Adopting A Nowzad Rescue

img

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of all Nowzad and Operation Ark’s supporters, Operation Ark was a huge success, bringing back to the UK 170 animals that were under Nowzad's care in Kabul.

We have a select few dogs of various ages ready for adoption. These dogs are currently in the UK. These deserving souls are looking for understanding and loving homes. Please have a look at their profiles and see if any steal your heart! Do please keep checking back as we add more to the website.

All rescued animals are listed with their photograph and full profile – as individuals, each dog has certain character traits and wants/needs so interested adopters are encouraged to read the profiles carefully before submitting an online application. If you would like to submit an application form for one of these Dogs please complete an application form.

We do not rehome our animals to:

  • Families with Children under 12 years of age
  • Our dogs cannot live with cats

We aim to process applications as soon as we can but please remember the Nowzad team is very small so please bear with us!

Thank you so much, once again, for your incredible support and compassion for these Nowzad dogs and cats.

Here are a few of our amazing rescues all happily settled and enjoying life with their new families.

Troy & PC
Yakgosh
Tilly
Trixie & Milo
Stapes
Momdog
Anita
Twiggy
Senator
Marty
Barfi
Houdini

All of our Nowzad former street dogs or cats will need a home where love and patience walk hand in hand. It can be a long road of trial and error and careful supervision is always necessary. Overcoming the Afghan animal’s very territorial nature can have its moments.

We have fully come to appreciate that adopting an Afghan animal is not for everybody as it requires a life time of commitment but could you be the loving home our companion animals are looking for?

All our animals for adoption are vaccinated, neutered, tick flea & wormed & microchipped.

The team at Nowzad feel it is very important to ensure that you and your family / home situation is right for the dog or cat you are considering adopting. Please be as honest with us as you can when you complete the questionnaire. Some of our older dogs or cats that need ‘forever’ homes may not readily accept other dogs that are already living in your home but our younger dogs will settle with the correct introduction and supervision.

These are just a selection of the amazing rescues that the Nowzad team with your generous support, have been able to achieve since the charity was formed in 2007. Please click on a rescue to read more.

Be the difference and the life for a dog or cat starting today!

Danger
Danger

We were informed of a dog by an ex-pat working within one of the many international compounds in Kabul. 

Sadly, the dog had apparently bitten someone and the person was afraid of contracting rabies. We assumed the worse and expected and so took along all of our protective gear and equipment for catching a ferocious dog.........

Eva
Eva

Eva was one of our longest residents here at the Nowzad dog shelter; she was first rescued as a young dog 7 years previously. Loving people beyond doubt she had a serious problem with other dogs and we struggled to rehome her as an only dog. 

Atel
Atel

Atel was brought to Nowzad by a concerned local Afghan man after he found her on the street with a broken leg.  With the best of intentions, he had tied rope around her injured leg in an attempt to splint it. 


 

Abby
Abby

Abby was originally sent to us for TNVR.  But once she had arrived at the clinic it was clear that she had contracted Leishmaniosis, a terrible disease caused by the bite of the sand-fly.
 

Darakht
Darakht

Darakht meaning ‘tree’ was found one morning by a member of our team arriving for work at the Nowzad clinic. Probably at only around a few months old, the poor mite had been tied to a tree outside our shelter. 

Asha
Asha

Asha was rescued by our shelter staff during the middle of winter. Huddled for warmth with her siblings she was just days old. Sadly, Asha was an extremely timid dog and always wary of people. 

Ghost
Ghost

We received a call from a concerned American at the US embassy; ‘We usually have lots of cats and dogs roaming around the Embassy and we become friendly with those that allow us to approach them, I noticed Ghost a few months back, she would come around and play with an adult yellow lab as a small pup, and gradually started approaching the Security teams.

Humphrey
Humphrey

We were on a night operation with our partner force in a small Taliban village in Kandahar. We entered a compound and heard this loud bark. Assuming there would be a large dog inside, we found the room the bark was coming from with much caution. Only to find the sweetest puppy you've ever seen. He was chained up in the tiny dirty room.

Kia
Kia

This is the message we received from the caring American who started to look out for this lonely pup; 

I am currently an English Teacher in Afghanistan, teaching Afghan soldiers. A challenging job to say the least, but one, I feel I am making a difference, despite the location and history.

I have stumbled upon a female puppy, all alone, which at first I thought, she will never make it.
