Who we are
Animal Protection Foundation (APF) is a non-profit organization and dog shelter registered in Egypt under the number 5630.
APF helps the street dogs who had no-one else to care for them. Millions of strays are roaming the streets of Egypt, with the numbers growing alarmingly due to a lack of sterilization (spay/neuter).
The dogs in the streets are prone to being hurt by people or cars, or being sick. And although we only help those who are severely injured or very sick, however, the shelter is always working above its capacity.
APF does not receive government or any other authority funding. We rely completely on donations.
