Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are tools and accessories worn to guarantee users' safety and health protection. Typically, PPE is worn when there's a risk of exposure to health and safety hazards. Workers wear PPE to protect themselves from physical, mechanical, electrical, and other workplace hazards.
Animal Rescue has no exception from PPE, without no protective gears animal rescuer might put their life and the animals their recuing in danger. We're all aware that on August 25th our Founder Mr Abbas Mvungi experienced a rib injury while trying to rescue a puppy under a culvert tunnel because he didn't wear protective gears. In most cases we rescue the injured, sick, abused, neglected or homeless animals in various hazardous environments that requires a dedication of team work and the right gears for the mission to be performed safely and successfully. Some of the animals have already faced past traumatic experience from Humans so they got very scared when approached, their best option is run, fight or to hide in places which are hard to reach without the right tools.
