Dogs in Doha
This group of animal lovers does not have a shelter but they’re happy to assist you and your furry little friends in any way they can. This includes arranging flight buddies and adoptions.

Requesting to rescue a brown-yellowish cat and her cubs. They are all in the car park behind Al Handasa Building (QP office) on B ring Road.
Please urgenttly do something. The cat has been crying seeking help.

The information you have regarding QAWS is incorrect. The matter is not financial, its due to them being evicted from the land they have inhabited for 10 years and not being able to find anywhere else to go.
