Eugene and Teddy

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 names are Eugene and Teddy. We were found wondering the streets of Kabul by a nice couple. We were lucky enough to have them take us in, feed us, pet us and show us that people can be trusted. During this time, we all became extremely attached to one another. Teddy was looking for a buddy to hang out with, and he found me and we became close friends. We were both looking for someone that would care of us and love us, and we both found this couple. They are trying to raise money to send us to their home in the US where we will live safely and comfortably with the family of pets there which includes two other cats from Afghanistan. Can you help?

Question: How is the money I donate spent? How do I know it is used to help an Afghan stray companion animal? Can my donation go towards a specific animal? Answer from Nowzad: As a charity we are bound by the strict auditing regulations demanded by the UK charity commission. The board of trustees make sure the money is used to maximum effect in making a difference to the lives of animals in Afghanistan, which includes the daily running costs of the Nowzad Afghan shelter, rescue transport costs, animal food and medicines (including vaccines) and of course our Afghan staff wages. If, for whatever reason the companion animal rescue is not successful (disease or injury) then Nowzad will use the money collected on this Go Fund Me page to support the daily running of theNowzad shelter "“ if you are not happy with our policy then please do not donate as we are unable to offer refunds. Donating via Go Fund MeMAY NOT be tax deductible. Please visit the Soldiers' Animals Companion Fund if you wish to make a tax-deductible donation from the US. If you have any further questions about how to donate then please just ask [email redacted] We would like to make everybody aware that this Go Fund Me page is not the only method that is being used to fund raise for the rescue costs associated with this companion animal from Afghanistan. The total required for a companion animal to travel to north America is on average $4000 (we make no profit and everything is subject to currency valuations and fuel prices on the day). To try and reflect the donations received from sources such as the Soldier's Animals Companion Fund www.sacfund.comor via direct PayPal transfers, you may see the total amount required for this particular Go Fund Me less than the $4000 average. If you need further explanation then please just ask! Nowzad Dogs is a registered charity (non-profit) 1119185 in England and Wales and 501c3 non profit in the USA.
