For those who are up to it, there are several places in Lebanon where you can adopt a pet for free. If you are still hesitating, give any of these places a visit and get more information on site. You might consider fostering before deciding.
There are so many pets in Lebanon that are without homes and special human companions. You don’t need to pay for a furry friend – you actually shouldn’t – when you can adopt one from the shelters that have been taking good care of them.
An NGO of animal activists, ARC has been operating since 2018, rescuing and sheltering animals and finding them adoptive families. They can be contacted on Instagram @animalrescueclublebanon
#5 ADOPT, DON’T SHOP
The name of this Lebanese registered NGO probably says it all.
Adopt Don’t Shop facilitates the adoption of pets in Lebanon using their social media platforms to post about pets available for adoption. It is a network of individuals, including vets, that spread educational messages and messages for rescue or adoption.
GAEA is a self-funding nonprofit group that helps rescue pets in Lebanon and find them safe homes with caring adopters. They believe that all animals have the right to kindness and respectful treatment and must be protected under the law.
The shelter was founded by a group of young Lebanese who are passionate about helping animals. They run the shelter, rescue abandoned and stray dogs, and work on finding adoptive families to give them caring homes.
