Make a donation...

As a volunteer-run, non-profit organisation that is 100% funded by donations, we completely rely on our supporters to keep us open and enable us to keep helping animals in need.

Please visit to make a donation and please know that every single amount, however small it may seem, makes a huge difference in keeping QAWS open.

There are many other ways to donate and support us as well, please keep reading… We hope the below gives you some useful ideas as to how you can help QAWS and the animals in our care.

Do you have any bright ideas?  We’d love to hear your comments, thoughts, ideas and suggestions, so go on!  contact us

Personal donations

If you would like to personally donate to QAWS please visit us, you can locate us using the map on our contact page. Every donation we receive towards the care and upkeep of our dogs and cats are always very gratefully received.

You can help QAWS by making a contribution to our veterinary bill at Qatar Veterinary Centre. You can donate at the clinic or over the phone with a credit card by calling (+974) 4421 6405.

Donate things we need

With over 300 animals in our care at any given time, QAWS is always in need of donations to assist with the daily running of the shelter.

If you can donate any of these items, QAWS and its furry residents would be incredibly appreciative:

  • Cat/kitten food – biscuits and meat (Purina Cat Chow, Whiskers cat and kitten food, Meow Mix kitten biscuits) ***
  • Dog/puppy food – biscuits and meat (Purina Dog and Puppy Chow) ***
  • Dog collars
  • Dog Leashes
  • Cat litter
  • Cat and dog toys
  • Cleaning supplies (bleach, disinfectant, mops, buckets, brooms, large rubbish bags)
  • Towels and blankets
  • Fridge
  • Watercooler
  • Large shade canopy / gazebo
  • Clothes drying racks
  • Freestanding room fans

*** Why does QAWS specify brands of pet food to donate? We try to keep to a single brand of food for our animals as it’s important to maintain a consistent diet to avoid upset tummies!

We also know that these are the brands of food that our animals will eat which of course is very important!

Donate your time

You can also help by giving up a few hours a week to help out, please see our Volunteering and Foster Care and Fundraising pages, for more information.
