The number of animals coming in to the Harare SPCA is the worst it has ever been
We do not have limitless space, staff or funding
Our facilities are full to overflowing
We are in an extremely critical situation

The figures below represent a fraction of the real numbers of animals out there which are never given a chance by a shelter, and which suffer unbelievable hardship and pain


Total Stray, Surrendered and Abandoned Animals 2024
  January February March April Total to date
DOGS Stray 92 54 66 63 275
Surrendered 158 116 119 58 451
Abandoned 22 9 7 6 44
Claimed 11 13 3 14 41
Adopted       16 adults
1 puppy
 
CATS Stray 87 51 44 37 219
Claimed 2 0 0 0 2
Adopted       6 adults
8 kittens
 

Every animal is examined, checked for microchip, vaccinated, kenneled and fed twice a day.

No ZESA means that the Generator is running constantly (needs diesel). Freezers (food) and fridges (vaccines) need to be kept cold, the X-Ray machine and theatre need power so the surgeon can expedite both critical and routine surgeries.

Our driver is out constantly picking up strays (needs petrol) - often dangerous and time-consuming work. Blankets need to be washed, kennels and cages cleaned - this all comes with a cost.

The best way you can assist us is by donating into either our ECOCASH or FBC account

Grateful thanks to you all for your support.

About Us

Established in 1911, the Harare SPCA is the oldest Animal Welfare Organisation in Zimbabwe.
The Harare SPCA is a registered, non-profit organisation (PVO 83/67).

Our role is to provide safe sanctuary and care for animals in and around Harare and at the same time endeavour to educate the populace about animal care to prevent ill treatment and cruelty to animals and promote sterilisation.

We cover the whole of the Greater Harare area which includes all high density areas and Ruwa.

No animal in need is ever turned away from our doors.

The Harare SPCA operates from two premises: the Hospital and the Re-homing Kennels.

Funding to keep the Society going is reliant on the good will and support of concerned Corporate entities, Individuals and Fund Raising efforts.

Should you wish to donate to the Harare SPCA or find out the various ways in which you can help, please visit our  Get Involved  page.

Hospital

Location: 2 R. G. Mugabe Airport Road, Corner Cranborne Avenue, Hatfield.

Acting as the Official Municipal Pound, Harare SPCA is the first "Go To" place people will consult when their pet is missing – either to report it missing or to search for it.

Strays are admitted to the Clinic where they are scanned for a microchip, vaccinated and kept for a mandatory 10 day pound time. If they are not claimed by their owners after the mandatory 10 day pound time, they then become the property of the Harare SPCA and transferred to the Re-homing Kennels for a chance to be adopted into a caring home.

At the Animal Hospital we have two resident Veterinarians. The Hospital is well equipped with an x-ray machine and surgical theatre where our Vets are able to carry out most surgical procedures.
This facility also has a Dip Tank available for use by the public. No charge for this service.

Our resident ZNSPCA Inspector - accredited by the Ministry of Environment, Climate and Water Resources – ensures that all protocols pertaining to animal handling as set down by the ZNSPCA are adhered to at the Hospital and Re-homing kennels and educates the public on pertinent issues including sterilization, correct feeding and care etc. He will also respond to and investigate reports of cruelty and neglect, collect animals reported injured in road traffic accidents and pick up lost or stray animals and assist with the home check inspections of applicants who wish to adopt an animal to ensure the environment is suitable.
Post home-checks are also carried out to ensure all is well with the newly adopted pet and its new owners.

Any reports of cruelty or neglect, animals in need or reports of lost and found animals should be made to the Hospital Reception or ZNSPCA. All reports of cruelty are treated in confidence.

This facility houses the dogs and cats which are available for adoption

HARARE SPCA ADOPTION PROCEDURE

Most of our animals come from a compromised situation. Accordingly, we try to ensure they are re-homed appropriately to ensure they will be properly cared for.

Therefore, the Harare SPCA reserves the right to choose the most suitable homes for the dogs/cats available for adoption.

To book an appointment to discuss your requirements:

Call 0777373336 between 0930 and 1430 Monday to Saturday

Note: walk-ins will only be accommodated if the manager is available.

On arrival at your appointment time, you will be invited to complete the relevant paperwork.

Our adoption policies will be explained and your requirements discussed.

If the initial adoption requirements are met, you will then be invited to meet the available animals which conform to your criteria.

If a suitable animal is found, a non-refundable Administration and Home Check  Fee is payable.

A Home Check will be carried out by ZNSPCA Inspectors.

If the Home Check  is passed, then an adoption fee must be paid, and you will be required to sign a legal and binding adoption contract.

The adoption fee includes:
Sterilization
Microchip
Current vaccinations.

Note: The animal remains the property of the HSPCA.

A post home visit may be carried out after adoption to ensure all is well.

A Dip Tank is available for use by the public . No charge for this service.
