Trap,Vaccinate,Sterilize, and Release program was created in order to help reduce the number of strays and to prevent rabies cases.
With money raised/donated for each event the SLAWS team along with volunteers will go out to the communities and treat both local and stray dogs. This program has been implemented in order to gain control and reduce the overwhelming stray population in Freetown,Sierra Leone.
Kindness Clubs were set up by SLAWS to educate children at the schools in Freetown about animal care. The SLAWS Kindness Club is part of the 750 clubs founded by World Animal Protection in 32 African countries.

As the COVID-19 pandemic takes hold of Sierra Leone, people are practicing social-distancing, avoiding beaches & restaurants and trying to stretch resources. A side-effect of this is that many dogs and cats will go hungry.
Let’s not forget about the hungry and helpless animals during this difficult time. Please try to spare some food and water if you can.
