Become a member, save a stray

Join as a Pet Buddy for AED 149 or as a Pet Owner for AED 369, and 50% will go to support 38smiles’ vet bills.

Ramadan is a time that reminds people to be kind, compassionate and be generous to the ones in need. It brings the UAE communities together and inspires each other to help and do good deeds to serve the society we live in.

This Ramadan, with your help, we at MyPetBuddy aim to reduce 38smiles vet bills so they can continue to help stray dogs and cats in need. We’re giving back 50% of your membership fee to go straight to paying off a stray’s vet bills at the Petzone veterinary clinic. Existing members can also support by upgrading your membership.


What is MyPetBuddy and why should I join?

Join the MyPetBuddy community and not only will you connect to 400 other owners and buddies in your community for FREE play dates and sitters, you’ll also be contributing to saving a stray and supporting 37 rescues to save hundreds more. 


Benefits of MyPetBuddy:

  • Sign up and connect with trusted dog and cat lovers in the community to take care of your furry ones when you can’t, or exchange favors with other pet parents and never have to pay for pet care again. 
  • As a pet parent you’ll also get access to 24/7 vet line support for any advice and emergency triage as well as 20% off on all services at Amity Vet (T&Cs). 
  • If you don’t have a pet, sign up as a Pet Buddy and share your passion to offer to walk, care or sit for your neighborhood’s pet owners. You will also get access to 24/7 vet line support for any advice.

What will my donation go towards?

38smiles is a non-profit animal rescue organisation registered under EAWS, in the United Arab Emirates. Their motto is to “Help the strays of today become the pets of tomorrow.”

Their volunteers work tirelessly to rescue harmed and hurt animals, feed strays, rehabilitate and re-home rescues locally and internationally, and organize trapping, neutering and releasing campaigns to help manage the strays population. They also work towards educating and raising awareness on the stray animals situation.

Donations will go towards vet bills for strays that are rescued that can range from:

  • Neutering
  • Medical baths
  • Flea & Tick removal
  • Mange treatment
  • Food and medicines
  • Boarding costs
  • Medical treatments
  • Vaccinations
  • TNR

Your donation will go directly to Petzone veterinary clinic where currently there is an outstanding bill of over AED 47,000. By reducing their bills, 38smiles will be able to further their rescue work with the aim of re-homing as many pets as possible into loving forever homes.
