Pets are allowed in the UAE. However, as you are making the decision to transport your pet please consider the summer temperatures in Dubai, as they are often too high for pets to spend much time outdoors. Pets must be shipped to the UAE as cargo which can be expensive.

During the months of July and August K9 friends is always full to capacity. The world has left Dubai for vacation and a lot of dogs have been kicked out of their homes as the owners made no provision for them whilst they were gone.
Fostering means caring for a dog in your home until a permanent home can be found or until it needs to return to the shelter. Ideally we are looking for foster homes for July and August. The dogs can be returned to K9 in September when our homing’s pick up again, or on any date pre arranged with our office. Be aware if you live in an apartment we will need a letter from the landlord to say its OK to keep a dog in the building. Read more

Cats that love the outdoors need to know they can get back in, and make sure you have an extra bowl of water outside. Ask your children, gardener and anyone else in your home to help you keep it topped up. Dogs obviously on their walks feel the heat ten times more than you, they have a fur coat on, you do not. The Middle East is one of the hottest places on the planet, and we need to respect its harsh, burning climate more so for our pets. Read more

Boxes can be made out of plastic or the appropriate kind of wood, and will need a water bowl and funnel for pet travel. Move One Pet Transportation can supply you with a flight kennel or if you have your own, and it is suitable, we can fly your pet in that crate. Read more
