The KSPCA Arboretum Dog Walk

THE KSPCA ARBORETUM DOG WALK

on

WORLD ANIMAL DAY

SATURDAY 04 OCTOBER 2014

 

The KSPCA (Kenya Society for the Protection and Care of Animals) is holding a Dog Walk on Saturday 4th October 2014, at the Nairobi Arboretum to raise awareness for its many good causes.

These causes include:

  • the rescue, shelter  and rehoming of abused and abandoned animals
  • Rabies vaccination campaigns in low income communities to ensure a healthy animal and human population
  • ensuring humane slaughter of domestic animals through stun guns
  • education in schools and communities on animal welfare
  • neutering campaigns to reduce overpopulation of cats and dogs

The Society is reaching out to the Nairobi city dwellers who own dogs to bring them out for a fun day out, on a structured 3km walk within the Arboretum. The walk will be held between 9am and 2pm.

There will be wide information available on how to look after dogs and cats, and veterinary officers will be on hand to answer questions from the participants.

Resolution Insurance will also be on the ground, to advice families how to live with their pets in a healthy way. They will also do some wellness checks.

An entry fee of ksh 200/- for adults, and ksh 50/- for children will apply. All dogs will come in for free.

Dog owners are requested to bring their dogs on a short leash, and to ensure that they have their latest vaccinations.

Transcript of the speech, exactly as it was delivered by High Commissioner Dr. Christian Turner on Queen’s Birthday Party, Nairobi.

"Waheshimiwa, mabibi na mabwana, habari za jioni. Ni furaha yangu kuwakaribisha nyote sherehe hii ya Kuzaliwa kwa Malkia

It is once again my privilege to welcome you all here this evening, to celebrate her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday. It is however in light of the tragic events of recent days an occasion tainted with great sadness. I would like to propose that we now observe a minute’s silence for the victims of the appalling attacks in Mpeketoni.

JUDGMENT-HIGH COURT MISC APPLICATION NO. 183 OF 2014 (TINTED WINDOWS)

To all the drivers/owners of private cars, please do not be harassed on account of tinted windows. 

Based on rule 54A of the Traffic rules, the High Court has ruled that the directive of Inspector General of Police (ordering private motor vehicles with tinted windows be impounded) be moved into court for the purposes of being quashed with immediate effect. What this means is that the order was  declared null and void, unless the IG appeals. 

The Court further prohibited the IG whether by himself, his agents or persons acting under him from impounding private motor vehicles with tinted windows pursuant to the said directive or in any way effecting the same.

You can peruse the attached judgement.

SPONSOR AN ANTI-POACHING DOG

AND HELP PROTECT OL PEJETA'S RHINOS AND ELEPHANTS

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary, has dedicated itself to safeguarding this endangered species and more. In the face of increasing poaching pressure in Kenya, Ol Pejeta  is constantly evolving new and innovative ways to upgrade its security.  While the overall answer to the poaching crisis would be diminished demand for ivory and rhino horn, this is a more long-term goal. In the meantime, it is vital that conservancies hold the line. Current wildlife populations must be kept steady or face extinction. To this end, Ol Pejeta has established an anti-poaching canine unit. This is a well-trained canine force primed to counteract the poaching menace that threatens the very existence of Africa's most majestic animals.  The unit is comprised of tracker, patrol, assault as well as multi-role dogs and their specialized handlers. They are crucial to the work of conservation.
