Only dog shelter in Dubai has to move

UPI News Service, 03/04/2005 

Dubai's first and only home for stray dogs has been ordered to move from its current premises and around 80 animals may soon be on their own again.

The K9 Friends shelter, in an industrial district of Jebel Ali, was set up out of concern at the way the Dubai government treated stray dogs, including shooting and poisoning them.

But, the owner of the warehouse being used by K9 Friends is seeking to get his lease back, leaving the dogs with nowhere else to go.

"We're still desperately looking," Jackie Radcliff, who runs K9 Friends, told BBC World Service's Outlook program. "We've been in touch with other warehouses -- there's nothing for the price that we're paying at the moment."

Last year the shelter spent around $109,000 on the dogs, much of it vet bills. The home has launched a publicity campaign and is petitioning Crown Prince Mohammed for help.
