Operation Ark was a partial success with the safe evacuation of the Nowzad animals and Pen from Kabul during the last few hours of Kabul airport being secured by British and American troops.
Sadly the Taliban were not willing to let our Afghan national staff leave Afghanistan even though they finally had the correct paperwork from the UK government.
The dogs and cats of Operation Ark are now safely in quarantine and holding kennels relevant to their vaccinations and DEFRA approved blood testing dates and will be available for adoption from the Nowzad website in due course. Please do not message the quarantine kennels directly. They do not have the capacity or authority to adopt out any Nowzad dogs or cats.
The list of available dogs and cats and the procedure for adopting them will be published during mid-September. Our only focus now as a charity is the safety of our staff who were forced to remain in Kabul.
Thank you for your amazing and super generous support and for understanding as we move forward into a new chapter of the Nowzad charity.
We have been overwhelmed with enquiries for our adoptions. The adoption website will be updated with our adoptable animals in a few weeks. Please check back for updates. If you have already submitted an enquiry you will be contacted in due course. Thank you.
