Makana Veterinary Clinic - Dog Sterilisation Campaign

Personal message

The Makana Veterinary Clinic is a small independent veterinary clinic based in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa focusing on welfare work and providing quality veterinary care to pet owners who have previously not had access to any form of veterinary care before. The primary focus of the clinic is to sterilise as many dogs as possible in order to reduce the number of unwanted puppies who are suffering from neglect and disease or being taken to already over crowded animal shelters where they will likely face euthanasia due to a lack of homes, space and resources. 

The Makana Veterinary Clinic was established in March 2021 by veterinarian Dr Amy Jackson-Moss. Dr Amy completed her year of Compulsory Community Service in 2019 where she became overwhelmingly passionate about welfare and community based veterinary work after seeing first hand the need for veterinary care in the impoverished areas of Grahamstown/Makhanda. During this year she also witnessed first hand the amount of dogs and cats being brought into overcrowded shelters and learnt to face the sad reality of having to euthanase healthy. 

Determined to change this, after spending a year in private practice, Dr Amy decided to embark on a new and exciting journey by opening a small private and independent veterinary practice to service members of the community who cannot afford private veterinary care. The main focus of this work is to do sterilisations as many dog owners are overwhelmed by the number of puppies their dogs are having on a yearly basis and there are simply not enough homes for all of them. The owners that are being helped are mostly unemployed and the majority are living in poverty with no access to basic human needs such as running water or electricity in their homes. The burden of having unwanted litters of puppies year after year only makes a hard life even harder. 

The Makana Vet Clinic is therefore dedicated and driven to spay as many dogs as possible and is specifically working in the Grahamstown/Makhanda area in the Eastern Cape where the clinic is located. Dogs needing to be sterilised are collected from their homes and are taken to the Makana Vet Clinic where they are spayed/castrated and then returned to their homes once they are fully recovered from the anaesthetic. All dogs that are spayed are also vaccinated, given tick and flea treatment and dewormed and this project relies entirely on the generous donations and funding from members of the public. 

Earlier this year we used this platform to raise enough money to purchase additional surgical instruments so that more spays can be done in a day. This means that the number of sterilisations done on a daily basis is no longer limited by the amount of instruments that are available. 

Dr Amy recently wrote a post on her personal Facebook page raising awareness about the number of healthy animals that are facing euthanasia in animal shelters. The post went viral and has reached people from all over the world. While Dr Amy did not write this post with the intentions of using it to raise funds, we are hoping that the increased awareness she has created about euthanasia will help us to raise an additional funds to be able to sterilise as many dogs as possible from impoverished areas in the Grahamstown/Makhanda community and reduce the number of unwanted puppies being born this Spring/Summer.

The cost per sterilisation is R750 / $50 / £40 / €45 - this includes spaying/neutering, vaccination (including Rabies), deworming and tick and flea treatment.

Makana Veterinary Clinic Support Cause

Makana Veterinary Clinic Support Cause Logo

The Makana Veterinary Clinic is a small independent veterinary clinic focusing on welfare work and providing quality veterinary care to pet owners who have previously not had access to any form of veterinary care before. The primary focus of the clinic is to sterilise as many dogs as possible in order to reduce the number of unwanted puppies who are suffering from neglect and disease or being taken to already over crowded animal shelters. 


The money raised on this platform will be used to spay dogs in the Grahamstown/Makhanda area in the Eastern Cape.
