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.



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.
