Omogolo Wildlife Trust was able to fund MAWS vaccination & sterilization clinics in Tsau (June 2016 and July 2017) and in Chanoga (May 2017). Over 100 dogs were vaccinated and sterilized, and a number of dogs were treated for various problems or taken back to the MAWSclinicin Maun for treatment.
These clinics are free for the local residents. They live far from the nearest vet and they cannot afford one. The vaccinations prevent transmission of diseases to the wildlife around.
If you want to be involved in these clinics, don’t hesitate to send your donation!
MAWS is short for Maun Animal Welfare Society. MAWS’ mission is to prevent indiscriminate breeding, transmissible disease and human-inflicted cruelty in domestic animals via sterilisation, vaccination and education. Their vision is to promote a society which respects, protects and cares for all species of animal: domestic, livestock or wildlife.
MAWS provides free veterinary care to the animals of low-income individuals in and around Maun. Their purpose-built clinic hosts international volunteer vets year-round who sterilise and vaccinate dogs and cats, provide life-saving emergency treatment, and humanely euthanize animals beyond help.
They reunite, rehome and rehabilitate lost, found and stray animals, educate owners about the importance of
responsible animal care, and provide an emergency first-response service to
MAWS is wholly dependent on external funding and only exists due to the generosity of donors.
Omogolo Wildlife Trust has seen up-close the fantastic work MAWS does, and we’d like to help.
One of MAWS’ activities is Sterilisation and vaccination outreach clinics, where the vets travel to villages in rural areas where villagers live side-by-side with wildlife.
This outreach work brings vital veterinary care to remote locations and prevents the transmission of distemper and rabies: diseases that can decimate wildlife, including key predator species such as African wild dogs, lions, leopards and cheetahs.
MAWS, together with Omogolo
Wildlife Trust, are organizing outreach clinics in Tsau and Chanoga, two villages in Ngamiland, Botswana.
We would love you to become involved! We are looking for donations to cover the costs of vaccines and medication.
Every donation is more than welcome and will allow us to organize more clinics in the rural areas of Botswana!

An estimated 25,000 donkeys roam around in Botswana and are often hit by vehicles, as their eyes do not reflect headlights. These ear tags save their lives - and those of the drivers that hit them.
