Living in a country where animals are viewed as disposable objects, abused, tortured, and killed every day, fighting for their rights, saving, and protecting them is a losing battle. In our country, most dogs live on chains their whole lives, up on a roof, or in a "garden". They eat scraps and are solely used for breeding and "protection". Strays are poisoned, shot, and killed in most brutal ways. 


Seeing all this, we decided to open a dog shelter, where we rescue, rehabilitate, and help the Lebanese dogs find forever homes abroad. 




We run a dog shelter that currently homes more than 80 dogs that were in miserable conditions. Our shelter consists of a spacious indoor area where the dogs sleep safe from the heat, cold, and rain - and 4 spacious outdoor playgrounds where they can run and play as much as they want. We are a cage free, all day roaming shelter. So our dogs are free to enjoy their day doing whatever they like. We also have a quarantine area, and isolated areas for scared, or sick dogs. Our shelter is surrounded by a beautiful forest which we take advantage of by walking the dogs and organizing dog walks! It is a very calm area, perfect for a temporary home for dogs until they get adopted!




We want to rescue and home as many dogs as possible. We want to be able to offer a safe space for dogs to spend their days being taken care of and fed until they find their forever families.

To be able to continue our work, having a shelter is a must. We need to be able to pay rent in order to keep this beautiful safe haven available for the dogs under our care. We have been evicted once before and it was truly heartbreaking and devastating for the dogs. We need to secure a safe, clean, and ethical place for them to spend their days. As finding homes in Lebanon is extremely rare, most dogs will spend their entire lives in the shelter, we cannot let them down!


We solely rely on donors, and are now counting on you!


There is no government funding for animal charities in Lebanon, and we rely on the generosity of donors to help us care for all the disadvantaged, abused, and unwanted animals in our care.


Unable to donate? You can still help!


Even if you can’t spare any cash for a donation, you can still make a big difference to our campaign by spreading the word!
