Paws Rescue Qatar (PRQ), was established in 2014 to save the lives of abandoned cats and dogs. This organization is saving the lives of hundreds of dogs and cats abandoned in the 50 degree Celsius heat of Qatar.
However, according to their report, despite having saved thousands of animals from the killer. However, the government or a landowner has now ordered the charity to relocate their premises next month.
According to the Daily Mirror. They will do this despite the humanitarian and outstanding work this charity does. “We have no excuses.”
Below Qatar’s 50°C heat, the charity’s founders, Alison Caldwell and Vicky Lamont, say animals cannot flee the streets of Qatar because of the heat. That is the first problem.
The second problem is that the people of Qatar see them as pests. Get them hit by a car intentionally or unintentionally, even poisoned or beaten to death.
Much of their work is concentrated in an area just outside the capital, Doha, where a huge factory complex was razed to the ground two years ago. Several dogs fell into unused wells and a volunteer climbed down to save them.
Charity founder Alison Caldwell and colleague Vicky Lamont showed us some of the dogs they’re saving.
More and more people die. The founders also told us that Qatar is not a good country to protect abandoned animals. I read that this is a country whose citizens do not want to receive rescue animals. That is their attitude.
Alison, from Winchester, Hants, said: “The animals don’t cope well on the streets of Qatar. They endure summer heat of up to 50 degrees Celsius, and in their search for food, water and shelter, they come close to people who consider them pests. They are regularly beaten, poisoned, either intentionally or accidentally hit by a car.”
PRQ has always ensured that over 300 cats and dogs have been flown to the UK to start a new life, while others have been brought back to the US, Canada and elsewhere.
Surely these poor animals will have a happy home when adopted. “Qatar is not a strong market for shopping, so we look for shelters around the world,” Alison said. All of our expenses are covered through donations and adoption fees. But C.o.v.i.d has had a significant impact on us.”
However, the organization is currently facing a very difficult problem: they are about to be evicted from their temporary housing next month. The charity currently has 159 cats, 90 dogs and a rabbit at the shelter. The poor animals did not know that they would lose their shelter. Vicky says the news is “devastating” for the animals here.

Why are these people so heartless? Hopefully these poor animals will find a new shelter soon and this humanitarian organization will soon have headquarters to operate again.
