Specialized Vet Clinic to help Africas Most Endangered Carnivore.
In 2002, the PDC opened its Rehabilitation Facility. This facility has eight different enclosures plus a veterinary clinic and allows us to house and care for injured, sick or orphaned painted dogs with minimal handling until they recover enough to rejoin their families in the wild. We also use the facility to house painted dog packs that are at risk from hostile landowners and other threats, keeping them safe while we find them a new permanent home elsewhere in Zimbabwe.

Wildlife Conservation Protecting Africa.
Africa is home to some of the world's most endangered species, including the mountain gorilla, Grevy’s zebra, and Ethiopian wolf.
To protect populations from further decline, our on-the-ground safeguards involve training rangers and using sniffer dogs to stop wildlife traffickers. Wildlife must survive in their natural habitats, so we empower local communities through conservation-friendly development and work with international agencies to protect Africa’s natural resources.
Critical to protecting these vital ecosystems are people. Sharing land across the continent, local communities and wildlife often live alongside each other, leading to struggles for space and water. If people and wildlife learn to live together — inside and outside of protected areas — the future for all will thrive.
