Adopt a Painted Dog

Covid-19 Announcement: In light of the recent government regulations, please expect a 14-working day delivery delay for your adoption pack. Please accept our apologies and thank you again for your support. 


Only 6,500 painted dogs remain across Africa, facing extinction from habitat destruction and human-wildlife conflict.

By adopting Mana you will help us support educational programmes with local communities and anti-poaching and dog relocation projects, ensuring the future of one of the most endangered mammals in Africa.

Your Painted Dog Adoption

When you adopt a painted dog with DSWF your donation supports key wildlife conservation projects. In recognition of your adoption, you will receive an initial adoption pack including a certificate of adoption, an exclusive artwork print by Matthew Polluk, and plenty of information about your adopted animal and its species, followed by email adoption updates.

Your painted dog adoption could be for yourself or as a gift for someone else and has the option of being purchased with a beautiful handmade toy by Little Ndaba, a women’s community project in Zambia.

If you choose to pay monthly for your adoption, you will be showing your ongoing commitment to this precious species and we hope you will continue your adoption for as long as possible.

Alternatively you can choose to adopt a painted dog for a year through a one-off payment, after which point we will be in touch to renew your adoption so you can continue to protect painted dogs in the fight against extinction.
