Meet Ziggy who won the Class for the
Shaggiest Dog at the KSPCA Shaggy Dog Show up at Vipingo
Ridge Conference Centre, on the 11th
Both Ziggy and Harry were re-homed,
from the KSPCA, to the same family, and are the very best of
Polly, who is also owned by this
family, won the Veteran Class – she will be 20 years old
We had a fantastic Shaggy Dog Show
with 50 dogs competing in a number of Classes including
the Sausage Eating, both dog and handler.
The dogs of course woofed theirs down
in seconds, but the handlers struggled !
There was also an Obstacle Course
which caused some confusion and a Young Handlers Class.
There were tables there selling all
sorts of lovely things and masses of visitors came to
enjoy the day.
KSPCA made Shs. 197,000/- which was
fantastic. My very sincere thanks go to Pippa, Debbie
and Julie for their amazing efforts in organizing such a
We had so many helpers too, Ariuka,
Nash, Nicolle, Sue, Eric and so many more.

Huge thanks to all those that
participated and all the visitors who came along to enjoy the
day to support us.
Every child should have a dog that
they can cuddle up to!
A lovely happy forever home for one
sweet good natured dog and her beautifully marked ginger
Even the baby loves them. What more
could they ask for!
We were called out recently to bring
in a dog from someone’s house in the Nyali area.
This dog had suddenly become extremely
aggressive and was trying to bite everyone and everything – he
It turned out that their dogs had not
been vaccinated for rabies.
How sad because this could have been
As you probably know, when a rabid dog
is brought in, it is immediately put to sleep, the head removed
and taken to the Government Veterinary Laboratories in Mariakani.
The brain is then tested for rabies
and we receive the results the same day, via a text
message. We then notify the people in the area from which
the dog has been brought in.
We also had a call to say that a dog
had been hit by a car near Wild Waters on Links Road. We went
there immediately, but sadly the dog had died.
We rescued three kittens, about three
months old that had been thrown down a fifteen foot dry well,
near the Kibaki Flats.
Very fortunately, they were not
injured and were in reasonably good condition.
Our little ginger cat that was so
badly burnt has almost healed completely now – she is so sweet
and loving and is looking for a good home.
At the moment we have over 60 dogs and
over 90 cats looking for kind and loving homes.
So, if you are thinking of getting a
dog or cat any time soon, please do call in and have a look here
as we do have some lovely dogs and cats.
We have managed to re-home our two
three legged dogs.
The one that came in with a bone
sticking out of her leg and another one that was abandoned at
one of the vets and brought in to us.
I would like to thank everyone for all
the newspapers that we have been receiving.
This has made our lives so much easier
and we are happy to have as many newspapers as you can find.
I would also like to thank one of our
supporters for enabling us to put new mabati on our Recovery
This is totally wonderful and soon we
shall no longer have to mop out the place every time it rains.
Our table at the Kilifi Garden
Festival (Craft Fair) went very well with quite a lot of people
The KSPCA did well and everyone seemed
to have a good time.
There was also a lecture on insects
(It’s a Bug’s Life by Dino Martins), which was fascinating and
we all learnt a lot, especially just how important the insects
are for pollination and for the well being of all.
Our next event is the KSPCA Christmas
Craft Fair which is being held on the 2nd December at
the Bahari Beach Hotel.
This will be well worth visiting as
there are going to be very many tables (55 confirmed so far),
with a great variety of things on sale, of every description.
We have five new Christmas card
designs donated again by artist Kim Kay.
This could be your chance of finding
that elusive Christmas present which is giving you so much
The one that was held there last year
was fantastic and we are expecting this one to be even better.
Our very sincere thanks to all our
many amazing supporters who keep the Mombasa KSPCA functioning.
her many wonderful helpers, the staff and all the little
residents at the KSPCA.
