LSPCA is the only animal welfare organisation in Malawi that regularly delivers qualified veterinary care to farm animals alongside the government's Department for Animal Health and Livestock Development.
We support rural communities to improve the welfare of their farm animals, boosting health and production to secure income and better livelihoods and food security for small-holder farmers.
Every farm clinic opens our eyes to the glaring need for veterinary care as we often treat up to 350 animals (donkeys, cows, goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits ducks, sheep, cattle and guinea pigs) at one clinic. Our farm clinics, in the heart of local villages, treat as many livestock as possible; without our effort, the majority of these animals would easily live their entire life without receiving any veterinary attention. Our education team on site deliver animal welfare messages to livestock owners and are slowly building a 'fee for service' understanding to promote responsible livestock ownership.
