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.

Agha Shir

agha shir-s

I am Mr. Shir
Agha Shir( Mr. Lion in Persian)
I am Mr. Shir and from Gilan province. The kind Sponsors who were after our transfer from the city of Rasht called me Mr. Lion because I was always serious and acted as leader of other dogs. 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.

I am already sponsored kindly by "Ms.Saghi".
