Have-a-Heart is a registered non-profit organisation (21/2014/0378), working across Namibia, with the ethos of 'saving lives through sterilisation'.Our main aim is to provide free dog and cat spay and neuter services to pet owners with low or no income. Our goal is the ultimate, sustainable aim of reducing the number of stray animals and animals in shelters thus eliminating the need for mass-euthanasia, whilst improving the health and welfare status of township dogs and cats. Every dog and cat has the right to live a happy and healthy life!

Every dog and cat sterilised by Have-a-Heart also receives a vaccination and parasite control treatment, bringing direct health benefits to dogs and cats themselves as well as the human communities and local wildlife populations.With your support we provide and improve system equality by giving less fortunate pets access to vetarinarian care. 

Have-a-Heart is well known and established in the country with a proven track record of success.

Have-a-Heart Namibia has partnered with about 20 veterinarians from all over Namibia, other charities and the mobile animal clinics of Dr Erna Meyer, Dr Hartmut Winterbach, and Dr Ian Baines. We work together with the vets and organise spay and neuter events for dogs and cats, depending on the availability of the vets and funds received through donations.

​ The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child recognised that witnessing violence towards animals is damaging to the next generation, making particular reference to societal violence against dogs. Through our dedicated efforts, we have have significantly reduced the breeding rates of dogs and cats in the areas where we work, also improved their health and the value of the pet within the community and prevented traumatising mass killings.
