Pet shelters overwhelmed amid COVID-19 outbreak

by The 100 Companies

Amid the coronavirus outbreak the number of surrendered animals have increased across the emirate, despite any evidence proving that humans can catch the virus from their pets.

In the UAE it is illegal to abandon your pets. Even still, the number of abandoned pets have spiked due to coronavirus fears.  Stray Dogs Centre has taken  more than 30 dogs into shelter in the past two months alone.

Shelters across the UAE are not prepared to receive such a large number in a short timeframe. Pet owners must keep this in mind before deciding to give their pets to a shelter.
