Who are we?
Ivy's Haven was founded in 2016 by a group of young Emirati volunteers. The initiative was catapulted when one of the founder's first rescues, Ivy, passed away. She brought so much happiness into her life that we decided to honor her through creating this rescue group in her name.
We aim to create a safer environment for cats and dogs in the United Arab Emirates by raising awareness about animal welfare, introducing ways to decrease overpopulation of strays, and to encourage adoption over buying pets, specifically within Emirati communities. Our group has mainly focused on rescuing cats but we occasionally rescue small dogs, too.
Today, we can proudly say that we are a full of team ran by Emirati volunteers.
