1.Spay/Neuter Campaigns – We feel strongly that overpopulation of cats and dogs should be controlled by sterilization rather than by killing of healthy animals. The KSPCA conducts spay and neuter campaigns in lower income areas when funds are available.
2.Animal Shelter – We run a shelter for animals which are abandoned, homeless, lost or victims of cruelty. We provide care and a safe environment until either they are reclaimed or rehomed to carefully vetted new homes. The KSPCA has a minimum kill policy, only animals that by reason of age, ill health or temperament cannot be rehomed are euthanized.
3.Humane Slaughter– We were instrumental in introducing humane slaughter of livestock in Kenya. After having seen the way animals suffer in abattoirs, we embarked on a humane slaughter programme promoting the use of captive bolt pistols. We import captive bolts pistols and blank ammunition which are sold to the abattoirs at cost price. Our inspectors teach slaughter house staff on proper use of humane killers and their maintenance.
4.Investigations & Rescue– We respond to over 6000 calls per year including reports of cruelty or abandonment and advising owners on pet care.
5.Education & Advocacy – We target school children by visiting schools and encouraging visits to the shelter to teach them on importance of animal welfare.
