Inside Jordan's shelter for injured stray dogs

STORY: Location: Amman, Jordan

Unwanted dogs in Jordan finally have a home

Eman Sabri opened Petly shelter for injured stray dogs in 2021

(Eman Sabri, Head of Petly shelter) “The shelter is self-financed and I hope that we can expand to receive more dogs with different conditions so that we can provide them with food and shelter. I hope that we can expand it and transform it into a reserve for animals with high standards.”

Veterinarian Raed Gharaybah volunteers at the shelter

(Raed Gharaybah, Veterinarian) “We receive dogs with special needs at this shelter that cannot live on the street. We also face difficulty finding a person who can adopt them here in Jordan. This place is their shelter so that we can look after them and provide them with food and water. Veterinary measures include providing these animals with vaccines and surgical sterilizations for animals that cannot walk, because they would encounter further problems if they were to get pregnant."
