Animals Lebanon turns 14!

Animals Lebanon Turns 14!

Since Animals Lebanon was founded in 2008, we have fought for animals every day. We overcame hardships to make improvements in a country where change is incredibly difficult.

Together we did it! We made major changes for animals nationwide, & Animals Lebanon is here to stay. It has been 14 years of ups & downs, success & struggles, tearful emotions & happy endings.

  • We drafted the national Animal Protection & Welfare law, & lobbied to have it signed into effect in 2017, protecting all animals now & for future.
  • We launched a 3-year campaign to have Lebanon join CITES, an international convention protecting endangered species.
  • We inspire, our volunteers & staff have gone on to become veterinarians, or start their own organizations to help the animal issues they are most passionate about.
  • We fought court cases, establishing for the first time legal rights & interests for animals.
  • We help in over 16,000 community support requests every year for assistance with cats & dogs.
  • We close substandards zoos, sending rescued chimpanzees, bears, lions, & many other wild animals to sanctuaries around the world.
  • We have rescued over 5,000 cats and dogs from starvation, abuse, neglect, & injury, getting them healthy & into loving homes.
  • We combat wildlife traficking, stopping animals as they are being smuggled through the airport, or confiscating them from pet shops or private collections.
  • We educate children, & believe that the younger generation has incredible potential to help animals.
  • We were on the ground immediately after the devastating Beitur Explosion. In the days & weeks after the explosion, volunteers searched building by building, reuniting more than 100 lost pets, & distributed tons of food & free veterinary care for families that lost their homes.
  • We are changing the culture when it comes to animals, making animal welfare an established movement, & caring about animals an expectation.

Even at our most difficult times in Lebanon & more challenges to overcome, we will remain here helping the animals that need us!

THANK YOU for 14 amazing years!
Animals Lebanon is a drive for change and we will keep going,
