​About Us


We are a small group of ladies who took it upon ourselves to help the street dogs of Cairo, Egypt. We are a non-profit organisation and we are all volunteers. 

Claire and Lucy are twin sisters who founded Paws Crossed Survivors after they rescued 74 dogs from a fake shelter in Cairo. These dogs were being cruelly neglected by the owner and many had horrific injuries. 

Now all of the dogs are safe in a new shelter and we fund-raise every month for their board, food and medications. 

We also prepare these dogs for travel and find them homes in the UK. It is our intention to get every single dog we have under our care - homed. 

In Egypt we have teamed up with Chance Shelter and have our shelter Manager Sana, and Rofia, who is Chance Shelter manager. We also have 2 wonderful volunteers called Robert

and Sherine who all work tirelessly for the dogs. 

In the UK, Jinny is our main fundraiser and sponsor administrator, Claire is the general manager and Lucy is our adoptions manager. We all have full time jobs and run this mission purely during our free time. We do it for the dogs that need us! 

Thank you for visiting our site and please get in touch if you have any questions.
