Type of Organization
Tahira Animal Welfare Foundation is a charity working for the welfare of stray animals living in stressful conditions within Pakistan. The leading cause of their misery is the overpopulation of homeless animals. TAWF is working to overcome the root cause. Their main goal is to control the population of stray animals and eliminate rabies in the area through the sterilization and vaccination of stray dogs.
TAWF has also built an advanced animal shelter and hospital equipped with advanced X-rays, Ultrasound, and other critical medical equipment. There is no other animal shelter within 100 miles.
TAWF believes that animal welfare education and awareness are the most important steps towards creating a more empathetic and compassionate environment for animals, which is why they hold awareness camps in schools. In these awareness camps, they educate students about animal rights and the current animal abuse taking place in society. They believe educating new generations will allow children to have their own beliefs and tackle historic negative views about strays.
After hearing of the incredible work TAWF is doing, SPCA International wanted to lend them a helping hand so that they could expand their spay/neuter services and help more animals and people in need.
