Needing Home and lost

Looking For A Good, Loving Home For My Two Cats. I am relocating to the UK and cannot take them with me. One 5 year old male pure grey neutered long hair male, and one, year old female tortoiseshell, spayed. They need to stay together as they are inseparable. They are not used to dogs, though the grey did grow up with our two Pomeranians ( both have passed away from old age), and they are very friendly and loving - not bullies in any way. I am very happy, and want to, to contribute financially to their upkeep for ever, as it will be my way to try and keep ties to them. I don’t want them to end up in a shelter and become cage cats, waiting to be adopted. Please, please help me out. I can be contacted on 0772410453 or by email: I have lots of photos of them if needed

Homes Needed

Let’s ALL fight this crime together  - stay ALERT and SAFE !

This month has seen vehicles being hijacked as the owner of the vehicle gets out and locking the vehicle in public parking area so be very vigilant that’s you are not being watched. Handbag stolen at the same time which is very stressful,  if you do happen to find cards and documents that could easily been tossed aside please if a contact number is available call the person involved as to obtain new documents is often a very tedious costly exercise. .    If this is not possible hand in at the nearest Police Station. This has happened in more than one public area in Pomona, Borrowdale and Kamfinsa. It also seems that women on their own are the targets. Please be on your guard when driving to the Airport especially at night … 

CASES of theft from vehicles are still a statistic …..  mostly due to total carelessness … do NOT leave valuable items including shopping in full view put all in the BOOT. To just cover up valuables with a jacket or jersey is NOT safety …. if it can be seen through the window it is a prime picking …. Let’s all be sensible and think before leaving things in the vehicle …   it only takes seconds to SMASH & GRAB and it only takes seconds to be wise and put all in the boot and out of view.
Please check that vehicles all travel with the required recently serviced fire extinguisher (every six months) correct honeycomb reflectors on the vehicle and 2 x triangles that reflect on both sides. This will save any aggravation at road blocks. Hopefully the Road Traffic Board has taken up the regulation on space saver/biscuit wheels as spares and informed the Police Traffic Department to alleviate the present chaos on the subject
Attention to all ATM users to be on the  alert as to your surroundings and to not accept ‘help’ whilst using the machine and do NOT give your pin number to anyone, rather wait for the Bank to open and draw the cash.  Do not keep large sums of cash in homes or business premises, arrange for a security company to transport with an armed guard backwards and forwards. 

Let’s ALL fight this crime together  - stay ALERT and SAFE !

In a recent incident, a man was alleged to have been bitten by a dog whilst visiting a property in Harare. Several days later, he was admitted to hospital (he had not been well for some time), where he passed away. The medical staff could not rule out Rabies as a possible cause of death and when further investigated, it was found that the Rabies Certificate for the dog had expired. In cases like this, the Veterinary Department is tasked with ensuring that the dog is quarantined and monitored for a stipulated period of time, or, if the dog is a stray, unmanageable or vicious, they have the legal right to destroy the animal there and then (usually by shooting) and send the animal for testing.

The report made to the Veterinary Department indicated that the dog was vicious, and, acting on this information, they arrived at the property with a weapon. Fortunately VAWZ Inspectors were on the scene and were able to calm the situation and uplift the dog for quarantine (it has since been re-vaccinated and returned to the owner). Contrary to  rumours circulating, VAWZ does not carry a weapon, and certainly would not dream of shooting anyone’s pet. Discussions have since taken place with the Vet Department on how to approach these situations with the emphasis being on humane destruction of the animal if so required.

In this case, the owner of the dog is guilty of contravening The Animal Health Act and is liable to a fine as well as ensuring that the dog is vaccinated before release from quarantine. Rabies is 100% fatal for both man and animals and it is irresponsible to allow your dogs’ vaccinations to lapse. It doesn’t matter if the dog is well known or by whom – if your certificate has expired, you’re in trouble.

Vaccination Information:

Dogs:  6 weeks                               1st Parvo

            9 weeks                               2nd Parvo

            12 weeks                             5 in 1 and Rabies

            1 year old                            Booster 5 in 1 and Rabies

            Thereafter, 5 in 1 and Rabies annually.  If the Rabies vaccination has lapsed, a booster will be necessary 6 months after re-vaccination date.

Cats:    9 weeks                               First IFE / IFR (Cat Flu and Snuffles)

             12 weeks                             Booster IFE / IFR and Rabies

             Thereafter, IFE / IFR and Rabies annually

, Desi (ree) Hacker is one of the people in our midst that is really making a difference to the community. She is THE one person that is keeping the Harare SPCA going through all of the trials and tribulations that they are going through. Like many similar organisations in Zimbabwe, there are never enough funds to run things as smoothly as one could. The end result is that corners are cut just to make ends meet. Desi has now decided to put together a small collection of short stories and she is, here, asking for advice and help to meet her new objective. Please think seriously about what you can do to help her. Woof Woof, Mike G.



Ladies and gentlemen

In order to raise awareness of the plight of domestic pets in Zimbabwe and to enlighten you on the incredible work carried out by the Harare Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, I am embarking on a project to put together a collection of short stories that you, as individuals, can contribute to. I will need to find an editor and a publisher to make this possible. The aim is also to sell the book in order to raise funds for the Society, so it can continue to offer solace ,care and veterinary treatment to all the stray and unwanted domestic animals.

With this in mind, I urge you to dig deep into your fondest memories, find photographs, write a short story about your Mutts and Moggies . If you are the privileged owner of a rescue pet or pedigree please share the tales of bravery, loyalty and unconditional love and devotion.                

I have never attempted anything similar before, so I am asking for help and advice to make this possible.  The success of this endeavour will depend entirely on you. It will take nothing short of a miracle to keep the doors to the Harare Spca open to the needy animals and to the owners who do not have the funds to help for their sick and dying pets. The HSPCA is a private, voluntary organization and relies purely on donations and the support of the public and sponsors. I urge you to help, in any way you can. The management , staff, Council members  and volunteers at the Harare SPCA  work tirelessly to rescue, rehome and treat abused and neglected animals. Your contributions this project would be most welcome. I cannot promise that this will be a success and that if it is that all the stories will be included. Bear with me on this endeavour and please be patient for the outcome.

Thank you.
