The Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA) was originally conceived by individuals concerned about the state of animal welfare in the country and in 2008, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security gave its full support for an animal welfare charity. With the kind support of the RSPCA International, the Trust was registered and inaugurated as a charity in 2010, becoming the first of its kind in Malawi. From the inception to date, the organisation has gone through a series of transformation and has been involved in various projects pertinent to both animal and human livelihoods. Through these various activities, several milestones have been reached that are worth mentioning below. The Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals is a registered Charity (number TR/INC 4844, registered 14th October 2010) operating under the Ministry of Agriculture through the Animal Protection Act in the Laws of Malawi.
