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.

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!

Kind "Ms.Mona.A" is my sponsor and I am very happy for that
