A Word from the Founder & President
Thank you for taking an interest in S.P.A.R.E.

My husband Raouf Mishriky and I decided to take action to stop the atrocities inflicted upon animals in our country, and created the first fully Egyptian animal shelter in Egypt in 2001.
We saw it as an opportunity to speak for the voiceless, and through them, re-instill in our country a stronger sense of empathy and a kinship between all living beings.
One of our main drivers was that the Egyptian government controlled the stray dog population using Strychnine poison, killing thousands of dogs throughout the country. Amazingly, it is the State Veterinary Department that is responsible for this. Another concern was that The Ministry of Interior has a special department to shoot stray dogs, as yet another method to control the stray animal population. What made matters even worse was their lack of expertise in shooting, resulting in the animals dying a slow and painful death.
We saw that the concept of compassion towards animals was non-existent in Egypt: even young children were inflicting torture on defenseless animals, drowning them and tying them with rope. Furthermore, neither the concept nor the culture of animal welfare existed in Egypt, and we wanted the opportunity to both save wounded and abused animals, and educate the Egyptian public about animal welfare and compassion for animals.
Egypt has such a rich and powerful mixture of cultures - Pharaonic, Greco Roman, Coptic, Arab, Islamic, Mediterranean, African: our ancient civilizations fascinated some of the worlds greatest thinkers and philosophers; it inspired some of the most progressive and forward-thinking figures in history. And, when I think of Egypt now, I think of our old values; of our unwavering ethics; of one of the greatest civilizations on earth; of refinement, of beauty. If you ask me what I wish for the future, I will tell you that I want Egypt’s future to be as civilized as our past.
My life's dream is to help animals, especially those that are very abused in Egypt. It will be hard work, but I promise you that I will do everything in my power to change the fate of the animals in Egypt.
Amina Tharwat Abaza

Animals In Egypt
Gandhi once said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Today, a certain mentality amongst Egyptian culture regards humans as superior to all animals. Unfortunately to some, this translates into mistreating animals because they do not feel morally obliged to care for them. Ignorance has lead some to think that animals were created solely for the use of humans and are therefore to be treated without humanity.

Images that would usually shock us such as dumping sheep into car trunks, crammed cattle in trucks without food and water, and extreme cruelty to donkeys and horses is now seen as normal. The truth behind “halal” slaughtering is not a secret anymore, thanks to YouTube and to those following animal rights movements in Egypt. Even despite several hadiths and verses in the Qur’an that preach the humane treatment towards animals, careless slaughtering still happens and animals are commonly dumped in piles, some of them still alive. According to the RSPCA, (Royal Society for the Prevention of Animal Cruelty) Australia placed an export ban on cattle after alleged mistreatment of cattle in Egypt . This included pushing cattle off trucks and stabbing them in the eyes and legs.

Egyptian authorities take brutal measures to eradicate the stray populations of dogs and cats as well. Dogs are poisoned and are made to endure agonizing and slow deaths caused by seizures and respiratory paralysis. Recently, Egyptian authorities responded to citizens’ complaints by shooting a pack of stray dogs who were left to die slowly or left to live with broken bones and permanent paralysis. Common killing methods of the public include drowning, starving and torturing strays for either entertainment or eradication. Glass filled meat is also fed to dogs which causes them to suffer extreme pain as the food is being digested. Animal activists such as S.P.A.R.E (Society for the Protection of Animal Rights in Egypt) have brought some horrific stories into light; one puppy even had his tail severed off for fun by a butcher.

A simple new outlook must be taken. Educated or not, we must realize that it is not about picking animals over humans, but about preventing something barbaric that should cease to exist.

S.P.A.R.E aims to engage the general public by allowing them to volunteer, adopt, donate, or sponsor animals in need of help. We also take responsibility for sheltering, finding animals new homes or humanely putting them to sleep. We speak “for the creatures of this world who cannot say when it hurts, when they are scared.” In a part of the world where animals were once sacred in the ancient days, we of all people should understand the truth that resounds in Gandhi’s words.
