The clinic

 We have a fully equipped, on-site clinic that caters to all animals

contributors' list .

The space hosts a small surgery room and 3 other rooms for animals that are recovering under close supervision of the vets. We treat equines outside the clinic as most of them have owners who are poor and cannot afford any paid treatment.

Animal Aid Abroad's application to WSPA for a much needed ultra-sound machine for our clinic in Alexandria was successfully approved in May 2010. The total value of the grant was US$5,000. We are very thankful and grateful to WSPA for providing most of the funds for this very important diagnostic tool. 

We were, at that time, the only vet clinic in Alexandria with an x-ray ( kindly donated by the Yr 6 PLC animal group in 2009) and an ultra-sound machine.

With these machines we can help, not only our paying clients animals (money that helps to off set our costs) but also the many animals who have no owners (strays) and owners of pets who cannot afford treatment for their animals.

Our vets are dedicated to their work and the clinic has been fortunate enough to have a number of vet students volunteer their services to us. They are helping us with our daily equine cases that stop outside the clinic for some medical help.

AAE veterinary clinic is open to the public. Our vets provide consulting services, treatment and/or surgery to all sick pets brought by their masters. All funds that are raised from rendering these services are directed towards stray animals in need. 

 TNR program

 The Spay/Neuter Clinic is operated facility that provides dog and cat sterilization services.

Spaying or neutering pets reduces the number of unwanted domesticated and stray animals, and plays an important part in reducing the cost of governmental stray animal control in the long run. The spaying of a cat or dog involves the removal of the female reproductive tract. It is best performed at 5 to 6 months of age. The neutering of a cat or dog involves the removal of the male testes. It is best performed after 5 months of age, or when the testes are fully developed.
For more information on spay/neuter costs, please contact us.
TNR program
One of the most effective ways to control the stray animal population (and animal population in general) is through a rigorous Trap, Neuter and Release Program.
We therefore operate this program in areas around Cairo where there are large populations of stray animals off our own accord. We are always on the look out for areas were there are large numbers of stray animals, and we perform our TNR program there as a service to the community from S.P.A.R.E.
We also encourage people to contact us in the event that they live in an area that has many stray animals.
T - Trap: We catch stray communities of animals in a given area and take them to the clinic. They undergo thorough examinations and are treated for any ailments.
N - Neuter: We spay/neuter the animals and fully vaccinate them.
R - Release: We then release the animals back into the community.
This happens only if it is safe for them: meaning that people in the neighbourhood do not feel threatened by the animals in any way.
The concept of TNR is actually better for the community than shooting or poisoning the animals. Animals that are sterilized and return serve as guards, of sorts, against other animals occupying the area.
Nick de Souza, Regional Manager for World Society for the Protection of Animals in Africa on TNR:
“…Animals that are sterilized convert food to body mass more effectively and are therefore bigger and stronger and better able to defend their territories. They then prevent other animals immigrating into the area so the population remains stable.
They are also vaccinated against rabies, which provides some comfort to the residents in the area. The sterilized animals also live longer so the overall age of the population in the area goes up, these older animals have a wealth of experience and are less intrusive, causing fewer conflict incidents.”
The Procedure
We scout the area to assess the animals, and trap the ones we can catch. We then take them to the Shelter, where we operate on them, and we return them to their area within 72 hours.
In the interim, we offer orientation programs to the community, where we answer all questions as to how to deal with these animals.
Should some animals pose a threat to the community (overly aggressive, terminally ill) this animal is put to sleep in a humane manner so as not to have a negative impact on humans and other animals in the area.
If members of the community do not want the animals around at all, we will Shelter the ones that are the most abused, and we will put the others to sleep humanely.


Since the beginning of this year Animal Aid Egypt has faced a number of challenges. Moreover, the effects of the 25 January Revolution in Egypt have also been felt: the curfew and the withdrawal of the state police from our cities' streets, created a feeling of insecurity for a number of weeks. Now, however, life is in many ways getting back to normal and AAE has as much work as ever! AAE has continued giving daily support to a number of sick and injured animals on the streets of Alexandria. Our dynamic manager, Norhan Sherif, is running our new clinic and gradually word is getting around about where it is and what it is doing. Although our budget is very tight, Norhan has managed, with the help of one of our newest AAE members, Tarek, to repaint the clinic, thus saving precious cash which can now be better spent on medicines and animal food. Tarek has already brought a number of animals for treatment at the clinic and this was just another way he found to help us. Now the newly painted clinic will hopefully attract more pet owners to bring their animals for treatment too and thus helping to raise money. The AAE Facebook page has enabled us to keep people updated on new cases and on the progress of individual animals at the clinic. Recently Norhan successfully managed to organize several adoptions either via Facebook or directly via word of mouth. One example was a cat, Chester who was just left by someone in front of the clinic's door one morning. His new owner is a actually a vet, Dr Eman Rady, whose own cat had passed away, and she not only came to help out at the clinic for free, but also adopted Chester! The clinic has not only been treating cats and dogs, but also a number of equines. Many horses and donkeys have a really hard life on the streets of Alexandria. They are sometimes mistreated through lack of care or ignorance, but also their owners often just can't afford to feed them properly, let alone pay for medicines or vet fees. Recently a horse was brought to the clinic in such a bad state that he could no longer walk and was transported on a cart! Our vet, Dr Moustafa examined the poor animal and with the medicine he prescribed and the help of the AAE team, including Samir, our clinical assistant, the horse was gradually helped back onto its legs! What a proud moment that was! Some cases however meet with only partial success. A few weeks ago a woman phoned the clinic asking for help with her cat—Bobos—which she could not catch! Norhan went to take Bobos and discovered that he had one eye completely destroyed. Not surprising that in such pain, he didn't want to be touched! Presumably this feisty marmalade colored tomcat had been in a fight with a rival…. Anyway, after our vet had operated on Bobos removing the totally damaged eye, his owner informed us that she did not want a cat with one eye and just abandoned him at the clinic! He is very nervous and can be aggressive—which is not entirely surprising after all he's been through—so adoption will not be easy. AAE only has clinic facilities and very limited 'hotel' facilities for pet owners who travel for short periods, so unfortunately we just cannot keep animals indefinitely. One of the most heartrending cases is of a white stray dog, which we decided to call Cairo. A passing vehicle like so many others we treat probably injured this dog, which has such a lovely personality. As soon as Norhan received a phone call about this dog which was howling in pain she rushed to the scene. It took her two whole hours just to persuade him to let her take him: he was so afraid. She lovingly brought him back to the clinic where our vet examined his broken leg. Firstly, as his testicles were torn, he had to be castrated. Then he needed an Xray. One of our young volunteers, tarek el ashrey and norhan shreif AAE MANGER,  helped to take Cairo to the American Medical Center nearby for an Xray,  Many thanks TAREK AND NORHAN! Today Cairo is now walking again. He is still in our care and updates on his progress are regularly posted on Facebook. Now, for some lighter news…. AAE has a new logo! This new eye catching blue logo has been placed on Facebook and promotional items such as flyers and T shirts. Last Friday AAE organized a stand at a big concert in Alexandria. Several members of the AAE team went, including Norhan, Tarek and Eman, wearing sparkling white T shirts with our new blue logo. Another AAE member, Nora Ibrahim, had generously had 3,000 copies of the AAE flyer printed off to distribute at the concert. We not only enjoyed ourselves, but managed to raise 350 Egyptian pounds, get new volunteers and above all raise awareness about Animal Aid Egypt's work here. On a final note, it is because of Animal Aid EGYPT that we are able to help the many street and working animals in our city. We are the only animal welfare clinic in our city and we exist only on the kind generous support of AAE it’s donors and supporters. We need your help and support so animals like Cairo, Bobos, and the many working animals can be helped in our great city.
