AVOID BACKYARD BREEDERS!

Also known as puppy or kitten mills, these backyard breeders have been cropping up all over Egypt for many years. Breeding is a seedy operation where hundreds of animals continue to suffer. They are little more than breeding machines, chained for what seems like eternity in dirty, dire conditions.
 
Many years ago, we were notified of, and rescued a beautiful German Shepherd tied to railings in a stairwell, acting as little more than a puppy-making machine. The rescued dog was unable to walk properly, due to his being forced to breed every single day.
 
If you know of any backyard breeders please contact us.


Pet Cats
Many Egyptians enjoy the company of these independent, graceful creatures. However, many cats are being left to fend for themselves as their owners simply decide to move on with their lives without them.
 
Abandonment
Though cats are in general more independent that dogs, obviously a lot of care goes into raising a cat.
 
Most Egyptians do not spay or neuter their pets, and cats multiply at an alarming rate: a cat can produce an average of 3 litters in 1 year, with 4-6 kittens per litter. In about 7 years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats. This results in a slew of unwanted kittens that are either left to roam the streets or are brought to the Shelter.
 
Though some cat owners do try to find homes for new kittens, many of them let the cats go on the city streets, or bring them to the shelter, under the pretense that they will return to take them later.
