Who we are :- The Nowzad mission statement is; 'To relieve the suffering of animals in Afghanistan; including companion animals, working equines, stray and abandoned dogs and cats and all other animals in need of care and attention, and to provide and maintain rescue, rehabilitation and education facilities for the care and treatment of such animals with no voice but ours'
Our work in Afghanistan to make a difference for all the dogs, cats and other animals with no voice but ours started from one man’s efforts to make a difference for one dog at a time in a place that was back then described as the most dangerous place on Earth... Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
TODAY we have reunited over 1000 soldiers with the dogs and cats that they rescue and bond with on the front lines in Afghanistan and we continue to be there for the brave men and women who show compassion to animals during their deployment.
Nowzad operates the only official animal shelter in the whole of Afghanistan and is supported by a modern veterinary clinic staffed by a team of Afghan nationals delivering care and attention to animals in distress. Our vital work in Afghanistan now includes animal welfare education and the prevention of the spread of rabies.
I received this sad note from someone who is trying to help this poor kitty find a new home. "Hello,
I am writing this email in regards to Mya, a domestic short haired black cat with green eyes, currently living in South Milwaukee, WI. She is 6 years old. Mya started peeing in the house 4 years ago after having a declaw procedure done to her front paws because the mom was pregnant.
Mya started peeing outside the litter box and on all of the babies clothes after she had the baby. After Mya started peeing, the vet told her it was because of territorial issues, not the declaw.
After 2 years of this, the family then got a German shepherd who tried to attack Mya.
Because of this, Mya has been living in the basement for 1 1/2 years.
The family is moving, and needs to find a new home for Mya within the week.
From what the family says, she is a loving cat who adores attention from everyone. "
If you live near South Milwaukee, WI and want to give this poor little kitty a second chance, please email me asap to email@example.com
If the family can't find a home for her they will take her to a shelter and most likely she will be euthanized. She doesn't use the litter box so most likely her paws are in pain from the declaw. The family is trying to get the x-rays of her paws for me to see if she has bone chips.
The vet who did the declaw uses the guillotine method. When a cat owner asks for a price of a neuter and is there anything else they recommend, this practice asks if you want a declaw also and that it's $250 for a front declaw or $288 for all four paws. They say the vet does declaws weekly. They also recommend using @Purina 's Yesterday's News cat litter and sell bags for $8.
If you want to help end this animal cruelty that is done to around 5000 cats a day in America, please sign the petition to Purina that is on the link on my bio. Purina is making millions of dollars from declawing.
Also BOYCOTT vets who declaw cats!! #useyourvoice#speakup#please#help#pawsneedclaws
Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose - we are very excited that our state of the art kitchen at J.Davis House (along with appliances, bathroom and kitchenette) is finding NEW HOME and purpose at the brand new CNIB GTA Community Hub at Yonge and St. Clair.
