens. How heartless of the owner. Whatever small he would have given we would have taken in the cats.

Mother cat hid on the roof, but ran away and was never caught.

    Hi KSPCA. I believe it would be better for you to be the ones providing neutering and spaying services Free or at the lowest rate. You can use vets in training or other volunteer vets. This will reduce the number of cats / dogs being abandoned because they are multiplying too fast and often. That would protect the animals against cruelty which is your mandate.

      Hi Tina. Thank you for your suggestion. We would really like to be doing that as much as possible and cover many areas, in that matter. But our main challenge is funding, since we are a charity organization and we majorly depend on donations. When we get enough funding, we are then able to plan the spay/neuter and vaccination campaigns in lower in come areas for free.

    Hi KSPCA I’m looking for a place to keep my two cats for a while and I’m willing to pay the costs for the funds to provide for my cats. ( I’m traveling and want to bring my cats with me after I have reached my destination in January I’m leaving in October)

    Hi KSPCA,I rescued 2 kittens that are now grown,and another one i was given as a gift by my neighbor .So i have 3 now.They are all grown now and healthy.2 male and 1 female.I wish to keep them forever because i love them so much;they’re like my babies.There is one major problem though.My family wants them out of the house as soon as possible because they’re afraid when the female will give birth(she’s not yet pregnant) , there will be too many cats in the house.I also think it would be overwhelming and i wont be able to feed all of them.I contacted a veterinary doctor a while back to ask how much it is to spay them and i was told 5 thousand KES per cat.It is too expensive for me but i still want to keep my cats.Is there a way you can help me?

      Hi Elle. Sorry, unfortunately we do not offer spaying services. You can go to a government veterinary clinic, like the one in Kabete. It is a bit cheaper there

    Reading about what KSPCA, volunteers and animal lovers are doing is therapeutic to my soul. I have taken care of abandoned kittens in the past and it has been so gratifying to see them recover from the trauma that some brutal human beings have caused, and see them grow up and be all they could be. It’s unfortunate that the man abandoned the cats and drove off without leaving a donation, but on a positive note, at least he did not poison them, or abandon them in a forest.

    Hi, I also love animals and believe that they can be therapeutic in one way or the other.
    Last year I began taking care of two female stray cats oblivious of the fact that they procreate at least thrice a year. Now am stuck with four adults and five kittens and the cost of spaying and neutering is pretty expensive. My neighbours want me to abandon them as the breeding is getting out of hand. What do I do?

    That’s cruel. I’m in a situation where I can’t go back home bcoz I have 2 male cats who have been with me for 11 years. My father won’t let me back in the house with them. And I have no heart to abandon them. I love them n very protective towards them. I don’t know what to do. Do I have any rights to go back home without them being harmed in anyway?

    That is just complete outright brutal. I would like to figure out a way to volunteer and visit every now and then.
