SOHANAK ANIMAL SHELTER IN IRAN
Organized by: Maryam Majidi
Sohanak Animal Shelter was established by a group of individual volunteers in 2006. We are located in north-east Tehran in the Alborz mountains. The shelter takes care of stray or homeless animals, mostly dogs. Volunteers would rescue stray dogs and bring them to the shelter when there is information about any planned extermination by the Tehran city authorities. Members of the public would also bring sick and injured strays for care at the shelter. The shelter receives financial and material donations from private individuals. Regretfully there is no State funding for animal shelters in Iran. There is a volunteer veterinarian who provides medical care for our animals. With the help of animal loving individuals, we are trying to create an on going momentum to be able to continuously help these animals that undergo abuse and health problems, help them with shelter and other necessities that they deserve. All Donations and progress will be recorded and you can stay updated on our facebook page to see how well your generosity is helping these animals.
Maryam is our canadian sponser and will help us recieve all the donations that come from all the animal loving people.
Thank you to all.
