REPORT ON SHEIKH ZAYED TNR PROJECT

ESMA signed the first official government Agreement with the municipality of Sheikh Zayed in Giza Egypt on 23 December 2018. Although many big efforts were done by rescue groups in Egypt with TNR but ESMA through the Egyptian federation for Animal welfare managed to apply and get official agreement for the first time where no poisoning or killing of Animals would take place.

Along 24 months we were able to Neuter/ Spay/ Vaccinate 3449 dogs

Agreement was signed

Number of Males done 2003

Number of Females done 1446

Number of dogs Vaccinated against rabies with Defensor 3 vaccine 3449

Number of catchers 8

Number of vets 5

Number of vet assistants 6

Fatalities 13

Number of dogs that had to be kept at ESMA facilities 107

Markings : Orange ear tag from start of campaign till Feb 2020 where we noticed some of the ear tags got broken or were easily snatched and started using yellow round ear tags till today.

Methods of Catching : Blow pipe, Net, hand handling.

The first year showed decrease in complaints and reports from hospitals for people receiving rabies vaccine shots by 48% according to the municipality.

The Second year showed decrease in complaints and reports for hospitals for people receiving rabies vaccine shots by almost 80% according to municipality.

Method of working , started with 3 months of monitoring to decide for mass gathering areas and then by complaints and reports from the complaints department of the municipality.

Responding has to be done in 48 hours and reported back to the municipality.

The board of trustees appointed its deputy to monitor and follow the project in addition to staff of the environment and engineering department from the municipality.

Monthly report is delivered to municipality with number and areas of work and report of remarks.

Big change in the response and attitude of citizens of Sheikh zayed could be noticed after the first six months of work , by the end of first year we had people from the area helping the Catching team.

After submission of the two years work report Board of trustees of Sheikh Zayed and the municipality renewed the agreement for a third year starting January 2021.

Number of dogs operated included dogs from close areas outside Sheikh zayed where we had to operate them as they roam in and out of the designated area and affected the increase of numbers reported and monitored by both official team and the TNR team.

Special thanks and appreciation and gratitude goes to the late Mr. Ahmed Sherbiny the first head of the Egyptian Federation for Animal welfare in Egypt for supporting and guiding for this project and all his help that was a corner stone for the success of this project.

ESMA proudly joined efforts with our colleagues and partners ESAF during the first year in catching and operating the dogs and continued to partner for the second year in the catching and still cooperates for the third year to demonstrate how group efforts can achieve great work.

Unfortunately the second year of the project was planned to do awareness and education in public schools to go parallel with TNR project but the COVID 19 state did not allow such much needed step to be achieved.

Many thanks goes to people and organizations that supported our project and allowed us to continue and work and achieve such success on the ground and we look forward to our third year of work to be able to achieve our goal for the first official governmental project with the Egyptian NGOs working in Animal welfare.

Urgent help needed for new cases!

Friday, December 20th, 2019

We have received a lot of new cases recently and we are struggling to take care of anything. If you can help us with these new expenses, please donate through PayPal at [email protected] or through Animal Diplomacy. These cases are urgent and will be very expensive to treat.

This puppy has multiple breaks in his front leg and will need an immediate operation and screws to fix it.
Mona was picked up over three weeks ago. While operating, the vet discovered it is not only prolapse but her bladder was out, she has tumors on her ovaries, and her kidneys were in very rough shape with one barely functioning. It was a very difficult operation that took time and effort from our dedicated Dr. Kirolos but she is in good hands. She’s currently at ESMA on a renal diet.
Per Dr. Kirolos, she has more than 25 Pellets in her body. Some of them are fully embedded in her lungs and the rest all over her chest and body. The pellets cannot be removed so we will work on healing the injuries and any infection. It is a long and expensive process but we will do all that we can for her.
This dog was run over by a train and lost its back legs,
The dog is under treatment and amputation will need to be done but not until we finish the treatment for a respiratory problem.

Pupils from both Primary and Secondary had the opportunity to visit the ESMA (Egyptian Society of Mercy to Animals) dog shelter. The pupils donated a substantial amount of money that was raised over the past year in various events. The money donated will be used to supply the animals with food and medical supplies. It was a wonderful day, as the pupils were able to interact with the animals as well as clean them.
