Our Shelters

ESMA currently runs 2 no-kill facilities:


Dog shelter in Sakkara, Giza

The dog shelter is located at Villa El Bab El Ali on Sakkara Tourist Road. From Haram (Pyramid Road) or over the MounibBridge, take the exit “Sakkara, Badrashin.” Once on the Sakkara tourist road, Maryoteya, reach the Madina Academy building, then take the first right turn. Stay on this road until you reach the end and turn left. Sakkara Country Club will be on your right. The other landmark to look for is the Medina Horse Riding Club just 1km before ESMA. Follow this road and pass three mosques on the left. 100 meters after the third mosque is the entrance to the ESMA dog shelter.



Cat shelter in Shabramont, Giza

Al Mansoureya Rd, Nazlet Al Ashtar, Giza, Giza Governorate, Egypt


Most of our animals were rescued from the streets in cases of severe injury, abuse, and neglect. We are currently providing food, shelter and medical care to over 1000 animals.

Due to space considerations we can only accept Emergency Cases.

To visit one of our shelters for the first time, please make arrangements in advance so that an ESMA representative can give you driving directions and meet you there.

To arrange a visit please contact Mrs. Mona Khalil:
