Let’s talk about Dubai’s amazing pet hotels that take care of your furry family members just as well as you would.
Words by Ipshita Sharma
Be a responsible owner and don’t dump your pets when you go on holiday or leave Dubai for good. These pawsome places will look after your fluffy friends while you’re travelling. They all get busy, especially over the holiday season, so be sure to book in plenty of time.
The Pet Sitter
Run by the lovely Paulita, this is a service that can come by and take care of your pets at home, in case you don’t want them living elsewhere while you’re away. Great for scardey cats that are terrified of new surroundings.
Animal Specialist Clinic
A Dubai favourite, this veterinary clinic has luxurious boarding services with a spa and a super cute CEO cat called Roo. There are special rates for rescues and Shammi, one of the managers, is always available to help you through any pet-related issues like moving country.
Kate of Paw Pals is a dynamo who will love any and all pets like her own. She is willing to do overnight stays at your home with them, just to ensure their comfort and your peace of mind. She is also very happy to help you through any questions you may have about rescues or ensuring your companions can go home with you.
