The history of present Zanzibar Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ZSPCA) was start since 1930s where first established by colonial under the supervision of Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). It deal with construction water reservoir where animals use for drinking in different areas in Zanzibar town, it deal with management of bully fighting conducted at that time in order to maintaining welfare of animals used for that activities. It was stopping working for several years until we re-establish again in 2007.

The motivation of founder (Mr. Ali Abdalla Juma) of new ZSPCA start since 2001 where he was a science subject teacher as Kwamtipura Secondary School where he establish Monkey Kindness Club, the club which run by World Animal Protection (WAP) previous known as World Society for Protection of Animals (WSPA) in different African countries and he become a teacher leader for that club.

After working for several months as teacher leader in 2002 he appointed as Coordinator for all kindness clubs found in Zanzibar (Unguja and Pemba), during his work as coordinated he establish an umbrella organization known as Zanzibar Kindness Club Association (ZKCA) the target was to register as Non Government Organization (NGO) but according Zanzibar law it fail to be registered as NGO because some of its members were government schools where NGO does not required to have such combination of membership.

For that reason new organization were established, the time when we decide the name of new organization we come across to see one of water reservoir for animal to drink opposite Ng’ambu Police Station with that name so we decide to use the same of that organization because it fulfill our need and aims of establishment of such organization.
