18 cats and dogs looking for a new home in Dubai this week
Pets are for life and not just for the festive season. At a time of year when families think about opening their hearts and homes, why not give a permanent home to one of the city’s many abandoned pets? All the animal welfare organisations are looking for people who can offer forever and foster homes. And if you can’t house a pet, animal shelters are always looking for volunteers. Get involved this Christmas.
