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.
