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!

Daily health checks are carried out by our highly experienced Afghan veterinarians; which includes the first ever female Afghan veterinarians who work at Nowzad! Any necessary treatment is carried out immediately as required.

We would love to re-home all of the dogs that end up in our shelter; firstly, to loving homes in Afghanistan where we have had great success in the past, or for those who have already been fostered or cared for by ex-pats living in Kabul, we aim to rehome them in the west.

Your donation will help ensure that we can feed all of our animals as well as keep them warm and safe, pay our Afghan staff wages (typically they earn just $350-$400 a month for extremely long hours in very harsh conditions), fund the upkeep of the shelter and facilities and make sure we have the ability to provide any medical care that our animals may need.

Thank you for making a difference with your donation for the animals of Afghanistan with no voice but yours.
