In November we re-homed 2 dogs and 2 cats. In house at present we have 28 dogs, 9 cats and 4 donkeys.
We have had some repairs going on at the staff quarters as well as the kennels.
We also did several investigations and follow-ups of re-homed animals in Naivasha and its environs.
We rescued a donkey with a serious limb injury in Mirera, Naivasha. The identified owner never reported, and we found the donkey struggling with the wound in the pastures without any veterinary attention. We brought him to the shelter and he is now receiving treatment.
Two donkeys were accidentally electrocuted to death by a loose connection from a street light tower at Karagita market. We advocated for repairing the electricity issue and advised the owner to always monitor the whereabouts of his donkeys.
This poor dog was attacked by other dogs during mating season and his ear was very badly injured. We rescued and treated him, and advised the owner to have him neutered. We also rescued this dog from Kongoni area in Naivasha, with an injury on the face. He is recovering steadily at the shelter.
The final year students of Animal Science from Egerton University paid us a visit at the KSPCA Naivasha shelter. We took them through several animal welfare issues such as animal rescue systems, proper handling and care of animals, community education and awareness, as well as other common issues of concern. We finished with a practical demonstration of donkey handling & restraint, hoof trimming and proper dog trapping methods.
