About PAWS


PAWS is made up of a hard-working group of part-time local and expat volunteers committed to protecting animal welfare in Kuwait. PAWS’ aim in forming, in late 2003, was to open Kuwait’s first officially licensed shelter for injured, lost or abandoned animals. Until PAWS was established, nothing was being done to address the issue of stray, abandoned and injured animals in our country, (in any organised way). The first phase of our shelter project opened in July 2005. Although a building was donated, every development to turn this site into a shelter has been carried out painstakingly through donation and fundraising. We are unfunded by any private or municipality source and every brick, fence and can of paint has been gifted or purchased through donations.

As a non profit, volunteer led charity; we depend on caring people to give up even an hour or two per month to spend time walking dogs, or playing with the kittens. This is fun for the animals and for the people involved. Animals are given an opportunity to learn to trust people and have fun through volunteer one-on-one time! Not a dog person? Come spend time with our cats and kittens! Please consider the donation of your time to help out at the shelter. For those volunteers who go the extra mile and help out on rescue missions, “THANK YOU”. You help us to make a difference, when there simply is no one to come and help instantly! Your continued support is greatly appreciated and makes all the difference.

Would you like to help? Consider donating time, services or other means of support. Invite our educational outreach team to give a presentation to your students or interest group. We welcome visitors to our shelter by appointment. Text or email for more information. Take an active part in our community venture, The new PAWS Shelter Project!

Help PAWS be a voice for those who don’t have one!

    Dear animal lovers, I want to inform you that there is a group of dogs wandering in Mahboula around Lateefa Towers. Some of them are house dogs left by owners for sure. This fall the new school is opening close by, and I am affraid that all of them are going to be killed. I don’t have an option of giving them a home :( but maybe you jave an idea what to do…

    I already saved 3 kitties, have small apartment and long working hours so no space or time for doggy…

    As well I am an animal lover, had a dog, rescued couple of them and found them home. Saving little injured birds, turtles, everything… My friends, Ms Iva and Ms Sonya are volonteering at Paws, they can recommend me if necessary. I want to join you and help, but my days off are never Friday or Saturday. Is it possible to come on other days, Monday, Tuesday?

    Hope for the best!

  14. Dear Loren,
    We forwarded your comment to our shipment coordinators. They will check out with Kuwait authorities and reply to you by email.

    Ok this is less about paws and more about claws. I have an iguana that is just over 2 feet long (body and tail) and I was wondering if I could take him to Kuwait. If so do you recommend any companies. I probably wont be doing this for another 9 months. By then he may be 2.5 feet… He, Godzilla, is gonna love the warm weather.
