Bam Animal Clinics is an animal welfare/health charity organization founded in August 2009. It was birthed out of love and concern for pets living in the hands of cruel "masters", those that had no homes and spent their entire lifetime on the streets, scratching through the garbage for a bone and also the concern about the lives of other domestic animals living in poor conditions.
Before the organization's formation, the founder DR David Balondemu worked with the department of veterinary services in Iganga district, he recalls the number of cases presented at the office then regarding dogbites and how the victim dogs were treated , either killed or beatten severely and consequently isolated. There was total chaos and something was to be done.
In 2008 they joined hands with five colleagues and were tasked to keep moving to communities to sensitize and educate communities about how best they needed to keep and manage their animals and the benefits there after. In 2009 we joined a bigger campaign against animal cruelty formed Bam Animal Clinics, and registered it as a Non Governmental Charity organization . Since then we have had thousands of dogs, cats and other animals rescued from the streets, re-homed, treated, spayed and neutered and have adopted several disease control measures.
We have since written articles on animal cruelty, pressed politicians to incorporate animal rights enhancement in our manifestos, especially the right to health and fair treatment, and had animal treatment measures incorporated in Iganga Community work plans.
We have been able to partner with several organizations in a bid to strenthen our grip on widenning the scope of addressing the welfare/health of animals in Uganda.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of all animals through increased public awareness as well as impacting the living environment of communities in Uganda.
Having an effective coordinated work aimed at restoration of the dignity for the wild, domestic and pet/ companion animals in Uganda, through increased levels of awareness and management of animal welfare and health.
Bam Animal Clinics as an organization was founded in August 2009. It was birthed out of love and concern for pets living in the hands of cruel "masters", those that have no homes and spend their entire lifetime on the streets, scratching through the garbage for a bone and also the concern about the lives of other domestic animals living in poor conditions.
Before the organization's initiation in 2009, it took us 5 years working to rescue and advocate for the need to protect pets in Iganga Community. We have written articles on animal cruelty, pressed politicians to incorporate animal rights enhancement in our manifestos, especially the right to health and fair treatment, and had animal treatment measures incorporated in Iganga Community work plans.
These success stories are recorded throughout the organization's program areas and treatment centers.We continue to see many people join our campaign against animal cruelty, we see many households and communities get involved and continue to receive reports on the need for our services. Unfortunately, we can only go as far as our resources can stretch us.
The organization head offices have been set up in Iganga community, where the vision to end animal cruelty was first launched. We are yet to see communities changed as they experience the joy they get from the true company of their pets, once seen as victims to exploit and problems to avoid.
Bam Animal Clinicss works in a region where animals have no rights, and people have not been informed well about animal management and care, its benefits and the dangers of neglecting animals.
Our goal is to rescue, protect and improve the lives of animals in Uganda. In order to achieve this goal, the organization puts into consideration a number of activities and guiding principles.malclinics
