Emergency help for UAE Cat Sanctuary

16TH APRIL 2024

This private sanctuary is home to 250 rescued cats and serves as an important back bone for thousands of stray and abandoned cats. Rescuers rely on this shelter for emergency boarding and health care for their colonies. 

On 16th April 2024, the biggest ever storm caused flooding and damage across the UAE. The sanctuary was hit badly. All animals are safe but the sanctuary urgently needs your help to restore the place. Below are scenes from the sanctuary:

Large scale damage from strong winds and heavy rain have destroyed roofing, ceilings and walls for animal rooms and staff bedrooms.

Thanks to everyone who has helped restore this important sanctuary. Work has almost completed. Majority of the roofing has been restored but two important zones are still not yet prepared due to the lack of the remaining funding require.

Thank you for your support. Please help raise the remaining £1,700, we are almost there.

UPDATE: 3rd May 2024

UAE was hit again yesterday with heavy rain but luckily this time it was not as bad as the huge storms that devastated this sanctuary 2 weeks ago. Thanks to your support, this sanctuary had already installed water proof roofing the day before the rain. All animal rooms remained dry. Some other spaces are water logged but the teams are draining them quickly.

Thank you for your support. Please help raise the remaining £2,200, we are almost there.

UPDATE: 27th – 30th April 2024
