Good World Animal Rescue and Protection (“GWARP”) is a US registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to save abandoned and abused animals throughout the Republic of Azerbaijan. The shelter serves as a sanctuary to dogfighting survivors, paralyzed, disfigured, blind, and abuse victims. Sadly, some dogs will never make it out of the shelter, but most are able to fly abroad for adoption. 

The mobile clinic inside GWARP’s shelter is open to the public for the neuter and spay of pets and homeless dogs and cats. To date, over 1,000 animals have been sterilized. 

GWARP’s mission is as follows:

  • Maintain a no-kill shelter for unwanted animals until a time that they may be adopted to qualified homes;
  • Provide long-term care for those animals not appropriate for adoption;
  • Provide foster homes for those animals unable to live in a shelter;
  • Provide necessary veterinary care;

  • Improve the temperament of those animals who are ill-tempered by training programs;
  • Aid in the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and abandoned animals; 

  • Place rescued and homeless animals into permanent adoptive homes; 

  • Prevent cruelties of any form to any and all animals and aid in the prosecution of such cruelties;
  • Provide spay/neuter services to strays and to the pets of low-income individuals in order to reduce over-population and the occurrence of euthanasia of dogs and cats; 
  • Reduce the number of animals euthanized in the community via rescue;
  • Advocate for animal welfare in the community; and
  • Improve the lives of animals throughout Azerbaijan
