Our projects

Stray dogs and TNR project

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)  is a method of humanely trapping stray dogs, spaying or neutering them, and releasing the dogs back. TNR is promoted by several international animal welfare organizations as a humane and effective alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing stray animal populations.

While this may seem like a slow way to control or eliminate their ability to breed and thus gradually reduce their numbers, this is the only method of stray dog control that works in long-term. The basis of a TNR program is to catch the dogs and take them from the area where they are living. In the TNR centre, the dogs will  be castrated or spayed, treated for zoonotic diseases, vaccinated and also marked to prevent re-caught. After recovery, the dogs will be put back where they were found. This along with educating the local community  is what makes this project to work.

We would like to maintain a regular number of sterilizations of stray dogs every month and each year we aim to increase our previous years achievements. 

Please note, these numbers are only possible if we receive adequate financial support through donations.

Benefits of a TNR project:

  • Controlling and reducingthe overpopulation of stray dogs in a humane way instead of poisoning, shooting or ignoring the problem
  • Reducing aggression and territorial behaviors
  • Reducing zoonotic diseases and improving public health

We would like to start this project with the affiliated animal rescue shelters in Iran.

If you would like to support this cause and help us reduce the overpopulation of stray dogs in Iran, please go ahead and donate.  Every donation will be used to improve the situation of stray dogs in Iran.

 

Feeding Program

Besides providing resources like medications, vaccinations, spay/neuter programs and rehoming, another important part of our work is to feed stray and shelter dogs. Developing an appropriate feeding program that is practical to implement and still meets the nutritional needs of the dogs. Most of the dogs have known sadness, cruelty, starvation and poor health and have only known a life of neglect and abuse.

Dog rescue shelters are having a hard time keeping up with the increase of dogs and feeding them is becoming more and more difficult.
With your generous donation we will provide our resources to the affiliated animal rescue shelters and rescue workers in the field to maintain a feeding program on a daily basis. In the near future, we will implement our feeding programs along with spay/neuter programs and support of other welfare organizations and volunteers to other animal rescue shelters in Iran. 

Every donation goes towards feeding the dogs and we could not do this work without generous donations from animal lovers like you. We are also always in need of “field feeders” to keep the dogs fed. For more information please contact us.

Thank you so much for supporting us, your donation means the world to the dogs we care for.
