PDC Rehabilitation Facility: Mpindo Pack
Our Rehabilitation Facility was established in October 2002 to cater for any eventualities concerning the sick or injured painted dogs, to house orphaned and compromised individuals and packs. Our firm belief in taking action and the importance we place on every individual could not have been easier realised without the facility.
We have taken many painted dogs in hopeless situations into the facility and successfully cared for them and released them back into the wild, such as Vusile, and they lived very meaningful lives after. For Vusile’s full story click here.
This time around it’s the Mpindo Pack. Threatened with fatal harm and/or death by angry villagers who had lost their goats to the pack since it had denned in a communal land, there was no other safer place for the two painted dogs and their 3 weeks old pups. We brought the pack into a new home, our Rehabilitation Facility. Today the pups are growing and healthy. They will be released back into the wild where they belong in early December. A time when we believe they will have a better chance of survival. Watch the space for more updates.
In meantime please join John Lemon, the man who built the Rehabilitation Facility, as he hosts our Executive Director Peter Blinston and Senior Tracker Jealous Mpofu for a fundraising dinner dubbed An Evening of Art and Conservation in Fremantle, Perth on the 10th November.
