Fele is just six weeks old, and he’s already passed all his courses in cuteness! Rescued from the street by TAWESCO, in Tanzania, he wasn’t doing too well and had a bad cold, with a fever and lots of sneezing and coughing.  With lots of good vet care, he should be all better in another six weeks, then he’ll get his rabies vaccine, and be neutered and de-wormed and will be looking for his forever home.

TAWESCO, founded several years ago by Dr. Thomas Kahema, does an amazing job helping the animals in Tanzania.  Their programs include Street Animal Health (veterinary care and spay/neuter), Working Donkey Welfare, Humane Education in Schools and Communities, and Advocacy.
