Welcome to Save Our Animals DRC


Sauvons nos Animaux is an association active in the Democratic Republic of Congo in animal protection since 2014 and is recognized as a public utility by the Congolese government.

The main objective of the association is to improve relations between humans and animals, taking into account their mutual well-being and the place of animals in our society. Sauvons nos Animaux has its own shelter for lost, seized, and abandoned dogs and cats.

We believe that all animal life has the right to respect. 

The refuge is located in Mudusa, village of Cirhagabwa, 8 km from the city of Bukavu. Built, the refuge is spread over one hectare, and includes a cattery and dog enclosures, and a make-shift vet clinic and kitchen.

Often, dogs and cats arrive at the shelter in a deteriorated health and/or emotional state. It is then up to us to put them back on their feet by providing them with the care adapted to each one.

Six employees work full time to take care of the animals.

The shelter generally welcomes around 100 dogs and 40 cats throughout the year.

Each year, no less than 80 dogs and cats find a new family.


Do you want to sponsor a dog or cat from the shelter?

Do you have a crush on a dog from the shelter but you can't adopt it or be a foster family? You can sponsor it! With 20 € per month you can meet part of his food and veterinary needs. So let your heart speak...

Sponsorship is a more concrete form of financial donation. It allows you to specifically sponsor an animal or a cage.

By becoming godfather or godmother of a dog or a cat of the shelter, you receive information on the animal and we keep you informed of its evolution at the shelter, in particular via a Facebook group.

  Sponsoring an animal costs €30 per month.

  Sponsoring a cage costs €500 per year.

For security and organizational reasons, it is not possible, in normal times, to come and take out the dog you are sponsoring or to be in contact with the chosen cat. We organize one day per year reserved for godfathers and godmothers for this purpose.
