Welcome to War Paws

Animals in Iraq and other hostile environments need your help

Our aim is to alleviate the pain and suffering of animals in hostile environments and areas of civil conflict. There are lots of ways you can help us to give these animals a helping hand.

Panel 1

Our Mission

War Paws was created to provide a voice and make the difference for the forgotten animals of war.  We feel that the only way to make the difference that is needed is not to just try and remove the animals from war zones and areas of civil conflict, but instead, we aim to provide education for the local populations, provide information and encouragement on better animal welfare and animal husbandry and to promote happy and healthy ownership of animals.

  • Primarily we are working to alleviate pain and suffering of dogs, cats and any other animal that needs help, predominantly within Iraq but also covering Syria, Afghanistan and other war zones and areas of civil conflict.  War Paws does not believe that any animal in any one country is more deserving than another so we are happy to work with any animal in need no matter where it is located.
  • Rescue and re-home animals in need not only in their country of origin but also to the UK and other EU countries, USA and Canada.
  • Supporting serving soldiers and contractors in war zones and areas of civil conflict by reuniting them in their home countries with the dogs and cats they have bonded with on their tour of duty.
  • Reduce the dog population humanely by implementing TNR programs.
  • The education of the local nationals on animal welfare and the benefits of happy healthy dogs and other animals.
  • Work towards eradication of Rabies through controlled delivery of small and large scale Rabies vaccination programs targeting the stray animal and farm animal populations

Current fundraisers

We always have lots of different campaigns to raise essential funds for the animals in our care. Sometimes we have particular cases where we need to raise a certain amount of money to help provide our animals with the home they so greatly deserve. Click on the photo to find out more about each of these special cases and to donate. We appreciate your support.

Give a quid, Save a life

Can you spare just £1 a month to help an animal in a war torn country?

You may not think that just £1 makes a difference but it really DOES make the world of difference to an animal in need, especially when lots of people give just £1 each month. Most of us will treat ourselves to a bar of chocolate, snack, a takeout coffee etc at least once a month and often this comes in at more than £1. Imagine the difference it would make if we could get 10,000 people to give £1 a month just by giving up 1 cup of coffee or 1 bar of chocolate or other snack each month and donating that money to War Paws instead.

£1 will feed 2 dogs for a day

£1 will pay for 5 Needles and Syringes needed to administer life saving vaccines

£1 will pay for 1 dog or cat to be treated for worms

£1 will pay for a 1 week course of Amoxicillin for a sick dog or cat

£1 will pay for a bandage for an injured dog or cat
