Muscat Dog Adoption is a small dog rescue organisation run by a group of volunteers in Muscat, Oman. Our aim is to rescue injured and abandoned Wadi dogs and then re-home them in Muscat or overseas.
Once rescued, the dogs are vaccinated, neutered, de-wormed, de-flead and treated for any injuries they may have. We keep some of the dogs safe in a small makeshift pound, where a kennel hand cleans, feeds and exercises them on a twice daily basis. We also have a small group of dedicated volunteers who visit regularly to socialise and exercise them. We ideally try to find foster homes for the dogs so they can experience living in a domestic setting before they get adopted.
We rely entirely on fundraising and donations to enable us to continue our rescue efforts. We have monthly running costs of the pound, as well as continuous vets bills, and we also contribute towards any dogs' travel costs who we send abroad. Our team of dedicated volunteers organise regular fundraising events such as; bingo/ quiz nights, car boot sales and online auctions to fund the above costs.
For information on what to do if you rescue a dog, please see our advice page.
If we do not manage to re-home a dog in Oman, we make plans to send the dog to an adoption group in the USA where they usually find homes quickly. In June 2018 we began a partnership with Animal Ark, a no kill shelter, in Minneapolis who have rehomed five of our Wadi dogs!
In August 2019, we started two new partnerships with; Fast Friends Greyhound Adoption in New Hampshire and Greyhound Friends of New Jersey who have rehomed many of our dogs!
We look forward, with the help of our rescue partners, to being able to rescue and rehome more Wadi dogs than was possible before!
