Help Save the Stray Animals Of Gaza

The Strays Of Gaza

Street animals in Gaza are suffering just as much as everyone else, but too often, they are forgotten. There are so many kittens and puppies running loose with fleas, ticks, parasites and suffering from diseases, let alone the never ending problem of malnutrition. 

How I Decided to do Something

I am only a university student, 20 years old. I don't have much money myself, but whenever I have a few spare coins, I use them to buy food for stray animals.

The animals even started recognising me when I would bring them the food!

Two years ago, when I started this whole project, it all began with a little pup, whom I named Mishka.

And her friend, Masha!

Mishka trusted me so much, and loved when I would near the gate to where she stayed. Unfortunately, about a year later, Mishka was shot and killed for no reason at all. She was the sweetest dog I've ever met, she never failed to put a smile on my face every time I saw her. I was absolutely heart broken when I learnt of her death.


One day, as I was walking in a local pet shop, I saw bird with blood all over her head and eyes. I knew it would die. The other larger budgies kept pecking at her, not giving her a moment to breathe. I told the owner I would take her, for any price at all. When I got her home, I had little hope.

Somehow, she managed, and was able to fight to recovery and now looks amazing and is very bonded to humans.

Donations would mean the world. They go such a long way with these animals, animals that everyone has forgotten.
There are so many hurt animals in Gaza. Being overwhelmed however is the last thing I want to be. I want to focus on anything we can do as a community, even if you aren't from Gaza or have never even heard of it. This is not about politics, this is about helping those who have absolutely nothing to do with any of the hardship they have seen. 

Too many a time kittens die and their mothers are forced to leave them. Too many a time dogs get diseases from paralysing ticks. I have plans of spaying and neutering the animals, but that is only until I can get enough funds.
