Adopting A Nowzad Rescue

img

We will shortly be updating our adoption page - please do check back to see our lovely dogs and cats that are looking for their forever homes. In the meantime we have beautiful Nari cat who is looking for her special forever home. Please complete the adoption form if you feel you can offer her a loving safe home. Thank you.

All rescued animals are listed with their photograph and full profile – as individuals, each animal 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 animals 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.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ONE OF OUR DOGS PLEASE COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FORM OR EMAIL ADOPTIONS@NOWZAD.COM

Former Rescues

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!

Dasher
Dasher

Suffering and in pain; Dasher was discovered by a local Afghan (around Christmas time) with a severe injury to the left side of his head. Thankfully it looked so much worse than it was and our team wasted no time in setting him on the road to recovery. The boy liked to jump and as it was the festive season when we rescued; he was soon named Dasher…

Madhuri
Madhuri

During our first lockdown we received a call from the US embassy here in Kabul, they had found a dog wandering the grounds with a severe trauma wound to one of her eyes. Our team was dispatched and a rather ragged looking dog arrived at the Nowzad clinic. Sadly, the injury to the eye was too severe for us to be able to treat and she became a one eyed dog.

Saved from the streets of Kabul after a horrific road traffic accident, Khushbakht meaning ‘Lucky’ only just survived. We had no choice but to completely remove both of her back legs.

The Farah Pups rescue!
The Farah Pups rescue!

These puppies were rescued along with their mum Riri by some determined soldiers in a land too harsh for them to survive.

The fate of this family had they not met their soldier saviours would have been uncertain to say the least. However, thanks to an extraordinary fundraising effort by the Nowzad Family and help from our friends at No Dogs Get Left Behind, they are now living the American Dream.

Here are their before and after ‘tails’!

Ranger CAT
Ranger CAT

Ranger's Soldier Saviour says:

This little Ranger cat was going from dumpster to dumpster trying to get some food in the freezing winter in Gardez, Afghanistan.

She would spend her nights near the diesel generators on the base to stay as warm as possible.

Meet three of our current soldier rescues!
Meet three of our current soldier rescues!

Nowzad is extremely busy supporting soldier rescues; here are three of the current rescues;

Raisin

Raisin's Soldier Saviour says; 'I found Raisin about a few days after Thanksgiving, here in Bagram. She was in a drainage pipe under one of the towers I maintain. She would come close but not enough to pet. She was young, little, and unsure of what this human wanted. She wouldn’t eat the cheese, bacon, or turkey I left her. This went on for a few days. 
Finally, one day as I visited her, I was eating my favourite cookie; oatmeal raisin.  She came closer, ate a little bit (without raisins) and proceeded to not only come close enough for me to pet, but followed me to my truck.  She loved that cookie for sure, so I named her Raisin. 

A story of courage, determination and hope!

We recently received a call about a young dog that had been hit by a vehicle and had been left to die by the side of a road with two broken legs.  The resilient little dog somehow endured her injuries and she learnt to walk and survive without the use of her two dead back legs. 

Asir
Asir

Asir found his own way to the Nowzad clinic one day! We don’t know how he knew but he was found at our front gate with a severely injured paw. 

Kazan
Kazan

Kazan dog is a Dutch Shepherd who worked tirelessly in Iraq and Afghanistan for over 12 years preventing attacks.  Thankfully, when he started to show signs of slowing down, the company he was owned by offered him up for retirement adoption.
