ABHS Africa (Advanced Beauty and Health Solutions Africa) believes in being a repsonsible community partner. To that end, we support Friends of Dagoretti Children (FDC) in their efforts to support education among Nairobi youth. FDC aims to support disadvantaged families by instilling the value of education.
The KSPCA is the only charitable animal welfare organisation in Kenya that deals for the most part with domestic animals. It evolved over the years, starting sometime after 1910 when some ladies took pity on the oxen bringing goods into Nairobi from the surrounding districts. The Society as an official body started in Mombasa. At that time it was known as the East African Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Nairobi followed suit shortly afterwards. The first available minutes of meetings were recorded in 1925. Initially the society seemed more concerned with rabies control, the inspectors main task being to shoot stray dogs.
The Society started expanding when it was left a legacy in 1983 and a plot was bought in Karen, where the Headquarters is today. For the first time kennels and a small cattery were built and the work was able to expand. The two Inspectors at that time employed, went to UK for training with the RSPCA, the Donkey Sanctuary and the Humane Slaughter Society to learn about humane slaughter.
