On the 15th August as the Taliban retook Afghanistan as the US withdraw, the Nowzad charity commenced Operation Ark – the evacuation of People and Animals from Kabul. 67 staff plus Nowzad founder Pen Farthing and 94 dogs and 68 cats undertook a hazardous journey to escape Afghanistan.
Some Nowzad staff chose to remain behind and they continue to manage the Nowzad donkey sanctuary whilst we gain permission to continue to run our working donkey programme.
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, and to provide and maintain rescue, rehabilitation and education facilities for the care and treatment of such animals with no voice but ours
