You Can Help Save a Life
We work tirelessly to save as many cats as possible from the streets of Egypt. Help us reach our goals so we can help our cats survive and find love in their forever homes.
To rescue abandoned, mistreated and sick cats and even some dogs, from the streets of Giza, nurse them back to health and care for them until they find their forever home.
Where Are We Located
Zee Shelter is located in the heart of the district of Giza, Egypt. We have a house modified for the needs of the rescued stray cats. Even though we are located in Egypt, our sponsors, donors and volunteers are from all around the world.
How You Can Help
Adoption & Sponsorship!
All of our cats at Zee are available for adoption.
If you are not currently in a position to adopt, please consider sponsorship or becoming a Friend of Zee (FoZee).
About Zee Shelter
Who We Are?
At the beginning of 2017 the founder, Zeina Emparez, started the shelter with the aim to provide the very needed help to hundreds of cats in the district of Giza. Zeina started this project in a small apartment where she rescued and nursed back to health more than 1200 cats.
What started as a small project has grown with the help of sponsors, donors and volunteers in Egypt and in many other countries. Thanks to this, Zee Shelter has been able to find a forever home to more than 800 cats in the past 5 years. In 2019 the efforts made it necessary to look for a bigger, safer place where all cats get the needed food, rest and medical attention, so that they can recover and be prepared for adoption.
All this would not have been possible without the collaboration of the kind souls of our volunteers, donors and sponsors. Thank you a lot for helping us to make it possible for a better life for our cats in Egypt.
Together we save lifes
What We Do?
We rescue cats from the street
We strive to help homeless cats in the Giza area. There are hundreds of thousands of cats in Egypt and the situation now is even more desperate than years ago. Cats are suffering unseen and unimaginably. Without rescue they will die from starvation, illness, injury or human cruelty.
We help cats to recover their health
Our shelter have spaces for the kitties to be comfortable in complete safety. Further, there are designated spaces for mothers and nursing kittens, weaning kittens, cats awaiting spay/neuter surgeries, recovery space for post-surgeries, and new arrivals yet to be vaccinated.
We look for their fur-ever homes
ZEE SHELTER is completely dedicated to the rescue, care, preparation, sponsorship, adoption, home checks, travel and fundraising for all of our rescued cats and kittens. We can help people from UK, USA, Canada, Germany and other countries adopt their Egyptian angel.
