Riaan Smit Have A Heart

Established in 2013, Have A Heart Namibia has been dedicated to making a difference in the lives of pets and their owners. We provide free sterilisation, vaccination, and parasite treatment to dogs and cats from low- and no-income homes, because we believe, and have seen, that sterilisation is the only way to fight the overpopulation of cats and dogs in our country. Our efforts prevent suffering, and it lightens the load on countless communities.

Over the past 11 years, we’ve made a significant impact, touching the lives of 21,800 cats and dogs, as well as their owners. None of these pet owners will ever have to worry about the financial burden that comes with unwanted litters ever again. The cats and dogs that have been sterilised will also live longer, and healthier lives.

Cats and dogs that have been sterilised are less prone to wandering. It decreases aggression towards humans and other animals, and it even prevents an array of cancers.

This year, we are incredibly excited and honoured to welcome the legendary Riaan Smit to our team, as our local ambassador.

Not only is Riaan an exceptionally gifted musician with a charismatic voice, but he also has a big heart for animals. At home, he is a dad to two cats, and two dogs.

When we approached him, in the hopes of partnering with us, he jumped onboard with a smile.

Have A Heart Namibia has never been short of clients, but with Riaan by our side, we hope to raise even more awareness locally, as we always have room for another partner or two, to help us reach new heights.

Being a non-profit organisation, we are in constant need of volunteers, and donations, and we thus look forward to sharing Riaan’s stage, and creating even more awareness around our ‘pawsome’ cause.
