A Cause for Paws

All life on planet Earth deserves the care and attention needed to survive in the most difficult situations.

This campaign aims to promote the welfare of animals within Abu Dhabi. We believe that all animals should receive care that upholds their wellbeing, regardless of their size, breed, age or circumstance. We believe community animals, the term we use to define stray animals, are as important as pets. Your contribution will support our work in the following programs:

• Educational and awareness programs related to animal welfare
• Feeding station program for community cats
• Emergency veterinary treatment program for community cats and dogs
• TNR program for community cats and dogs

We truly believe that together, we can foster a more understanding and compassionate culture towards animals for future generations to come. We envision a nation where animals are seen as a community responsibility and offered the kindness and care they deserve.

What is Animal Welfare Abu Dhabi?
Founded in May 2019, Animal Welfare Abu Dhabi (AWAD) works to improve the lives of animals in the United Arab Emirates. Working with teams of volunteers, AWAD educates children and adults on the welfare needs of all animals, leading to improved standards of care for pets and street animals. AWAD offers animal welfare advice via its professional team of veterinarians, and lobbies for strategic changes to raise welfare standards.
