The Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (ESMA) was formed in 2007 and is a registered Egyptian NGO (No. 3059/2007). ESMA actively works to improve animal welfare in Egypt for all animals, including dogs and cats, working animals, wildlife, animals in public and private zoos, animals sold in pet shops and at live animal markets, and all animals slaughtered for food. ESMA operates two no-kill shelters and adoption centers, and is also involved in ongoing campaigns, initiatives, and advocacy activities to promote animal welfare in Egypt.
To visit one of our shelters for the first time, please make arrangements in advance so that an ESMA representative can give you driving directions and meet you there.
