Vafa Shelter >> Sponsor Me

Sponsor me

Greetings to our dear friends and supporters,

Vafa Animal Shelter is proud to introduce and seek your support of our new path, the "Sponsor a Vafa Dog" plan.

Since the beginning of its existence despite all obstacles and difficulties, Vafa Shelter has continuously brought the gift of a peaceful and safe life to these humans' best friends. This plan predicts a better protection for these angels. Your commitment of $20 or 45000 Tomans per month, to your choice of a dog will pay for sponsoring that dog which consists of his or her healthcare, vaccinations and food.

It is important to mention that in the past we had determined this cost at around 25000 Tomans per month. But a drop in financial helps and a spike in the cost of living has affected this number.

Though, we still value and appreciate any amount of help. As it's been said; "What ever comes from the Friend is a blessing".

You can also easily go to the website of the Center for Animal Lovers/Vafa Shelter at www.vafashelter.com, click on "Sponsor Me" icon, choose your dog and send an email including your name, surname, phone number, where you live and name(s) of your desired to be sponsored dog(s) to the following volunteers:

Ms. Hengameh Samiifar: S_hengame78@yahoo.com
Ms. Maliheh Gholinia: 
Malaani_nikoo@yahoo.com

Please feel free to contact them for more info and asking your questions.

We are hopeful that with your support and encouragement we can continue to provide a better and more effective operation for our special guests.

Yours,

Vafa Team.

Dabi

Dabi
Male, Born 2014

I am Dabi, a spritzer who had a measurable life in the city of Bandar Abbas in the south of Iran. A kind person decided to rescue me from that horrible condition, and take me to Mehrshahr city of Karaj. In Karaj I stayed with a family who did not have the condition to keep me. In fact the lady of the house threatened that if they don't find another home for me, she would just open the door and let me out in the street! It was a scary night, but had a happy ending. Kind Ms. Azary came, took me , and my happy days began.

During the first days I was so scared, with any noise I would tremble! I did not like to be left alone. Gradually with the love I received in a peaceful environment, I gained confidence. Now I turned into a guard dog, and bark at any stranger! I reside in the newly fenced area of the shelter. I am so confident that I hold my head, and my tail up, and go around at the shelter and inspect every thing.

Unique
Female,Born 2014

I am the docile and beautiful small girl of the shelter. For reasons unknown to me, I was brought to the shelter after I lived with a human for a while. However I am not unhappy here. With my good demeanor and temper I am friends with all the dogs here. I play a lot with them, but with humans I am cautious and don't trust them quickly.

 
Jeff

jef

Jeff

Male,Born 2013

I was a homeless dog living in the back streets of Karaj. I was not at all aware of the dangers threatening me, such as city contractors who capture and kill likes of me! Someone made an add about me and posted it in the social media. The add asked for my rescue. Kind Ms. Mohamadi who is a friend of Vafa found me, and I lived in her house for a while. I am OK with humans. I like gentle touch, but if someone decides to play rough, my response would be a bite! When you come to the shelter come and meet me. You will see a very good looking and loving pooch.

 
Soya

Soya
Female,Born 2015
I am Ms. Soya. A very kind and docile girl with the outer fenced area as my residence. When I was brought to the shelter by a volunteer, I did not have an injury, but I was very weak and underweight. With my past rough life, I really appriciate the life here at the shelter. I ask you kind people to help my other friends who have not been as lucky as me. Those dogs who live in the outskirts of the cities and towns need help, and your kindness will be very rewarding to you.

 
Mersedeh

Mercedeh
Female, Born 2011
I am Mercedeh. I was one of the tens of puppies that were left abandoned outside the shelter. I was very lucky, because I spent all my puppy life in the home of one of the kindest of Vafa friends, Ms. Azari. When I grew big, and received all my vaccines I came to the shelter. I adapted very well to the life at the shelter from the very first day. During these years I have had a happy life. If you come to visit, you will see me in the area outside the shelter.

Mani and Mania
Brother and sister
Born 2015

We were rescued from a building site, and brought to the shelter. At the beginning we were very scared, and would not trust anybody! Today we meet with so many kind people that we have changed our view about people, and we realize that not all people are like those in the building site who were cruel to us.
We reside in Lot No. 1. We have been together from the very beginning, and we will be thrilled if someone sponsors both of us.

 
Aira

Aira
Female,Born 2013
I am Aira. I am a beautiful girl with a rough past. When I was a little puppy I was hit by a car. I endured horrendous days until a kind person found me. After surgeries, I was able to stay with my savior until my complete recovery. The problem dogs like me have is when we are small we are OK, but when we grow up we can't live in small apartments.
On behalf of all dogs I ask you kind people, don't ignore an injured dog when you see one.
If I am a healthy dog it is because a kind person stopped to help me in that gruesome situation!

Janet, Female
Born 2010

I am Janet, a respectable lady who does not mind taking a bite of people from time to time. I think dogs who don't bite are rather strange. I had a bullet in my paw, and was in severe pain. With the help of Vafa friends I underwent an operation. I thank all the kind people who helped me recover. All that said it doesn't mean I stop my occasional friendly bites!

I am used to this name now. When I first came to the shelter I would not allow anyone to come close to me. Even I would not let them undo my tight collar from around my neck. It took the volunteers a long time to get near me to open that annoying collar. Well I could not trust people because of all the bad memories and experiences that I had of humans. However you should see me now and how friendly I am with other dogs and how much I like the employees and volunteers of Vafa shelter.

Saboor

Saboor
male
Born 2013
I was found in the city of Jajrood, injured, and soemaciated that my ribs were showing from under mycoat. My paws were inflamed and infected. I was

lying down in a corner helpless, with no shelter above me. A kind person rescued me and took me to friends of Vafa. They transferred me to the Vet Clinic. I was placed under IV and antibiotics. I was fed nutritious foods,
and when I gained enough strength, I underwent surgery. The infection was so extensive that there was no other solution, but to amputate the infected limb.
After the surgery my condition improved day by day, and I am in the path to recovery. Throughout all these hardships I showed a lot of patience. That is why I was named ""Saboor" which means Patient in Persian. I like this name too! Two people were supporting me from the very beginning, and are still doing so. Diana, a kind lady from the USA and Milad in Iran.

Bad Akhlagh
Male
Born 2013

I am a bit grumpy, and do not make friends easily That is why I am named Bad Akhlagh, meaning grumpy in Persian. I have only bitten a few people! I am not afraid of big dogs, and I am the only small breed dog of the shelter who courageously strolls among the big dogs. The only fact that should be known from my past is that my Family was incompetent, and did not look after me responsibly. I was considered a homeless dog by the court, and sent to live at the shelter. I am very happy to be here. I have freedom to move around, and I get respect from them all! What is better than that?
I might even develop a good temper in future. Already I am better and calmer, but still don't like everybody. I have few friends. Let us see what happens in future.

Cheshman

The beginning of my life story you do not know, but the ending is very happy. I am the dog that was rescued from a dried up water channel around Bagheri high way in Tehran. A kind woman who was passing the area as usual noticed me and realised that I can't get out by myself. She contacted the city and the fire department to no avail. She could read in my eyes that I was worried, and begged her to rescue me. That is why she named me Cheshman which means "eyes" in Persian. She dropped me food and promised to save me. After two days she found out about Vafa shelter and Ilya and Davood two volunteers came for help, and I did my best to cooperate with them. Now I am a resident of Vafa. How I ended up in that channel is a secret I will keep to myself, but that channel led me to Vafa shelter!

My family tried everything. Nothing worked and they lost hope. They were told that I must be euthanized. My caregiver was desperate, and he brought me to the shelter. At the shelter Dr. Abedi recommended that my tail be amputated. That was done. After recovery I did not beat myself anymore, and was completely cured of that strange behavior.
