So junior just received a dog for his birthday and you need to get his shots. You’ve just relocated your family pet to the UAE and its ready for a check up? The kids found an injured stray that’s in dire need of medical attention.

The Garden Cat Project is a TNR (Trap, Neutering and Release) service provided by Friends of Animals Dubai, ideally for cats living around your house, garden, building’s entrance, nearby your parks, supermarkets, cafeterias etc. They provide full facilities for trapping, transporting and helping “YOU” helping those “CATS”.
Why do they do this?
The estimated stray cat population in UAE is approximately 250.000 the situation is so overwhelming that will require authorities, community members and private sector to bring the issue to a manageable figure by alternative HUMANE practices only.
Community members are all exhausted finding injured cats and kittens on the road; many are injured by cars, by territorial fights, sicknesses and other precarious living conditions. This has indeed a devastating impact on many of us and needless to mention promotes a negative message on the kind of city we all are living in. We do blindly believe that we can ALL make a difference. Read more

When calling in the exterminator to get rid of cockroaches, ants etc Move One Pet Transportation would like to remind you to remove your pets from the premises. Your pets should be transported to a safe location while the professionals do their job and in some cases you may need to keep your animals away from the home for several hours after treatment for safety purposes. Check with the Pest Control company how long the pets should be kept away from the home.
As well as taking your pets out of the home you should also remove all their bedding, food bowls and toys they may chew. Granular lawn products may require keeping the pets off the treated area for 24 hours or longer while the granules dissolve and the treated area dries. Read more
