The Royal Commission for AlUla is leading the way as the first government entity in Saudi Arabia to establish a holistic animal welfare programme. Through this programme, our goal is to elevate the health and welfare of domestic animals, sustain the environment and enhance the quality of life for AlUla community.
Central to our programme is the AlUla Animal Welfare Centre, inaugurated on September 1st, 2023, with the aim of fostering positive change in the lives of stray animals in our community.
The centre comprises two key initiatives:
The AlUla Veterinary Clinic leads the implementation of the internationally recognised stray animal management programme known as, Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return, designed to address the challenges of free-roaming dogs and cats in AlUla County. The programme’s objective is to improve the welfare of domestic animals, reduce the population of strays, and prevent disease outbreaks through suitable vaccinations and parasite prevention. By doing so, we not only safeguard the health and safety of the animals but also contribute to the well-being of the environment and the community.
