If you visit Luxor I suggest you visit ACE's animal hospital. It is a short taxi ride (check opening times). We were welcomed and shown around the hospital and saw the animals being treated. There were donkeys, horses, a sheep, cats and dogs. Some of the animals are resident and seem to have a lovely, lazy life there. There was... More

While in Luxor I visited the Intrepid Foundation's local project Animal Care in Egypt (ACE). This was an opportunity to see ACE at work and visit their in-patients. It was fantastic to witness first hand the approach the project takes towards animal welfare and to raising awareness among the locals.

I am a small animal veterinarian in Connecticut and was so impressed with the work being done at ACE. Their commitment to education is something that will one day change the mindset of how people treat animals in Egypt. It was painfully obvious how awful the lives of donkeys and horses are in Luxor and surrounding cities in Egypt. ACE... More

Like many, I was appalled and shocked at what I witnessed regarding the state of the working animals- the horses and donkeys - in Luxor. It affected my whole trip in Egypt and I couldn't stop thinking about it nor stop seeing it, as the abuse and neglect are everywhere. I decided on my last day to visit them to... More

I visited with my 3 young children on our holiday to Luxor. I had asked ACE if they would mind coming and looking at a cat at our hotel and they kindly came and picked her up asap and we followed them back. We were given a tour around, and met all the animals. I hadn't realised that Martin Clunes,... More

We first visited Luxor 25 years ago and one of the things we remember vividly from that trip is how poorly the animals were treated. The animals looked to be in much, much better condition this time and I think that is, at least in part, because of ACE. Did is definitely not your 'normal' tourist day out in Luxor,... More

It has been several years since I was in Egypt but still I remember this group and what terrific work they are doing to help animals there. Certainly worth a visit and some time.
