PAWS Kuwait - Is This The End? Can You Help?

To read the newsletter online you can visit this link: PAWS Kuwait - Shelter Move

Most of you know PAWS. Most of you know what they have done for the animal situation in Kuwait for more than 7 years. 

Sad News in Their Newsletter...

Most of you know that we rescued over 3000 animals during that time. Most of you know how hard we have struggled all these years and how hard we fought to continue with our work in very difficult circumstances. Most of you know under which conditions we rescued, saved, treated, sheltered and re-homed dogs, cats, donkeys, birds, horses and camels. Most of you know how stubbornly we provided education and advice in schools and in public to change the conditions for animals in Kuwait.
You might remember the time we had to leave our old place in Wafra because we were kicked out by the House of Development and we were so grateful to get the new accommodation in Kebed. We spent all our savings from the previous years to make this place a new home for our rescued animals. Now we have to move again…..

Due to personal reasons of the land owner, we got a very, very short notice to evacuate the shelter in Kebed. Within 2 months! We were shocked and desperate and angry at the same time!

Right now we have a terrible financial situation and are NOT able to move a whole shelter to another place we don’t have! We relied on the promises of the land owner to be safe for the next few years. A move to another place would cost us min. 12.000 KD to build up new runs for dogs and cats, to install a sewage system, to install power, to move all the porter cabins, most of them too old to move again!

So tell me, is this the end of PAWS? Was all our work and heart blood for nothing? Will we be the victims of the circumstances here in the state of Kuwait? Will our saved and abandoned animals be victims of a system, which doesn’t provide professional animal welfare in a targeted modern society?

Are we forced to give up, because powerful people change their minds from one day to another, because they don’t care if abused and rescued animals have to be put down in the worst case? Because authorities see us as an annoying group of people who fight for something unnecessary, minor…for animals? I SAY NO! We have the ethically responsibility to continue PAWS’ work!

THIS CAN NOT BE THE END!…but PAWS needs your help so desperately right now, we can’t fight alone, we need people to support us to continue our work! We need a place to go where we are safe, where people understand that dogs and cats are the best friends of human beings, people who understand that we have to respect every creature in this world. We need money in case we find a place to move and give the abandoned and often tortured animals a new home, right now we talk about appr. 100 dogs and more than 80 cats, at least so long as YOU will come along and adopt them!

I swear by GOD we will fight for our animals and shelter as long as we can, but I beg you support us with labor work, construction material, financial donations, with advice and most importantly a place to go !

We will install a pay pal account on our website for donations, because it is a fact, we have to move!! We will try to negotiate more time to collect the necessary money. In case you want to call me personally, dial 99064229 or email me at

GOD / ALLAH help us! People, citizens of Kuwait, help PAWS!
Manuela Tague, Chairperson of PAWS and on behalf all our friends and members.

LWDLIK - Why oh why doesn't the government provide them with a piece of land to use? K'S PATH alone can't cope with all these animals and we can't allow them to put these animals down. It's very sad :O(
