Sezar Dog Hospital, Iran

The general situation for dogs in Iran right now is absolutely dire - as well as being abandoned and neglected, dogs are being abused, tortured, mutilated, and slaughtered. Sezar Sanctuary is run by Hosein Mohammadi, an extraordinary man with “healing hands” for dogs. He nurses dogs back to physical and emotional health after they have been tortured and abused.

Sezar Sanctuary has very limited facilities for treating injured dogs however and requires a proper veterinary hospital in order to maintain standards and to increase the number of dogs that can be taken in. We took a brief and designed the new building with retail and grooming facilities, veterinary consultation rooms and over 30 kennels. Works are due to start on site later in 2019.

"Jonathan and the team at Veterinary Architects quickly grasped the goals and challenges facing my project to establish the leading dog hospital in Iran outside Tehran itself. Despite the difficulties of collaborating across international borders, they quickly produced a design which exceeded my expectations - I am delighted with the overall result, thank you!" Hosein Mohammadi, Founder of Sezar Sanctuary
