Help us make a difference!
Animal Care in Egypt is a charity dedicated to helping stop the suffering of thousands of animals in the poorest communities of Luxor by providing free veterinary care and education.
For almost 17 years we have been providing free veterinary care to help animals when they need it most. This is alongside preventative treatments and education, delivering a long term impact on the welfare of working animals and the people that depend on them so greatly for their livelihoods.These hard working animals often lack the most basic veterinary care. Many are neglected or mistreated, not through malice, but due to lack of understanding or provisions.
Our dedicated team of vets treat and save the lives of thousands of animals all year round. We have a walk-in clinic, a hospital to perform crucial surgeries and 25 stables that allow the animals to rest from their working lives where they can recover. We closely monitor them, provide regular treatments and ensure their progress back to health.
We helped over 29,000 animals in 2016
This number includes our preventative work such as: routine dentistry so animals are able to eat properly; farriery for preventative foot care helping donkeys and horses avoid crippling lameness; de-worming for dogs and cats; and emergency care for cattle, sheep & camels.
We teach over 150 children each week during term time
A local teacher, Wael Nour, educates a different class of up to 50 students from the schools in Luxor four times a week in our purpose built classroom at our centre. They are taught that animals feel pain and how to care for them. They learn to be kind and respectful to all living creatures, vital for the long term improvement of animal welfare in the area.
If you would like to visit us while you are in Luxor, we would love to see you and show you around the centre. You will get a tour of the hospital, centre and the stables where you can meet and cuddle some of our patients!
We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. You don’t need to be a qualified vet or vet nurse to help us at the centre in Luxor. We have general volunteer placements, veterinary student and vet nurse student placements.
