Mission

To enhance the lives of all animals in need and enrich their lives.

Notes from the nonprofit

My Story: Animal Hope Uganda is a charity that was born out of family concern for animals living in cruelty in Uganda. It was founded by Richard K Senkuba after his son was diagnosed with cancer and the family went through psychological distress. It was during this time, while at Multi-care Mary bridge children’s hospital. We met Olaf (Child life Facility dog) at the hospital bed side. We were motivated, inspired ,and comforted us as a family and gave our son hope. At this moment I started thinking about thousands of animals facing cruelty in my motherland Uganda, and the idea of enhancing and changing animal lives started right from the hospital bedside. Our Vision To create a holistic society where all animals are treated humanely.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue and Rehabilitation


We support and enhance the sheltering of homeless dogs and cats at household and community levels, this has led to a great reduction in the killing of homeless dogs and cats on roads and through food poisonings.
We do Spaying and Neutering which is very important to prevent countless dogs and cats -children without homes and food.

Rabies /diseases vaccination; Unvaccinated animals roaming in towns are suspected of spreading rabies, we have seen victim dogs beaten severely or killed after reports of dog bites. This has caused chaos and we needed to do something to protect the animals and promote healthy communities, free of rabies and other related diseases. Through this program, poor families who can’t afford vaccinations are helped (benevolent assistance )

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
