There's two kinds of people - those who adopted a dog, and those who haven't adopted a dog... yet

Interested in adopting a pet in Dubai?
There are dozens of cuddly canines up for adoption at animal shelters across the UAE.
But why an animal shelter and not a pet store? Well - you save a life, you help in reducing the pet overpopulation in Dubai, you can choose from a wide selection of pups and dogs, you adopt a pet who received great love and care, you're supporting a charity/animal community centre, and it also encourages others to adopt not shop!
K9 Friends, the country's longest-running dog rescue centre, have eight dogs who are looking for a forever home. Apart from these dogs being utterly lovable, they aren't just your typical "Spot", "Buster", "Lady", and "Duke" - their given names are also utterly unique.
Meet Sultan! A hopeful rags-to-riches story, Sultan was rescued from the road by a kind man and the team at K9 Friends saved his life. He needed to go straight to the vet suffering from severe dehydration but made a full recovery. He's a nearly 4-month old bouncy, playful, and friendly puppy who will be neutered at 6 months.
Find him at K9 Friends!
Hi, Tulsi! Found in an industrial area with her siblings, this playful desert mix puppy is perfect for any pawrents out there. She’s nearly 4 months now and will be neutered at 6 months. Hopefully, she has her forever family by then.
