Swaziland

Education | Sterilisation
To date, Wild at Heart Foundation have funded over 200 sterilisations, and educated 4,167 students and 219 staff members at our partner clinic in Swaziland.

Wild at Heart Foundation’s mission in Swaziland is clear: we want to create a positive example of how best to care for your animal in order to break the cycle of mistreatment to dogs. Our work supports local communities and ensures the ethical and compassionate care of stray and owned dogs alike.

Working with a number of organisations, including Swaziland Animal Welfare Society (SAWS), Waterford College, and the Vets Association, Wild at Heart Foundation have brought together a free clinic and follow-up centre to provide much needed veterinary services. This provides vaccinations, spays, neuters, worming and general healthcare for the stray and owned dogs of Swaziland, and training for locals to create employment opportunities.

Vusumnotfo’ is a Swazi not-for-profit, community training and support organisation. Vusumnotfo’s vision is to help communities significantly improve their own social, economic and environmental conditions. We feel that their goal fits hand-in-hand with our mission, focusing on animal welfare in conjunction with communities.

Our work has ensured that thousands of dogs in Swaziland are sterilised, vaccinated, and given a chance at a better life

We have also set up education sessions for students and staff on how to care for dogs, how to develop a companionable bond, and how to appropriately discipline dogs. Bringing animal care services combined with education to a rural community will help to support care and companionship for animals, promoting the development of empathy in young children.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Wild at Heart to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Wild at Heart we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Wild at Heart to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Wild at Heart will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Wild at Heart receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
