Goals and Needs:-
Is to Sensitize, Educate,Protect and improve the general welfare and health of the Animals. In order to achieve this, Bam works along these strategies:-
Permanent residence : For many years , we have not been having our own buildings instead because of our good work , the department of animal health at Iganga offered to accommodate us but the space is very small owing to the challenges of many animals brought for our care and the organizations other activities. We therefore need land even 1acre is enough for the start to construct our official clinic.
We can have a training block for the training program especially for cpd and for the communities.
Sensitization : one or two motorcycles are very essential especially when we need to reach out to far places for a sensitization program
Education: A training program where we train in-services Vets and paravets . We realize its very important to refresh the minds of most practitioners to be able to handle most challenging tasks in animal treatments and management. We will need A car(Second hand better) for outreach programs , a hall on the land purchased for onsite trainings, a generator , a video camera, power point board , a projector,
Rescue: We have a program to rescue and provide homes to homeless dogs and cats and other homeless animals, be able to provide essential requirements like food as they a wait for permanent homes.
Spay and Neuter : Our clinic have a lab room and we will need , A microscope , a centrifuge , A fridge for vaccines , we need more surgical kits , Drugs eg Anesthetics , Antiotics, Antiseptics , fluids , ,,,
Treatments: Antibiotics , Antihelminths , Pour-ons for treating mange and ticks on dogs and cats esp.
Bam Animal Clinics is a Non-Governmental and Non-Profit Organization effectively working to restore the dignity of wild and domestic animals in Uganda. Our efforts are geared towards sensitization and education on animal rights and care, treatment, and rescuing neglected and homeless dogs and cats, finding them a place they can call home.
BAM works in a region where animals’ rights are not fully understood by communities. People are not aware or informed about animal welfare and care, its benefits and the dangers of neglecting animals.
Our goal is to sensitize, educate, train, protect and to improve the general welfare of animals. In order to achieve this, BAM puts into consideration a number of activities and guiding principles as seen hereunder:-
We encourage skills training and skills transfer to our welfare officers through practical and theoretical trainings.
We put and enhance the sheltering of homeless dogs/cats at household and community levels. This has led to a great reduction in the killing of homeless dogs and cats on roads through food poisoning and accidents.
Have established veterinary networks to continuously supply information and awareness to the population regarding pets’ purposes and management through seminars and workshops have harmonized 6 districts in the Eastern region to undertake this program as pilot project.
Have a handful of ready to train Vets and paravets, plus community animals’ welfare individuals around the region.
We have been sensitizing communities on animal birth control methods to reduce on over proliferation. In addition, we have adopted spaying and neutering programs at different designated program centres and these are called Spay/ Neuter clinics.
We have taken further steps in educating the population about the dangers of having stray and homeless, unvaccinated dogs and cats on radios, in markets and sometimes from home to home. In this our major area of concern in scaling down the rate of rabies spread (a zoonotic diseases) a disease which has caused a great number of deaths in the region, devastated families and entire communities.
