Feline Friends
Feline Friends is a non-profit organisation whose aims are primarily to
provide care for sick, injured and abandoned cats & kittens, and promote control of the cat population. Feline Friends is a non-profit making organisation that has been in existence since 1991. The organisation was first founded by Lesley King, a British Expatriate living in Abu Dhabi. A few months later Jackie Green, an American Expatriate, started a sister organization in Dubai. Feline Friends is fully funded by donations and supported by part-time volunteers. Feline Friends DOES NOT have a shelter; our remarkable volunteers foster our cats in their homes until they are adopted.
Our mission is to:
  • provide care and relief to sick and injured cats and kittens,
  • rescue abandoned cats and kittens from the streets and foster them until good, loving and permanent homes can be found,
  • promote the control of the feral and domestic cat population in the country by implementing a programme of spaying and neutering,
  • provide guidance and support for cat owners to encourage responsible care and ownership,
  • educate the public to care for and respect the cat population whether they are domestic or stray through publications, animal related events and visits to schools.
Feline Friends is a member society of World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and subsequently follows their doctrine and principles. Volunteers always needed!

K9 Friends- can you lend a Paw?
K9 Friends are always looking for more volunteers. This would enable us to work more effectively for the benefit of more dogs. We are encouraged that the awareness and eagerness of school children to help has increased.
We appreciate their efforts and have received many donations of money and food. Well done! However, we also need more mature volunteers who are willing to help K9 Friends by taking even more responsibility for dogs in need.

We are totally dependent on contributions from the general public. We are run by a 5 member committee; a chairperson, treasurer, office manager, kennel manager and sponsorship coordinator. All of these posts are unpaid. We have around 40 regular volunteers who help in the shelter and office and others who help in specific areas such as vet runs, education and outside fundraising events. K9 Friends relies on volunteers and always needs them!

dubai dogs trustDubai Dogs Trust
Our mission is to neuter, vaccinate and then rehome strays and abandoned past pets to prevent them from being euthanised. Dubai Dogs Trust was set up by 2 friends, who had worked at another dog rescue together as volunteers. After seeing many rescue dogs jump from one foster home to another, we knew that there was a need for stability within foster dogs lives. So with this in mind we decided only to take on small amounts of dogs at a time, to ensure that they were given the attention and care needed before they were adopted. We will only take on new rescue dogs if we have an empty foster home or we have rehomed a dog. Find Out More>>

great danes in dubaiGreat Danes In Dubai
There has been a steady increase in Great Dane ownership in Dubai. This is due to the expatriate population increasing with people entering the Emirates with their Great Danes, shops importing Great Danes from breeders in mainland Europe, illegal breeding here and Great Danes needing re-homing due to behavioural or health issues. Due to their giant size there have also been a number of Danes needing to be rehomed due to their owners not realizing the substantial costs involved in exporting their dogs back into the home country.

All the above have contributed to a worrying sharp increase in the population of Great Danes in the United Arab Emirates. Without substantial experience with dogs especially those of a giant breed owning a Great Dane can be quite daunting. The Middle East has many pre-conceived ideas of dogs and this alone can be challenging for a typical dog owner let alone a dog that can be anything from 70-80kgs in weight. Their imposing size can be quite intimidating and due to this the breed misunderstood. I hope that your looking through this website will educate and enlighten you to the wonderful world of the Great Dane, their gentle nature, their endearing qualities, their fun, full on approach to life. Health matters to be aware of, potential behavioural issues to be concerned of.

All Great Danes rescued and re-homed by GDID are neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, all online donations are welcome. To find out more visit www.greatdanesindubai.com

dsdpDubai Senior Dogs Project- DSDP
The Dubai 'senior dog' project is a non profit group of volunteers aiming to encourage awareness toward and facilitate, wherever possible, the adoption of older dogs by Dubai expats.It's a community driven initiative helping bridge the gap between transient expats & the growing number of displaced dogs. Operated entirely by volunteers, we encourage everyone to play a part in supporting our cause, helping with whatever skill they can. If you are looking to permanently adopt a dog or offer LONG-TERM foster care, please get in touch. If you wish to help us by any other means, you are also most welcome to contact us. Before you adopt any dog, do the right thing and only get a dog that you know you can care for FOR THE REST OF IT'S LIFE. Nobody's 'best friend' should spend their final years bouncing from foster home to foster home or in an animal shelter, and sadly, this is exactly what is happening! Find Out More>>

From a horse to a little bunny, nothing is too small to deserve our attention. The right to life is not granted only to humankind by God. What sets us apart from many organizations in Animal Welfare of our times is that we do recognize this right for the animal kind. We do not kill animals because we don’t have the space to take care of them, or because they don’t look good enough to be adopted. We do however euthanize animals only if they are irremediably ill or suffering. Visit Their Facebook Group Page>>

animal welfare al ainAnimal Welfare Al Ain
Animal Welfare Al Ain is a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in Al Ain.
We rely on volunteers and the generosity of the community to carry out our work. We are a member society of WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) and we are also a member of MENAW (Middle East Network for Animal Welfare). In addition, we work in cooperation with other animal welfare groups in the region. If it is not possible for you to adopt an animal then you could foster a cat or dog for a short period of time until the animal is permanently homed. It may be a few weeks, six months or longer. It depends on each individual case and how quickly someone offers to adopt. We often have female street cats which need to be kept inside after they have been spayed before they go back on the street. They need about 4 – 5 days recuperation time to be sure that there are no complications from the spaying.

RAKAWCThe Ras al Khaimah Animal Welfare Centre

The Ras al Khaimah Animal Welfare Centre (RAK AWC) is an animal sanctuary funded by the Government of Ras al Khaimah, with the patronage of His Highness, Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Ruler of Ras al Khaimah. The shelter was the idea of Melissa Davis and has progressed continuously ever since. The shelter was opened in January 2010 and with the help of a few employees and many volunteers it is growing into a centre of excellence where the animals of Ras Al Khaimah receive the necessary care.

Our mission is to improve the welfare of all the animals in Ras al Khaimah. We do this by:
  • finding suitable homes for as many abandoned or tame dogs and cats as possible
  • humanely trapping, sterilizing, and releasing feral cats and village dogs to reduce the population living on the streets
  • providing Ras al Khaimah with Boarding Services, a Veterinary Clinic and a Pet Retail Store that serve as revenue-generating components for the project
  • providing medical treatment for injured animals, to both stray and pet animals
  • humanely euthanizing animals (cats, dogs, donkeys, camels, goats, etc) that are severely ill or injured.
  • promoting responsibility in pet ownership (spay/neuter/vaccinate/microchip/register)
  • educating the public about the Animal Welfare Law and implement it in the community
  • increasing public awareness of animal issues through school and community events
