Aims / Mission Statement:
Vision: Africa’s communities and governments showing compassion, protection and care for all animals
Mission: We work with communities, governments, partners and other stakeholders across Africa promoting humane treatment of all animals.
Overview Of Activities:
ANAW works with governments, communities and other stakeholders to address issues related to animal welfare. This includes anti-rabies vaccination campaigns, routine de-snaring of animal habitats, and rescuing animals in distress.
The organization sends out teams to search, identify and remove snares from game reserves and private ranches. We also focus on alternatives to use of animals in harmful experiments, education, training and research, disaster management/emergency response, spay/neuter as well as anti-rabies vaccination campaigns undertaken to control dog population.
We also seek to lobby for review, formulation and implementation of policies and legislations geared towards the conservation and better management of wildlife in Kenya and the region. We partner with stakeholders to raise awareness on animal welfare practices among local people to encourage them to participate in local and national efforts against cruelty to animals among other issues. This helps to reduce conflicts between humans and animals and reduce prevalence of all forms of cruelty and persecution of animals in society.
