To relieve the suffering of animals in Afghanistan; including companion animals, working equines, stray and abandoned dogs and cats and all other animals in need of care and attention.
Working donkeys and horses 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.
Our well designed and purpose built shelter in Kabul provides a safe home for over 150 dogs. We also have a purpose built cat shelter housing over 40 former street cats rescued by locals or soldiers. Our work has now extended to rehabilitating former working donkeys in a peaceful and caring environment in what is a first for Afghanistan; the Nowzad donkey sanctuary!

You did it – we did it!!! The Nowzad charity is beyond happy to confirm that Operation Ark was a roaring success in its mission to rescue both 'people and animals' from Kabul.

We want to start by thanking our wonderful supporters for their patience over the past week. It has been a week fraught with shock, distress and, at times, elation.
