Five animal welfare groups in Doha

Take care of a furry friend with help from these organisations

Five animal welfare groups in Doha

Qatar Animal Welfare Society
Unfortunately due to financial constraints this notable animal welfare society, the oldest in Qatar, is being forced to close down on September 30. If you or any of your pals want to adopt and save some animals – now is the time to do so!

Dogs in Doha
This group of animal lovers does not have a shelter but they’re happy to assist you and your furry little friends in any way they can. This includes arranging flight buddies and adoptions.

Parkview Pet Centre
Often cited as the best vet in Doha, Parkview offers services such as the fully-equipped clinic, on-site pharmacy, grooming salon, a boutique with accessories for sale, and boarding facilities.
Open Sat-Thu 8am-8pm. Al Hedaya Street, Madinat Khalifa North (4417 1560 or 5509 9494 for emergency).

2nd Chance Rescue
Founded in 2009 by young Qatari national Abdullah al-Naemi this rescue centre, which is based on a farm outside the city, takes in abandoned animals, as well as raises awareness of animal welfare issues. They also have a volunteer programme you can get involved with.
Open to public Fri-Sat after 2pm. Umm Al Amad interchange, Shamal Road, (4417 1560).

Qatar Pet Travel
Nicky Roffey, the manager of QPT, is an animal lover and saw the need to help out. She and her team help you organise travel to and from Doha for your animal – an often painful experience if you don’t know what’s what! Al Ain compound, Ain Khalid (5542 4030).
