ADFH Pet Care Center
The Abu Dhabi Animal Shelter is supported by the ADFH Pet Care Center.
Before adoption, all cats and dogs undergo a rigorous health examination and neutering process. They get vaccinated and microchipped and receive medication against fleas and worms. ADFH Pet Care Center is a veterinary clinic open for all adopted cats and dogs as well as any other cat, dog and pet.

We examine all pets for adoption to determine its status of health. Moreover, we take care of them in case of diseases or any kind of reduced wellbeing. This might include X-rays, laboratory tests like blood samples etc.
Our cats and dogs for adoption are all neutered. Only in cases of small kitten or puppies that are too young for neutering, they have been left intact. If you adopt a kitten or puppy, please return it to us for neutering when it is big enough.
Vaccinations help your dogs and cats to be protected against harmful viruses and bacteria.
We vaccinate your dogs and cats from the age of 8-9 weeks. This vaccination needs to be repeated after another 3 to 4 weeks to reach a safe level of protection. The vaccination needs to be repeated once per year to protect your pet. All vaccinations are recorded in the vaccination book of your pet for future reference.
Dogs are vaccinated against:
- Canine Distemper
- Kennel Cough
Cats are vaccinated against:
- Cat flu (calicivirus, rhinotracheitis)
- Feline Leukemia
- Feline panleukaemia (Cat enteritis)
We insert microchips under the skin of all cats and dogs for adoption as a unique means of identification. This microchip has a 15 digit number that can be read with a special reading device only. This procedure is not painful for your pet. Moreover, it helps to identify your pet if it should escape or be stolen. For relocation to countries abroad, microchips must be implanted in order to fulfil the necessary transportation requirements. All microchips are recorded here in the ADFH Pet Care Center.
Our pet section of the ADFH Laboratory is a highly specialised laboratory with various departments. Therefore we are able to serve you with the fastest and most advanced tests. For most tests like checking for worms or blood test, you can wait for the test result. We provide tests for:
• Blood haematology
• Blood biochemistry

Specialised Dental Center
As dogs and cats suffer frequently from dental problems like tartar, gingivitis or even inflamed tooth roots, they might experience great pain. In cats, behavioural problems have been associated to toothache like reduced acceptance when touching the cat’s head or even aggressive behaviour. We help you dog and cat to life a pain free and happy life through our advanced methods in dental care.
Apart from conservative medicine, our Pet Clinic offers your pet homeopathic remedies and medicines. Your dog is suffering from hip dysplasia or arthritis and no cure helped it so far? Then try homeopathy! The results of the homeopathic treatment can be amazing. In the same time, it is a very gentle treatment without side-effects. However, a fist-time deterioration of the condition can happen which is a good sign that the medicine works well.
