Wat can you do to help stray animals

Anybody can help an animal in need.

I think most residents who have been living in the UAE have at least faced an animal in need once.

The stray population keeps growing but luckily there are many people helping. In the years I’ve been living here, I’ve met a lot of people who also would like to help, but they don’t know where to start.

So, I hope the below helps.


1) Visit the Vet (for TNR or Emergency Cases)

A very well-known initiative to help stray cats is called: TNR. It means Trap Neuter and Release.

What it means is that volunteers like you and me are trying to control the cat population by having cats neutered or spayed and bringing them back to the same place where they were found after that.

Please do keep in mind that certain cat breeds that might have been dumped, don't do well outside like Persians or Turkish Angora's. These cats will have to be re-homed.

Or go to the vet if you see that a dog or cat needs emergency care.


2) Adopt a Pet.
