The overpopulation of free, roaming dogs and cats in Cairo is a well known issue that has plagued the city for many years - without delivery of an effective solution. It is estimated that 15 million stray animals roam the streets of Cairo every day. This poses an issue on many levels for the citizens: the diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans, hygiene problems caused by animal droppings, traffic hazards and the potential for attack on people by packs of dogs in particular. The welfare of the street animals is also a big concern: a female cat can have up to three litters per year and a female dog can have two litters annually.
A female cat can give birth to as many as 180 kittens in its lifetime!
TNR Zamalek, TNR Maadi, TNR Dokki & TNR Zahraa Maadi were created by small groups of volunteers to help finding a humane solution to the overpopulation of animals. We trap, neuter, vaccinate, ear notch cats and ear tag dogs then returned them back, we only do two to three catches per month in each location, depending on the availability of funding.
Veterinarian expertise is provided at very low cost by local NGOs created by vets, which have been operating very successfully since 2015.
TNR Maadi was created in 2015 TNR Zamalek was created in 2018. TNR Dokki and TNR Zahraa-Maadi have just commenced operations. More TNR programs are being created and will be launching in the coming months.
In order to pursue and expand our mission, we need your help!
The cost per cat is only 350 EGP (21 USD), and 600 EGP (37 USD) per dog, althought we have to buy the Rabies Vaccine we offer it for free. We are counting on you!
