Thank you for taking a stroll through the best animal directory in town!


Welcome to my Dubai Pet Charities & Animal Directory. This site was created to help make life easier for the Dubai community. You can find information on everything and anything animal and pet related.

If it is not listed here, have any suggestions or questions…please contact me and I will try my best to get you what you need:

It is not just a directory. I also write the odd blog/opinion on animal welfare, upcoming pet shows and events, and just general animal related topics. Be free to leave comments and send me requests on a topic that needs covering.

  1. What a great site.
    As an animal lover I find your website fascinating. It provides so much information that will be invaluable to locals as well as saving time researching the various options in Dubai.
    I am sure there will be enormous interest in your website and I wish you much success
    Thank you

    1. Thank you very much! My directory is only in its beginning stages and I hope to be of service to a lot of people! Thank you for your wonderful comment!

      Cheers Erica :-)

  2. Hi Erica,
    What a great idea, I can tell you have a real passion for animals and a desire to help :-)
    I like your posts on equestrian events, my son has just got into eventing, it’s a great sport…Dubai sounds like a great place to go.
    Have you ridden there?

    1. Hi Murray!

      Thank you for your kind words. I am indeed passionate about animals, but horses and cats in particular :-)

      I used to ride out at a racing yard here in Dubai, I don’t anymore. There are lots and lots of horsey events here-
      Horse racing, show jumping, dressage, eventing and endurance riding. Dubai also has camel races!
      But it is mainly an Arabian horse and Thoroughbred related industry. One of the big events every year is the Dubai World Cup.
      It is held at Meydan race course and people all over the world come to attend this prestigious meeting.

      Good luck to your son and may he enjoy the experience of partnering up with a noble animal as the horse.

      Cheers Erica :-)

  3. Wow I love your site. I am doing one on Puppies but it seems a million miles away from yours at the moment.
    Keep up the good work

    1. Hi Annette!

      Thank you very much for the compliment! It is still a way to go, but with every post we aim to improve.
      Just take it one day at a time and the passion you have for puppies will show on your site. Working with animals are so rewarding.
      Good luck with your site.

      Cheers Erica :-)

  4. Love the idea of your website. I’m not from Dubai but I always find interesting to see how people create unique events in different parts of the world. While reading other comments, I realized that I will probably never see a camel or Arabian horse race. At least, I’ll have the chance to read more about one of the kind events on a website like yours!

    1. Hi Carolyn!
      Thank you for your lovely words and support. It is exactly why I want to go with this page.
      I want it to be the best animal site to go to regarding animal charities, events and information
      to help animal lovers find what they need.

      Cheers Erica :-)

  5. I love your site! I’m not from Dubai (but have visited) and i’m really passionate about animals – it’s great to learn about people like yourself, doing great things for animals around the world. I know Dubai has a lot of people who are there temporarily, or are new to the city, and your site will be so useful to these people.

  6. What a cool idea and very useful for all animals lovers to have a centralised area to find information about their animals in their city. I like that you have added pet moving companies – so helpful when you need to move to another country as they remove a lot of the stress from shipping your pet.

  7. Hi Erica,

    I think your site will really be helpful for pet lovers especially those who were looking for adoptions. I stayed in Abu Dhabi for almost 5 years until 2012 and there was a time I desperately wanted a cat. I struggled a lot searching for adoption and even almost ended up with scammers online. I hope readers can fully benefit from your site and help them save the troubles I’ve gone through. It will also be helpful if you can include the contact details or links of veterinary clinics in all other emirates.

    Best of luck.


  8. What a great idea, having all the information in one place. I absolutely love the picture on the front page, it’s so colourful. I wish we had something like that in Western Australia, it would save time having to search the web for all the different sites that is required, to have it all in one spot just makes sense. All the best, Kerry
