Ras Al Khaimah Animal Welfare Centre


"I have been using the Boarding Services at the Animal Welfare Centre since April 2012 and I will continue to use the services as I have no doubt in my mind that my animals are safe, happy and healthy. I have found the overall booking service to be fast, efficient and friendly and I am always looked after in a professional manner. The boarding rooms are spacious, air-conditioned have colourful toys to keep them entertained throughout the day. I love the fact that a member of staff socializes with them on a daily basis.  When George and Bella have been for boarding I really enjoy the photos that are uploaded on AWC’s Facebook page. It gives me a lot of relief to see just how happy and content my animals are in my absence. When I collect them after a vacation they are happy and healthy. I see Animal Welfare Centre as their ‘home away from home’. Thank you for all you do!"

"I had visited RAK AWC on several occasions for fund raising events and was impressed with the attentive staff and their caring attitude so decided to board my 2 rescue cats, Shrek and Squirt, for 5 weeks during the summer with them. The booking procedure was an easy on line form to complete and I received email confirmation almost immediately. Although they are 'on/off friends' they had separate rooms but I requested they were together every day for play time and not shut away on their own. After the first week, RAK AWC had posted several pictures on facebook of my 2 in their rooms (sleeping of course) and also playing together and looking happy. I looked forward to the weekly boarders pictures and to see how they were both looking. When I went to collect them they were relaxed and not stressed one bit, which they usually were. They had been well cared for, brushed and healthy, that made me feel less guilty about leaving them so long! Thank you for caring so much".

"Maska is more than happy to come to RAKAWC for boarding, he even recognises the route we are taking, and starts making noises in the car.
We are always met by friendly staff who know Maska by name and he is made to feel at home straight away. He receives excellent care and with Mr Chenjerai on site, any medical needs can be quickly provided should they ever be needed. All of this adds great peace of mind to know that he is safe and well looked after.
It also allows him to socialize and mix with many other dogs at the shelter which is not always easy outside of the shelter environment.
He is always happy to go in and very happy to come home, we are always kissed to death, as soon as he sees us waiting.
A really nice touch is seeing the photos of your pet on facebook, again its re-assurance that he is OK, safe and happy.

RAKAWC is the only place that we have ever boarded Maska at, we would not consider taking him anywhere else and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is in need of such a facility for their much loved pet".

"I have no hesitation in recommending RAKAWC as a boarding facility. My 2 cats and dog all stayed for 2 weeks when I re-located from Ireland with my family. All members of staff show a great love of animals and really good attention to detail when caring for them.
I booked RAKAWC from Ireland having received recommendations on the Expat Forum and they exceeded my expectations right from booking to arrival of my animals - which by the way, they arrived in the UAE 2 days before me. All anxieties were managed even though all communication was through email!
I will be using RAKAWC for all my boarding requirements while I'm living in Ras Al Khaimah".
