Adopting a Dog in the UAE!

We’re committed to helping dogs in the UAE. As part of our ongoing animal welfare mission, we’re supporting local rescuers and charities, to help re-home rescued dogs in need of a forever home. If you’re interested in fostering a dog or adopting, please get in touch with the relevant rescuers.

These individual rescuers and organisations work tirelessly to help dogs in the UAE. Without their work, these dogs would not have a second chance of happiness.

Please remember, any pet is a lifelong commitment. Some dogs may have been neglected, abandoned, mistreated or left to survive on their own. If you decide to adopt or foster a dog, please keep in mind they’ll need time and your patience to settle into your home and surroundings.

If you choose to adopt a dog in the UAE, you need to have funds to care for them. Dogs can live up to 12+ years. They require vet visits, some may require grooming, and they will need to be cared for should you travel. You must commit to relocating them with you should you leave the UAE. 

Where My Paws At is involved in TNR (Trap Neuter Return) across Dubai. Our #NeuterNovember campaign saw the start of TNR efforts, however, we can’t do this without your support. If you would like to help, you can buy our TNR E-Certificates which pay towards neutering and spaying in Dubai.
