Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA) was started in 2008 by a dedicated group of Malawian residents and with support and funding from RSPCA International. It is the first and only animal welfare organisation in Malawi. LSPCA works to improve the welfare of domestic and farm animals across Malawi. LSPCA runs several programmes to improve animal welfare through provision of veterinary services and education.  

·    Mobile veterinary clinics – weekly veterinary clinics in the local community provide basic veterinary care and spay/neuter operations. 
·    New veterinary clinic - charity clinic to provide excellent veterinary care to all animals.
·    Rabies vaccination -  LSPCA partners with the local council to run annual rabies vaccination campaigns.

·     School education - weekly animal welfare education lessons delivered in the 52 public schools in Lilongwe.
·   Cyberkennel – rescue and rehoming programme for cats and dogs which uses foster homes and on line promotion of animals needing new homes
·     Poultry husbandry and vaccination – training local communities to vaccinate their chickens to prevent disease
· Government partnerships – LSPCA works closely with the Ministry of Agriculture to support legislative developments and with the local council on issues such as developing humane stray animal management.
·   Police training and collaboration – LSPCA is working with the police to end the roadside selling of puppies and kittens and to improve the success of animal cruelty investigations and prosecutions.
