The charity NOWZAD was founded in 2007 by Royal Marine Sergeant Pen Farthing.
We are holding a raffle to raise money to help our fellow vets, nurses and animals whom are facing extreme danger at the moment.
Pen arrived in Afghanistan alongside many other Royal Marines to provide stability for the local people during a period of ever decreasing security. They realised that not only did the local people need their help but also many of the strays that roamed the town of ‘NOWZAD’.
They have reunited over 1600 soldiers with the dogs and cats that they have rescue and bond with on the front line.
They currently have 140 dogs and over 40 cats in their shelters as well as having a donkey sanctuary.
