We are striving to relieve stray dog and cat suffering in Iran – Join Us!

Stray dog and cat populations in Iran are increasing. Local adoption rates are very low, and methods for population control used by local authorities are brutal. We believe that spay/neuter/release is the most humane method available to lessen the number and suffering of stray dogs and cats on the streets of Iran. We raise funds and work with local volunteers and vets to treat strays – one dog or cat at a time.

Our organization is fully transparent in all its activities and transactions, and we are a volunteer-only team that tries to keep our financial overhead as close to zero as possible.

Please consider donating to our cause with the peace of mind that, under our OFAC license, we are fully authorized by the US government to collect and send funds to Iran with the exclusive purpose of supporting specific veterinarians and animal rescue groups.

Homeless animals are counting on you!
