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, 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:
Ms. Maliheh Gholinia:

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.


Vafa Team.



Shazdeh( A king's offspring in Persian)
Born 2010

I am Shazdeh, and one of the small breed dogs that came to the shelter from city of Arak on Nowruz eve of 2012. At the beginning I was very timid and tried to stay away from others. Every one and every thing scared me. Gradually I calmed down and became more sociable, but I still like to keep my distance from others. The kind volunteer of the shelter Roya looks after me very much and takes me for strolling around the shelter with a few other dogs. I truly like those walks. Kind "Ms.Mandi " is my sponsor and I am very happy for that.
