Dubai Municipality Veterinary Clinic
Located past Mushrif Park on Al Khawaneej Road, Mirdif | Registration, Stray Animal Pound | T: 04 2891114
The Veterinary Services Section at the Public Health Department issued a directive that pets must have a microchip implanted before receiving the Municipality disc. All owners will need to provide valid documentation for each pet to prove that one has been inserted, or be scanned to find a microchip is present. All annual vaccinations must be up to date. They must also wear the Dubai Municipality ID disc on their collar at all times (ID discs are given after vaccination).
Stray cats are routinely caught by Dubai Municipality. Any pet without an ID disc is treated as a stray, held for 8 days and can be re-homed or could be put to sleep if not claimed by an owner.
If you wish to report an animal cruelty incident please call: 800 900
