As a hands-on organization, ANAW's work is anchored on the appreciation that animals have intrinsic value and are sentient beings able to respond to physiological changes in the environment. Our animal protcetion activties include:
Animal Welfare Clinics
ANAW periodically carries out anti-rabies vaccination drives in rural and urban low-income areas. The events also provide opportunities for residents to have their companion friends treated, dewormed and groomed. Thousands of dogs, cats and donkeys have received this care in areas within and outside Nairobi. ANAW collaborates with the veterinary department, local and international veterinarians and other animal welfare organizations.
Anti-Bushmeat Operations and Campaigns
Bush meat hunting in Kenya is the single most threatening, illegal activity to wildlife conservation and management in the country. Kenya Wildlife Service and other authorities have declared that the demand for bush meat to supply commercial consumption is insatiable.
ANAW raises awareness about the devastating effects of bush meat hunting in critical wildlife dispersal areas near and outside of wildlife protected areas including community conserved areas. We do this through rescuing animals trapped with wire snares and injured by the same in various known hotspots for bush meat hunting in Naivasha, Machakos and Taita Taveta areas. ANAW and local stakeholders rescue giraffes, zebras, eland, impala and heartbeats trapped by wire snares while also mopping up substantial volumes of live and dead wire traps in the surveyed regions.
