Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Short Summary

Who we are

We are a Lebanese NGO dedicated to improving the lives of animals in the region and fostering compassion towards them. We care for over 600 homeless animals that have been abandoned or rescued from the streets, give them food and medical care and try to find new homes for them.

Lebanon is currently facing a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented proportions, and we are all deeply concerned with helping the refugees from the conflict in neighbouring Syria.  Amidst this deep concern for our fellow humans, support for Lebanon’s stray and abused animals has suffered a steep decline, and at BETA we are facing increasing difficulty in funding our efforts to feed and care for them and keep down the number of strays on the streets.

What we need

More than 400 dogs live at our shelter just beyond Monteverdi on the road to Ras el Metn. It is an old farm, and the roof is in a very poor state, full of large gaps and holes, and some of the buildings have no roof at all.

This campaign is about keeping the dogs dry and warm during the coldest winter months by renewing the shelter roof on the 6 crucial areas we have identified (shown in the picture below). The cost of the roofing required plus needed infrastructure is going to be around $35,000, which we have divided into the following milestones:

  • Section A (Green section):  $5,000

  • Section B (Dark Blue section): $9,000

  • Sections C and D (RED sections): $7,000

  • Section E (Pale Blue section):  $7,000

  • Section F (Purple section):  $7,000

In case the full target amount is not collected, any left-over cash from the completed sections of roofing will go towards medical care for the dogs.

Why this project is important

Mahatma Gandhi famously said:

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it's animals are treated”

There is no government funding for animal charities in Lebanon and we rely on the generosity of donors to help us care for all the disadvantaged, abused and unwanted animals in our care. The roof will mean we can keep the dogs dry and warm throughout the winter. Every little bit will help; one metre of plain roofing costs just $6, so however small your donation, it will still make a difference!

Unable to donate? You can still help!

Even if you can’t spare any cash for a donation, you can still make a big difference to our campaign by spreading the word! Tell all your friends and contacts! You can do this by using the Zoomaal sharing tools available on this site.

Thank you for your support!

From the Desk of HOPKIN

From the Desk of BEAN


The response to our appeal has been fantastic! Many people have been very generous, and we have already achieved our first 2 milestones, and are well on the way to achieving the third.

So far there have been 2,348 views on this project!

All the dogs are very excited. They feel that the shelter will be much cosier once the new roofing is in place, and believe more people will come to visit them too.

Time is flying by, and we only have 12 days left! Please keep sharing and encouraging your friends to contribute so that we can meet out target!


ONCE AGAIN! A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL FOR YOUR AMAZING GENEROSITY!


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL OF US!
