The work we do

The scope of animal welfare work that VAWZ undertakes can be broadly defined under the following four main areas of operation:

Rural Animal Welfare Clinics

These campaigns are run throughout the country during the winter months. Areas covered at present are Honde Valley, Chimanimani, Nyanga, Victoria Falls, Beit Bridge, Caledonia, Christon Bank, Old Mazowe and Marondera ..


Victoria Falls Animal Health & Welfare Centre

Opened in 2016, the Centre is located in the rural area of Ntabayengwe offering veterinary care to animals in the surrounding communal areas. Treatment ranges from disease & parasite control, sterilizations, wildlife conflict ..


Beitbridge Donkey Health & Welfare Centre

Donkeys are used by communities in the area for transport and draught power; however, many of these donkeys have low welfare conditions due in part to poor nutrition, management and handling practices ..


Inspections and Investigations

VAWZ is responsible for investigating cases of suspected animal cruelty/abuse that come to the attention of the public as well as any situations where animal welfare may be compromised ..


A special mention of thanks to the many veterinary surgeries who give so generously of their time and expertise to attend to the many animals we bring in to them for treatment.
