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:
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.
Missing Cat: from Al Ain Mall area, Al Ain: a long-haired adult cat, with grey fur. Special features: ginger/orange eyes with black dot in one eye.

Here are some of the beautiful cats and kittens for adoption - go to Adopt a Pet 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.
