Friends Of Animals
Getting involved at a community roots level, Friends Of Animals helps to facilitate fostering, adoptions and urgent appeals for animals across the emirate. Visit their site to give an animal a home, or help with the vet bills for Akela, a German Shepherd puppy who was run over by a truck and now needs six months of intensive treatment.
This canine charity offers up a myriad of ways in which you can help man’s best friend – from adopting to helping walk their four-legged residents (with their dog-walking programme resuming at the start of October). Plus, you can volunteer in areas including fundraising and administration, as well as sponsor a dog or a kennel.
It’s long been the first port of call for anyone who has ever found a stray cat in Dubai, and the charity cares for homeless kitties, also treating and sterilising their animals. Help out by adopting or fostering one of their lovable fur balls, as well as donating or volunteering your time.
