Namibia: Have a Heart for Pets

Reinhard Redecker pleaded the case of neglected pets as part of Hitradio Namibia's, Aktion Sonnenstern last week at a public talk of the Namibia Scientific Society.

Redecker introduced the "Have-A-Heart Windhoek" campaign saying their organisation pays for the neutering of dogs and cats in Windhoek when the owners can not afford the spaying cost.
