Welcome to the animal welfare website!
Animal Welfare Al Ain is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in Al Ain.
We rely on volunteers and members of the community to carry out our work. We do not have a shelter or office.
This means that if you see an animal and rescue it from the street, you are taking responsibility as there may be no foster homes available.
However, we always do our best to help. 2 companies contracted by the Municipality which treat sick street animals and sterilise them for free
(AWA is not recommending or endorsing these companies, we are only informing you of their service):
Al Ain (north) PMC: 03 735 8118 or call 993.
Al Ain (south): Eagle 800 2500
We are a member society of WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals)
and MENAW (Middle East Network for Animal Welfare). We also work with other animal
welfare groups in the UAE.

A selection of animals looking for a home
Here are some of the beautiful cats and kittens for adoption or fostering- go to Adopt a Pet page or Foster Page.
Please read the notes on 'What to consider before adopting
a pet' on the Adoption Page
We require you to fill in an application form before adopting and there is an adoption fee.
This is because they have mostly been spayed, treated and cared for by us for a period of weeks or months.
AWA Donation Box for Cat food in Al Jimi Mall
If you have been to Al Jimi mall recently you may have noticed that we have returned the cat food donation box.
We had a great response to this last year with lots of wet and dry cat food. Thank you very much for your generosity!
It is great to feel that we have this anonymous support.
We need more dry food as we have now 4 sites where we have cat cafes (cat feeding stations) at some educational campuses around Al Ain.
We give them dry food every day and a few times a week we add some wet food to their diet.(All the cats that we feed have been sterilised).
You can donate tins or packets of cat food or money for our Cat Cafes.Go and see it at Al Jimi Mall main entrance.
See Education Page for more details on Cat Cafes.
