Food, vet bills, holiday boarding, grooming, training, expatriation when you leave the country… can all start to add up. It’s very important to do your research before adopting a pet.

Every year in Dubai there are hundreds of dogs (both young and old) that are abandoned and often euthanised. Many people who abandon their dogs in Dubai are expats who come to Dubai, get themselves a puppy and, upon leaving the country, decide not to/realise they cannot take their dogs with them.
