Maun Animal Welfare Society aims to improve the lives of domestic animals by providing free veterinary services and educational programmes in and around Maun, Botswana.
We welcome vets and vet nurses year-round who travel to Maun to volunteer with us. From our purpose-built veterinary clinic, we:
- undertake routine sterilisations and administer vaccinations
- provide life-saving emergency treatment or humane euthanasia to animals beyond help
- reunite, rehome and rehabilitate lost, found and stray animals
- provide an emergency first-response service to injured livestock
We also conduct outreach clinics, specifically targeting rural areas where villagers live side-by-side with wildlife. Our outreach work brings vital veterinary care to remote locations and helps to prevent the transmission of rabies and canine distemper: diseases which can decimate wildlife including the endangered African Wild Dog as well as lions, leopards and cheetahs.
