What a night we have just experienced. Raining for hours (that does not happen here), thunder, lightning, and gusts of hurricane strength winds. The first reports from the shelters tell us the sand for the middle section of the dog shelter has all been washed away and we need to replace it, and the cat shelter has been flooded. You can see more pictures of the damage here. We ask for help all the time but if you could just dig a little deeper and help us with this catastrophe we would be very thankful.

If you live in Cairo, please contact us if you would like us to collect a donation or you would like to pay direct into our bank account. 

Overseas friends, our PayPal is [email protected]



The most efficient means of donating monthly is through our partner Animal Diplomacy. 

We are also needing donations to help with monthly medical costs. Visit GoFundMe to learn more.

Another way to help us get the things we need is through Souq, an Amazon company in Cairo. You can have items delivered directly to the shelter and the animals greatly appreciate it.  If you’re interested in this please contact us for the delivery address.

Thank you.


We are in the process of updating our Adoption Page. Please keep checking back for the latest.
