The problem of stray cats and dogs and a rabies epidemic underway in most parts of the rural areas of the Greater Accra Region is very acute. A high number of stray dog bites are recorded out of which averagely 24 were positive for rabies. As a result, most of the street dogs and cats are trapped and killed or poisoned. I was immediately driven to act to rescue these poor animals. I am actively helping to reduce the suffering of the hungry, injured and homeless cats and dogs in Ghana and advocate humane behaviour by providing food, rescue and veterinary care where needed.

Cats and dogs will be euthanized or trapped and eaten if we don't come to their help. To be able to help more cats and dogs in, we need to be able to pay for their feeding and veterinary bills that come along with them. A lot of money is needed to give these furry babies a chance they deserve.

All funds raised will be for Sancore animal rescue and shelter who are helping in rehabilitating the animals and desperately need funding right now. They are a registered non-profit organization that does fantastic work saving many animals every year. This rescue organization will put every single dollar received to great use saving as many cats and dog's lives. Proof of transfer receipts will be posted on social media so you can see exactly where your donation has gone. I want to give the rescue the best chance possible of saving as many cats and dogs as possible. I would be incredibly grateful for any donations that you can spare to help cats and dogs get out of the shelter and into warm and loving homes.

Abandoned, abused and injured, countless sweet senior and special-needs cats and dogs some torn from the only homes they have known and placed in cages to await probable euthanasia.
However, with your help, many of these animals can have a second chance.

These poor street cats and dogs struggle to find food and search for a safe place to sleep. They will never know what it is like to be petted, snuggled and loved. They must battle to find food to stay alive. They must be hoping for help. No one is coming to help them.

We will do everything we can to help these poor furry babies. I am trying to make a difference in their lives. We cannot do this alone, we need your help. We have dedicated our future into helping these animals.

Donations are needed to help fund the enormous project that we are taking on. Feeding is a daily expense that is ongoing. Veterinary visits, surgeries and medication add up fast. Every dollar counts, no amount is too small. Please help give them a small chance at sleeping without the pain of hunger, and help prevent the birthing of so many unwanted puppies and kittens.

We have taken the challenge for the benefit of the public to relieve the suffering of animals in need of care and attention and, in particular, to help Sancore animal rescue and shelter provide and maintain a rescue home and other facilities for their reception, care and treatment of such animals. There is a desperate need for a durable shelter, a used mobile veterinary clinic, surgical supplies and funding to continue the vital work. We should not need to cut each piece of gauze in half in order to make ends meet.
For every cent we raise, one dog or cat will be able to receive some feeding and veterinary care. A contribution from you, no matter the amount, will make a big difference in the life of a homeless, sick, injured or abused animal.

    Right now, dogs and cats in the Accra Metropolitan area, are enduring misery and abuse desperately need our help. These furry friends are hunted, trapped and euthanized or eaten.

    No dog or cat should ever suffer like this, and right now, you can help.

    This #GivingTuesday, you have a special opportunity to help change the life of a dog or cat in need.

    Make a gift of $1 or more this #GivingTuesday and you will be powering work that is making a tremendous difference in the lives of dogs and others. Moreover, if we receive 2,500 gifts by midnight on December 3, we will get a special gift of $20,000!

    Your generous support will allow us to do the following:

    Improve the lives of lonely stray and abandoned dogs by delivering sturdy, custom-built shelter that help them survive and possibly get adopted into forever homes—and by providing them with the compassion and care that they otherwise may never know

    We need your support and determination in order to expand our vital work, reach hundreds of suffering dogs and cats, and give more animals a chance at the happiness that every living, feeling being deserves.

    An extra $20,000 would strengthen our campaigns even more—but we will only unlock it if 2,500 our supporters make a gift by midnight on December 3.

    Will you help us meet the challenge by donating right now? Even as little as $1 will bring us closer to our goal!

    Thank you so much for your support and for helping us make the world a kinder place.

  • We will also provide veterinary care and rabies vaccinations for most of the rescued stray dogs and cats and educate pet owners about good pet care. Our work will include a massive sensitization campaign in the community prior to clinic day we plan to hold. On that day we hope to treat up to 250 dogs and cats. We plan giving rabies vaccines to 300 animals and provide basic vet care. We will treat mainly homeless cats and dogs. We intend printing and distributing education materials within the community and at some schools

  • Do you want to join us in supporting a good cause? We are raising money for the first animal rescue and shelter in Ghana and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.

  • Ghana is rife with unsterilized and unvaccinated street dogs, which usually leads to an epidemic in street puppies, most of which die.

    The mission of SANCORE Animal Rescue and Shelter is to take in street puppies and have them sterilized, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas, given any other treatment & medication that they may need, be fed good quality food to build their immunity, socialized, and rehomed. Some of these rescued puppies have a traumatic start to life and need a lot of care before they are ready for adoption.

    We also work with the community to educate them on the importance of vaccinating their dogs. Due to the high number of unvaccinated dogs, Ghana is a high-risk environment for distemper and parvovirus. These diseases are highly contagious and take many dog lives each week. The project also wants to support those who do not have the funds to vaccinate their dogs by offering vaccines at their cost price.

    We intend targeting current dog populations as we find more funds and people to help.

    The founder of the project is funding the project. We are asking for funding to help with current veterinary medical, feeding and shelter building costs. Help us to help them have a better future. Thank you!

  • Animal shelters are very important because we care for abandoned or neglected animals. We provide temporary homes for animals on the street. We also provide heath for sick wounded animals. We find homes for strays, and neglected and abused animals.
    Why Donate to and Local Animal Shelters? Pet owners understand the cost associated with caring for their pet or pets. Food, vaccinations, flea control, beds and medical assistance when needed – it all adds up far too quickly sometimes. Shelters deal with financial challenges every day. Regardless of whether the economy is up or down, abandoned and lost pets who have found their way to our shelter need the continued generosity of others for food, shelter and medical care. WE operate a “No kill” shelter, and costs can be staggering. We rely on the generosity of individuals who can donate money to help pay for everyday expenses, medical treatments and medications for those animals who are sick.
    Why donate to SANCORE Animal Rescue and Shelter? Because we need as much help as we can get to give lost or abandoned pets a temporary home until a responsible and loving home can be found. The work we perform on a daily basis has saved the lives of countless pets and will continue to do so as long as we continue to support them in our passionate cause of saving as many lives as possible. Cats and dogs don’t ask us for a lot. Yet they give us everything they have in the form of unconditional love. The least we can do for them is help us out we who have dedicated their lives to help unwanted and abandoned pets have a safe, warm home of their own, whether it be temporary or permanent.
    Please donate what you can, whenever you can –money, veterinary supplies or both if possible. The life that you save with a donation could be your own pet if he/she were to ever become lost.
