Vision: Companionship and community care for every animal
Mission: Enhancing well-being for animals and their community through veterinary services, education and partnerships.
The Mdzananda Animal Clinic is a permanent, veterinary council registered, NPO animal clinic in Khayelitsha township just outside Cape Town, South Africa.
Highly respected and supported by the people they serve, Mdzananda Animal Clinic was founded in 1996 in response to the need to provide veterinary care to a fast growing community that had no access to help for their animals. Today the clinic serves up to 700 animals per month through consultations, hospitilisation, general and specialised surgery and mobile clinics for sick and injured animals, primarily dogs and cats.
Apart from veterinary services the Mdzananda Animal Clinic has an emergency ambulance service, performs continuous sterilizations, rehomes pets, assists with abuse and neglect interventions and performs humane education outreach programmes. We have a strong focus on community empowerment and education and focus on understanding the community’s needs, embracing this, gaining their respect and trust. It is often of the opinion that people in townships should not own pets. We have a different opinion. Anyone who visits Mdzananda has the pleasure of meeting owners who adore their animals.Lack of education and funds are what generally result in neglect, illnesses and injuries. Mdzananda works on educating the community while providing low cost veterinary services.
A community that loves animals is a healthy community. By looking after an animal people learn responsibility, respect for life, compassion and non-violence. These are valuable attributes which flow over into everyday life.
