Clyde Clinton Deveraux is a female cat named by male contractors. I'm not sure how long she's been at the base in Helmand but I know it's been at least 2-3 years. I'm afraid of what will happen to her when everyone leaves so want to bring her home. HELP!

Question: How is the money I donate spent? How do I know it is used to help an Afghan stray companion animal? Can my donation go towards a specific animal?

Answer from Nowzad: As a charity we are bound by the strict auditing regulations demanded by the UK charity commission. The board of trustees make sure the money is used to maximum effect in making a difference to the lives of animals in Afghanistan, which includes the daily running costs of the Nowzad Afghan shelter, rescue transport costs, animal food and medicines (including vaccines) and of course our Afghan staff wages. If, for whatever reason the companion animal rescue is not successful (disease or injury) then Nowzad will use the money collected on this Go Fund Me page to support the daily running of the Nowzad shelter – if you are not happy with our policy then please do not donate as we are unable to offer refunds. Donating via Go Fund Me MAY NOT be tax deductible. Please visit the Soldiers’ Animals Companion Fund if you wish to make a tax-deductible donation from the US. If you have any further questions about how to donate then please just ask at

We would like to make everybody aware that this Go Fund Me page is not the only method that is being used to fund raise for the rescue costs associated with this companion animal from Afghanistan. The total required for a companion animal to travel to north America is on average $4000 (we make no profit and everything is subject to currency valuations and fuel prices on the day). To try and reflect the donations received from sources such as the Soldier’s Animals Companion Fund or via direct PayPal transfers, you may see the total amount required for this particular Go Fund Me less than the $4000 average. If you need further explanation then please just ask!

Nowzad Dogs is a registered charity (non-profit) 1119185 in England and Wales and 501c3 non profit in the USA.

Why call a female cat Clyde? Maybe they meant Bonnie. Anyhow this lovely cat is very similar to one that I adopted & called her GOLDIE. She was very loyal & loving.

I do hope that Clyde and all like her are rescued and brought to good homes - not left to a horrible fate there as 'collaborators'....
