The Kuwait Society for the Protection of Animals and Their Habitat (K’S PATH) – the first animal welfare and habitat protection organization in Kuwait to be accorded official status as a legal society by the Kuwait Ministry of Social Affairs – launched its redesigned official website en.kspath.org, on 1 September 2015. The mobile-friendly website features ways in which the community can support K’S PATH’s work through volunteering, sponsorship and making contributions.
It also features a gallery of companion animals for adoption where one can view photographs and profiles of dogs, cats and small animals.
“We have reached where we are today because of the support and goodwill of the many citizens and expatriates who make up Kuwait’s diverse community,” says K’S PATH Vice Chairperson and Executive Director Sheikha Fatima M. Al Sabah. “Their trust has enabled us to help more than 17,000 animals over ten years and our new website is a platform to connect with our community through a range of activities,” she added.
The website features a ‘Sponsor A K’S PATH Animal’ section where individuals and groups can support a dog, cat or farm animal of their choice by sponsoring the cost of food and medical care for a duration of three months up to one year. "For people who cannot adopt a pet, sponsoring is a great way to make a difference in the life of our 300+ shelter animals," adds Sheikha Fatima Al Sabah.
The website launch was timed to coincide with the start of the new academic year so that readers can subscribe to K’S PATH’s newsletter through the website, and receive news about upcoming fundraising events and activities.
Founded in 2005 by Ayeshah Al Humaidhi, The Kuwait Society for the Protection of Animals and Their Habitat (K’S PATH) is Kuwait’s first legally recognized nonprofit animal welfare society managing an open-door sanctuary and shelter for wildlife, companion animals and farm animals in Wafra providing medical care, food, adoption services, rehabilitation and lifelong sanctuary for approx. 300 animals at any time. To date it has cared for over 17,000+ animals across 37 species.
