Saluki International Rescue

Rescue, Rehabilitate, Rehome


A Bit About Us

We are a licensed organisation based in the United Arab Emirates, dedicated to rescuing stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered Salukis and Hounds and re-homing them. We rely on our trusted foster homes and volunteers and on social media to stay connected.

Adopting a Saluki

Hounds that need you

Adopting a Hound from Saluki International Rescue is easy to do, and by doing so you are saving more than just one life.  Each hound that is adopted frees up one of our Foster homes to take in another.

You don't have to be a hero, just someone willing and ready to bring the endless love of a Saluki/Hound into your life.

Fostering for Saluki International Rescue

Foster Based by choice

We believe a home environment is far more desirable for a rescued hound rather than boarding. We rely exclusively on volunteers to provide foster homes for our rescues until they find their forever homes.

Initially, before they enter a home they will be seen at the British Vet clinic in Abu Dhabi - Khalidiyah branch. A full health check with blood tests is carried out. Vaccinations, deworming, de ticking. microchipping and any medication, if necessary. If for any reason the dog has to be seen by a vet for a follow-up, etc, we will take him/her as soon as possible.

We will provide the bed, collar, leash, dog tag with our details, food, and a cuddly toy. All you need to give is love, cuddles, walks, and regular updates on a shared WhatsApp group with two SIR Admins, so we may post frequently and for them to be homed as soon as possible to the right family. We will do our best to visit you as often as we can (we have one Admin in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai). 

If you can offer your home for any amount of time please send us an email.

Other ways to Help

Being a Flight Buddy

Abed is waiting for a flight buddy to Paris!

We are proud to work with partners abroad and many of our Salukis need 'Flight Buddies' to fly to their new homes.

Being a flight buddy is one of the most easiest things to do, the Saluki is simply added to your ticket at the time of check-in.

You don't need to do anything else..

If you can help SIR by being a flight buddy please get in touch.
