Through the eyes of a lifelong animal lover: Why dogs love Abu Dhabi
People have nothing to worry about should they decide to move to Abu Dhabi with their pets.
If dogs and cats could talk, they would be among those who would vote for Abu Dhabi as one of the best cities to live in. Animal lover Jennifer Hale, who has been moving pets into the Capital, has seen firsthand how much the emirate cares about the welfare of residents' fur babies.

People have nothing to worry about should they decide to move to Abu Dhabi with their pets, Hale said. "Once they arrive, owners find that there is full vet care here, parks where you can walk your dogs, and there are a lot of amenities for animals."
Hale, an American expat, is a lifelong animal lover who turned her passion into a career when she relocated to the city 15 years ago. Now an administrative partner at the British Veterinary Centre (BVC) in Abu Dhabi, she has been helping people who are moving their pets to the UAE and elsewhere. She and her team also offer pet rehoming and animal care services.
Having come from a country where animals are part of people's day-to-day lives, Hale was amazed at how Abu Dhabi takes care of pets.
"What we offer here in Abu Dhabi, it is in some ways superior to what you would find (in the US). You see dogs on the Corniche, you see dogs in parks, you see dogs swimming and on boats," she said.
And she believes creating a pet-friendly environment is largely anchored on the country's goal of ensuring people's happiness.
"Animals are incorporated more into lifestyle here. I think the UAE, in general, puts a lot of emphasis on the happiness of people who live here," said Hale.
She also hailed the big opportunities and endless possibilities that Capital offers for its residents' personal growth.
"Abu Dhabi is still a bit exotic to people back home (US), but it's more than that. Here, you can be involved at the start of something. You can start your own business and really help make a difference," she said.
