35007376_1545225806927762_r.jpeg35007376_1545225814397941_r.jpegOur Mission To reduce suffering in the world and advocate humane behavior through providing rescue, rehabilitation, and sanctuary to abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs.

Bethlehem Animal Shelter & Administration Unit (BASAU) proposes to design, construct, operate and maintain a modern, state-of-the-art animal control shelter to provide the highest quality of rescue, care and treatment for homeless animals in the West Bank in general and Bethlehem Governorate in particular to serve all municipalities which support this project.

There are no shelters in the Governorate of Bethlehem or the West Bank (Palestine) as a whole for that matter. There are no animal control officers in any of the local governing bodies. Managing stray animals is done on a basic level by Municipalities, which simply killing the animals by way of poison.

It is important to note that an estimated 800 stray animals in the city of Bethlehem and ten thousand stray animals, particularly dogs, and cats live in the governorate of Bethlehem. A great number of them form packs and live in areas with low density habitants. They venture out to high density neighborhoods in the morning and evening hours in order to find food, which exposes both the stray animals and humans to danger. Evidence suggests that this also have a negative impact on the much needed tourism industry. Solitary strays are often abused and chased out of fear that they are aggressive or sickly. While stray packs attack domestic animals, livestock and humans alike. There are many documented cases of dogs attacking children and the adults as they head out in the early hours of the mornings or coming home late at night. In the year 2009, 20 incidents involving serious animal bites were reported as well as hundreds of less serious unreported injuries.

These strays live in constant fear and deplorable conditions. The absence of food, flea infestation and parasites could lead to more serious diseases that spread quickly and affect the human population and domestic animals alike such as rabies, heart worm, tapeworms and other pathogens. All these factors express the need to build an animal shelter that serves in capacity not only the city of Bethlehem, but the entire Governorate.
