4 WAYS TO HELP QAWS ADOPT DON'T SHOP! By adopting a rescue animal rather then buying from a breeder or pet shop, you also free up a kennel or cat space for another animal to be rescued off the street.
VOLUNTEER! We would love to have your help with dog walking, cat socialising, grooming and bathing, organising events, administration and collecting donations.
DONATE! QAWS is always in need of Purina pet food, bleach, DAC, towels, blankets, toys, treats and leads. Our shelter shop sells second hand books, household items, children's toys and electrical items- your unwanted items are always gratefully accepted.
SUPPORT! Attend fundraising events, encourage friends to adopt rather then buy and educate younger generations about pet respect and animal welfare.

Dogs in Doha Dogs in Doha is a volunteer organization helping rescued dogs find a loving home. We are a network of people who help to rescue, foster, adopt and find missing dogs. We do not have a shelter but rely on the kindness of people to foster or sponsor a dog while we work to find a forever home. All dogs that are ready for adoption have been to a professional vet and are healthy, have been vaccinated, spay / neutered and micro-chipped. Our philosophy is 'Don't Shop, Adopt', help us to spread the word. If you are interested in volunteering, fostering or adopting a dog into your family please contact us.

Dogs in Doha
Have Dog, Will Travel
The time has come for you to leave Doha either for good or just for the summer. You’ve packed and held a farewell party. But wait - aren’t you forgetting something? In the rush to relocate or head off for the holidays, don’t overlook your pet! Follow this checklist and she’ll arrive safe and sound at your destination. It can be pricey to ship a dog overseas, so start saving for her adventure now! Confirm that your dog’s vaccinations are current and ask your vet if she needs any special tests for the country you’re travelling to. Some tests take at least one month to complete so plan well in advance. Quarantine laws vary. Check the pet import requirements at your destination and prepare your dog accordingly to ensure all runs smoothly. Confirm that your dog has a functional, registered microchip – it’s quick and painless to scan at any veterinary clinic.
Buy an airline-approved travel crate and train your dog to use it so she’s comfortable with sleeping in it for at least 6 hours - there can be delays on even the shortest routes! Gather all necessary paperwork such as test results, vaccination records, import and export licences. Reserve your dog’s spot on the plane ASAP when you purchase your own airline ticket. At busy times of the year the slots are snapped up quickly, so book early. Check with multiple airlines– some allow dogs to travel as “excess baggage” at a fraction of the cost of cargo. If in doubt, enlist the help of a professional pet relocation company to assist you with your pet’s move. Pack your dog’s bed and some toys in your hand luggage so she has something familiar when she arrives at her new home.
