Have a Heart

Have a Heart Namibia

Project  Overview:

The aim of the Project – A spay day in Swakopmund for pet owners of low and no income families. 


The assistance of the Pupkewitz Foundation provides a spay day in Swakopmund where a grand total of 39 more dogs and cats from low and no income families became the newest members of the Have-a-Heart family. 26 dogs and 13 cats were all sterilized, vaccinated and given parasite control treatments and will no longer be adding to the pet over population problem! To add to that, 25 previously sterilized family members came back for their check ups and booster vaccinations, plus one dog was treated for TVT! As always, many more animals were brought to Have-a-heart than they could help in a single day.
