According to animal welfare groups in the UAE, the summer of 2018 has seen an unprecedented number of pets being dumped and left to fend for themselves. This has put a serious strain on animal advocacy communities and shelters as they struggle to find space for abandoned pets. Unfortunately, many people who would like to help by fostering or adopting an animal feel that can’t because they live in apartments. However, you don’t need to live in a spacious villa to be able to offer an animal a good home. High-rise living does not need to stand in the way of you adding a four-legged companion to your family.
