Community News: Get Involved with the Animal Rescue League



Are you an animal lover? Would you like to get involved in helping the street animals of Dakar? Then the LPA is for you!

The Animal Rescue League, also known as the Ligue pour la Protection des Animaux (LPA), is a non-profit association that has been dedicated to the welfare of animals in Senegal since 2012. The LPA is led by volunteers and relies on private donations.


Our mission is to:

  • Vaccinate and sterilize street dogs and cats. Rabies vaccinations reduce the risk to humans and sterilizations decrease the number of street animals

  • Raise awareness and engage the population on issues relating to animal welfare

  • Provide care and assistance for injured street animals through local neighborhood groups

  • Find forever homes for animals that have been rescued and cannot be returned to the street


Join us and become part of the solution!

  • Make a donation (money/time/food)

  • Join as a member

  • Volunteer to help with short or long-term projects

  • Become a host/foster family

  • Adopt our animals

  • Sterilize the animals in your neighborhood

  • Invite us to schools to raise awareness

  • Join your neighborhood LPA WhatsApp group


The LPA is currently inviting new members to join by filling in this form (English) or this form (French) and paying a small membership fee. From November 9th, we will be accepting candidates for the members of the governing board. Please see our Facebook page for details and consider running! Only members can vote; elections will be held on December 11th.
