• Our Shelter

    Nowzad proudly boasts the first and only official animal shelter in Afghanistan.

    Our well designed and purpose built shelter in Kabul provides a safe home for over 100 dogs. We also have a purpose built cat shelter housing over 30 former street cats rescued by locals or soldiers. Our work has now extended to rehabilitating former working donkeys in a peaceful and caring environment.

  • Our Clinic

    The Nowzad ‘Conrad Lewis’ veterinary clinic is funded solely by your generous donations. We employ five fully qualified Afghan national veterinarians who can now expertly perform major surgeries as required in the treatment of injured or ill animals.

    We are proud to say that three of our veterinarians are female, which is a ground breaking accomplishment in Afghanistan.

  • Education

    Nowzad provides a practical training program for the Kabul university veterinary students and para-veterinarian students to increase and promote their interaction with dogs, cats and other animals that they are likely to care for.

    Our fully ‘hands on’ workshops deliver vital animal handling experience to enrich and enhance the student training as well as providing life-saving rabies prevention techniques.

  • TNVR

    Even without the large scale funding we need Nowzad is determined to prevent the unwanted dog and cat populations to be born on to the harsh streets of Kabul.

    Where possible we are implementing our humane trap – neuter – vaccinate – return program and thanks to your amazing support we still freely vaccinate all cats and dogs for rabies that visit the Nowzad clinic.
    For our Afghan vet team this is one of the proudest and most important aspects of their job.

  • Donkeys

    Working donkeys are the life blood of the local communities in Afghanistan and Kabul is by no means an exception. Where old meets new in the city; many families have access to motor transportation whilst many more, particularly those who inhabit the surrounding mountains, do not.

    The working donkey is vital to carry supplies (water, food and building materials) to the outlying villages; including most of Kabul’s surrounding urban areas that are built on the side of the unforgiving mountain terrain.

  • Soldier rescues

    Often when brave men and women are serving in a war zone they find themselves adopting one of the many stray dogs or cats that are struggling to survive there.

    These soldiers are not only a salvation for the animal; the dog or cat are often described as 'lifelines' to their soldier, providing a respite from war, a moment of peace, home and love.

    When the soldier's tour of duty comes to an end, it is unthinkable to leave their four legged comrade that they've bonded with, behind.
