Qatar Veterinary Center
It is a crying shame really. I am microchipped but not registered. All the staff at Qatar Veterinary Center nearly SOBBED. Do you realise that I could have been home YESTERDAY if I was?
Please call if you know me. You will have to quote my microchip number to collect me because I am, quite frankly, GORGEOUS.
I was found on Tebah Gardens.
Kisses, Tebah xx 44216405 or 55524614
PS, do your dogs and cats a favour and REGISTER their microchips. It is FREE, ALL the vets can search it and it takes less than TWO minutes.
Daisy is a 4-year-old Papimo (Papillon/American Eskimo mix). She's up-to-date on her shots although she's not spayed. She's an abused dog that we adopted, we are very reluctant to part with her but she needs a new home.
She's very gentle and sweet although she's a yapper when the bell rings.
Please let us know if you can provide a loving home for her.

Dear all, I am a new member in this group. We will be in Doha in the next few months. We will bring our lovely shih tzu with us. Some said snub-nose dogs are not allowed to fly. But we cannot leave her....anyone can help share the experience ? Appreciate any comment. Thanks.
Good evening animal lovers! No more excuses to leave your pets behind when relocating to the UK! Starting January 1st 2012 your pets can enter the UK without having to go through the painful and costly process of Quarentine! Please read the link below for more information. The best news so far in 2011 :))) http://www.gulf-time...
I recently visited Doha with a view to moving there for work. I was taken out by my new employers and one of the places we visited was the Souk.
I was horrified to see that animals were dyed different colours, presumably to make them more attractive to potential buyers.
Anyway, I shall be moving over permanently in a couple of weeks and one of the things I want to do in my spare time is to try to bring an end to this practice.
If anybody has any ideas or would like to join me in this aim, please drop me a line.
'Duke' is a lovely adult Saluki who loves children, friendly with visitors, doesn't bark and is well trained.
He was found with a black collar (with paw prints) on 9th June, along Grand Hamad street - almost dying of heatstroke/ dehydration.
He was immediately taken to Doha Vets, warded and now nursed back to health.
He needs a new home as I am allergic to dogs and can't keep him much longer..he is a life companion and a gentle giant who loves to be hugged :)
He is in perfect health (as per the vet - blood tests) and has had his vaccinations..
Since moving to Qatar in 2008, my husband and I have saved too many animals to count. Some of the highlights include a male cat who came along with our Villa in 2008. A neighbor's abadoned female Turkish Angora who was very pregnant with 3 male kittens. We had her sterilized after finishing feeding the kittens got her and all her babies a home, in fact, the runt of the litter came to live with us. Over the summer 2010, we found 3+ kitties which were are all vaccinated, sterilized and adopted into lovely homes. We adopted a beautiful mixed breed female pup from Vet Surgery in May 2009 and this year we found a very skinny 6 month old male Saluki out by Education City. As our home is full with cats and one dog, we must find Luki a home! He is wonderful.

Please note as from the 1st October 2010, pets entering the UK under licence for quarantine from third countries (i.e. those outside of the EU) may only do so via approved Border Inspection Posts. For the UK, these are currently Heathrow or Gatwick Airport. They can no longer enter via Manchester. Pets can still go into Manchester if they are coming from an EU.

'Animal lovers taking part in the sponsored dog walk at QAWS this weekend'
The Qatar Animal Welfare Society (QAWS) held a sponsored dog walk at the weekend to mark the first anniversary of the devastating fire that destroyed a shelter and claimed the lives of a number of animals living there.
The fire that tore through the QAWS shelter completely destroyed almost everything that stood there.
However, the group managed to save most of the animals there, and following a difficult period have persevered to rebuild new kennels.
I would like to know if any of you can recommend a good groomer. I have used to the services at one vet clinic (which I wont name) but I am not too happy with them and would like to know if a better service is available. Thanks
There are plenty of ways to help QAWS that don't require spending money. There are everyday objects that you might be throwing out that could help QAWS and the animals:
- Towels & Blankets
- Old A/C units (can be sold for scrap)
- Books/Toys/Misc Objects (Can be sold at future events)
We are also always looking for more volunteers to help with:
- dog walking
- cat cuddling
- grooming & bathing
- organising events & running stalls
- taking animals to the Government vets for vaccinations
- school visits & presentations
- home visits & follow ups on adopted animals
I have found a full grown, black and brown, pure-bred, male Saluki in Al Nuaija. I don't know if he belongs to someone who is looking for him, or if he has been abandoned.
To claim him, please call 456 6359 (ask for Joe or Tracy). We will give him to anyone willing to provide a good home for a dog.
Summer is here and according to the UAE meteorology forecasts we are in for one of the hottest summers yet.
While we are all able to know when we are getting hot and how to keep ourselves safe from sunstroke, our 4 legged friends are not able to communicate with us that they don't feel very well outside in the sun.
Please take note of the following signs that your dog maybe suffering from heatstroke.
Signs of heat stroke include (but are not limited to): body temperatures of 104-110F degrees, excessive panting, dark or bright red tongue and gums, staggering, stupor, seizures, bloody diarrhea or vomiting, coma, death. It is wise to learn how to take your pet's temperature in the event of an emergency.
We found this dog at our back door on the 5th May. I had seen him a few days before running around the main road. We live in West bay not too far from the exhibition centre and intercontinental. He has a brown leather collar and is very well behaved so im sure he's someones pet. Not sure of the breed but looks to be a mix.
Picture attached, please get in touch if you know who he belongs to
I am starting to be disheartened by the vets in Qatar. Everytime you go to the clinic, the vet fees have gone up again. At QAWS, we don't ask for an adoption fee, we ask for the animal's vet bill to be paid by the new owner. When we rehome an animal - we get NOTHING.
We're finding it harder and harder to find people to adopt animals simply because of the cost involved.
Recently we had an average sized male dog castrated, and with the surgery, post-op medication and vaccinations, his adoption fee is now QR1,560.
