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!

First things first…….Nowzad is NOT closing down!
Yes, we are facing unprecedented challenges at this time which are stretching us to the limit but we are determined that together with you; we will overcome these issues.
So at the moment we are facing four unique challenges.
The Nowzad intern programme has been running for 3 years now here at our clinic in Kabul. We are truly grateful to the amazing supporters and team at the 353 charity who donated a truly astonishing £10,800 towards training for 2021.
The pandemic has continued to rage around us but the workload at the clinic never slowed. If anything, as the summer took shape with the winter rain storms easing and the temperatures already topping 35oC, the flow of patients arriving at our doors kept the team extremely busy.
