Providing a safe home
Nowzad proudly manages a dog and cat shelter in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Our well designed and purpose built shelter in Kabul provides a safe home for over 140 dogs and have also purpose built 3 cat rooms housing over 40 former street cats rescued by locals or soldiers.
Normal dog food brands that you could buy in the west are often hard to come by in Afghanistan and so we feed our dogs daily with a scientifically researched recipe to obtain the correct nutritional balance – it looks a lot like soup but the dogs just love it! (rice, naan bread, meat, carrots and potatoes). The dogs are also exercised in purpose built dog runs.
Our Afghan staff take great personal pride in the welfare of all our animals and some even now have adopted dogs of their own!
