Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA)

Boarding and Adoption

LSPCA has a purpose-built rehoming shelter for dogs and cattery for cats, caring for animals that have been surrendered, rescued or confiscated from roadside sellers.  After a medical examination, each animal is quarantined for thirty days to rule out any possible illnesses such as rabies (this is in accordance with national policy guidelines). Once quarantine requirements are cleared, our animals are then placed in the rehoming shelter, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for ticks and sterilised. 

Rehoming program 3

Our dogs receive clicker training and are leash walked daily whilst our cats receive regular handling and enrichment sessions with our animal carers and volunteers to provide optimum mental and physical stimulation, as well as to increase their chances of adoption. An adoption fee covers procedures and vaccines to ensure that all our animals are properly cared for before being rehomed.

LSPCA has dedicated boarding kennels, each equipped with a purpose built and raised wooden kennel and a padded bed, a small run and shelter from the rain and sun. Our animal carers attend to each and every dog ensuring they are kept in a clean, safe environment and go out for a walk and play every morning and evening.

We ensure your pet will receive all the physical and mental stimulation needed for a happy boarding experience. So, the next time you are going away on holiday or out of Lilongwe for a business trip, consider LSPCA's boarding kennels as a place to keep your beloved dogs safe and happy.
