Our main priority is to re-home cats and dogs from our shelter in Kabul with caring homes in Afghanistan, however at times we do have a dog or cat that may have been looked after by a westerner working or serving in Afghanistan and a forever home in the west would be the best long term solution.
An Afghan former street dog or cat will need a home where love and patience come hand in hand. It is a long road of trial and error and careful supervision, adopting an Afghan animal is not for everybody and requires a life time of commitment.
All our rescues are vaccinated (including against rabies), spayed and neutered at our clinic in Afghanistan.
At Nowzad we feel it is very important to place the right rescue with your family / home situation and we ask that you are fully honest with us when completing the home finding questionnaire. Most of our dogs or cats that need ‘forever’ homes do not readily accept other dogs already living in the home.
Our team has lived with Afghan rescues for many years and draw upon their experience to make the best decision for the benefit of the dog or cat – not the potential owner. But if you do adopt a Nowzad rescue then you can rest assured you are about to embark on many adventures together with your new four legged companion.
We ask that all potential owners of a Nowzad dog or cat commit to helping us raise the funds associated with bringing a dog or cat from Afghanistan to the west.
