Our mission is to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals, through rehoming, education, advocacy and other activities.
· Our Rehoming Centre in Floriana is the oldest of its kind on the Maltese Islands. Here we aim to provide an efficient rehoming service where animals are guaranteed the best possible living conditions for a kennel and people can adopt with confidence. Our aim is to build a new purpose built MSPCA Re-Homing Centre to cater for the hundreds of stray and abandoned dogs and cats on the island.
· Out Education Programme carries many messages to all that need to know them. Our aim is to spread up-to-date knowledge on responsible ownership, welfare needs, empathy, safety and population management.
· Our dog neutering campaign, jointly coordinated and financially supported by Dogs Trust, has successfully reduced the number of stray dogs in Malta and Gozo. We aim to continue maintaining this achievement by carrying on with efforts to assist people on benefits, farmers and hunters to neuter and microchip their dogs, thanks to a grant from Dogs Trust extended in 2015 After this MSPCA aims to have achieved enough support and success for this project to become self sustainable.
· By lobbying and advocacy at the local but also EU level, though our relationship with The Animal Rights Group as well as international and European organisations such as the EU Cat & Dog Alliance, to affect long term change in legislation to protect all animals from harm, be it pets or other animals in general.
