Some of the success stories!


Houdini was found after being hit by a car. He was on deaths door the day I bundled him into my car and brought him back to the rescue shelter…
He was starving and his back leg was broken beyond repair from the collision. Houdini is now fattened up, and for all missing a leg, is now healthy and living with an American family here in Tanzania! 🙂

I found Oliver in some waist land near a hospital. Thankfully and english lady had seen him and gave me a call. It took a full day to catch the terrified Oliver that day! Sadly he had been the victim of back alley euthanasia, and someone had hung him by the neck from a tree. Oliver however managed to escape, but not before the rope had gone so deep into his neck it severed his wind pipe. I thought that day Oliver would not make it, but he did… he still has emotional scars from his traumatic ordeal, but he now lives happily and safely here with us at the shelter, and will do until he is gray and old 🙂

Below is when i first found Oliver…              Below is the unbelievable site that were the                                                                                      1000’s of maggots that had infested                                                                                                    Olivers wound..

One day Assisi, name after Saint Francis, just appeared behind me. She then began to follow me, so naturally i took her in… Assisi was close to death that day, she was severely malnourished, and had bad an infestation of ticks, fleas, mange and worms like you would not believe! Assisi is now my dog actually, but we live with all the others here at the shelter!

Mama and her 4 pups!

Mama and her 4 pups, Sinbad, Tequila, Lizzy and Peppa were sadly about to be hung as Oliver was when i went on this rescue! Mama was a mess, very malnourished and her pups just a week or 2 old… I met the man who was supposed to carry out the hanging on this occasion, and he no longer partakes in anything to do with euthanasia of dogs. Mama now lives here at the shelter. Peppa lives with a family who love her dearly, Sinbad is leaving us soon to go to a new home, and Tequila and Lizzy will be also! A success story! Mama who is very old now, will live out her days in comfort with us here at the shelter we suspect 🙂
