WHO WE ARE
The Stray Dogs Center (SDC) is a non-profit animal welfare organisation, founded in 2013. Our mission is to help abused, abandoned, neglected and forgotten stray animals in the UAE with a "no kill" policy. Our shelter holds over a thousand rescue dogs, a handful of wonky donkeys and 15 cats.
WHAT WE DO
We rescue dogs from every Emirate in the United Arab Emirates.
Most rescues are abused, abandoned, starved, ill or injured. They arrive at the center broken souls, sometimes on the brink of death, full of ticks, sick, aggressive, despondent. Thus begins the journey to rehabilitate. Helping overcome trauma can take from weeks to even years.
Finding a home for every doggy in the shelter is the ultimate goal. There are always others waiting to be rescued, to take the place of the adopted ones.
We are licenced by the Federal Authority, the Ministry Of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE), and the Government of Umm Al Quwain (By Royal Approval), United Arab Emirates.
Our shelter has a paid staff of twenty five who are caretakers for the dogs and the shelter in general.
We also have around 100 volunteers helping in many things.
