Nod and a Wink & Nowzad Dogs
We're delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with the Nowzad Dogs Charity.
Nowzad Dogs has been formed to relieve the suffering of animals in Afghanistan and to do something positive for the many dogs and cats that have no hope and no body to care for them.
The life of Afghan animals is not one of comfort at the best of times; most of the day is spent hunting for scraps of food or hiding from the hot desert sun during the summer or the freezing cold of an Afghan winter night. There is definitely no pampered pet status in Afghanistan.
In January 2011, after many months of hard toil, Nowzad opened the very first and only officially recognized animal shelter in Afghanistan. To date Nowzad has reunited more than 200 soldiers from all over the world with their much loved adopted cats and dogs and they continue to be inundated with rescue requests on a daily basis.
As well as rescuing soldier's pets they also assist the local people by way of providing vaccinations for their cats and dogs and education on how to care for their pets. A lot of Afghans care deeply for their pets and are thrilled to bits that there is finally a place they can take their pets to show them off and have them vaccinated against disease and neutered.

Got any Old / Unwanted / Ill-Fitting Bras ?
Nowzad Dogs have found a textile company in the UK that collects bras and the charity is able to raise money from every kilo they are able to send them !
They can collect ALL types of bras including ones with or without wires; brand new or well-worn, all we please ask is that they are washed before being sent. Once they have been received by the textiles company the bras are then sorted through and sent abroad where they can provide clothing for those who either do to have access to or are unable to afford new garments.
So come on ladies, spread the word for us and lets see if we can turn some old (washed) bras into hard cash for Nowzad.
If you would like to help the charity with their appeal by sending any bras you may have, please send them to the address below:
