The Nowzad Dogs Animal Shelter

Adjoining our small animal clinic we also have a purpose built cattery housing nearly 30 former street cats rescued by locals or soldiers.

Our Animal Clinic

The Nowzad Conrad Lewis Clinic for small animals is funded solely by your generous donations. Our two Afghan national vets have been expertly trained by the generous support of Dr Mohammad (Mayhew International, London) and Dr Susan Chadima of Maine, USA who have both given up so much of their time to teach, oversee and support our vets to learn new valuable skills that have now seen our clinic carry out extremely necessary amputations on street dogs injured in road accidents, dentistry on cats with severe teeth problems, a tumour removal from a much loved soldiers adopted dog and of course the constant need for neutering and spaying of the stray population.
