Supporting Our Community at GVC


At GVC we have a strong sense of social purpose; being part of and supporting our community is very important to us.  We care deeply about the welfare of all animals. One GVC initiative for supporting our community is to help the people who take care of the stray and street cat populations in Abu Dhabi.

If you belong to a feline rescue or aid group, and would like to know more about our initiatives and how GVC can help support the work you do, please contact us

Trap Neuter Return (TNR) Initiatives at GVC

Since 2016, Dr Katrin and the team have dedicated one day per month to neutering and health-checking stray cats and street cats at specially discounted prices.
GVC is able to neuter around 20 cats on a single day and the cats can be returned back to their territories on the same evening or next day.

If you are feeding or caring for a street cat which is not yet neutered, please follow us on Facebook or Instagram or contact us to find out details of our next TNR day. Please email Dr Katrin to book a slot and find out current prices.


So, why should you adopt a pet rather than buy one ?

There are so many reasons…

Firstly, there are a huge number of pets in need of good homes, especially in this country, and many are living in less than ideal circumstances whilst they wait for their forever homes.

Many have arrived in this situation through sad circumstances – owners abandoning them when it has come time for them to leave the UAE, or having been put out on the streets because they are no longer cute and cuddly.

Secondly, when you adopt a pet, you know what you are getting. Pets for adoption  have usually had a full health check and have received vaccinations, de-worming and sometimes even been microchipped and neutered before they are adopted out. Also, they have been character assessed, which means that you are much likely to find your perfect furry partner – one that will be suited to your lifestyle and your family.

And lastly, adoption is the moral and ethical choice in order to stop or reduce the breeding of pets that are often taken away from their mothers too early and not cared for properly, exposing them to illnesses and diseases.

We always have a large number of pets looking for their furr-ever homes, so please contact us or check our Facebook and Instagram pages for pictures and more info.
