Pet owners are uniting online in a petition calling for the opening of a public dog park in Dubai. The online campaign is posted on Care2.com and has so far received over 1,000 signatures from eager owners looking for a place to bring their dogs for a day out.
Following the establishment of pet facilities like animal hotels, grooming salons and daycare kennels in Dubai, a public park is next on the list of needs for dog owners.
The campaign was launched by Aideen O’Mara, of the Urban Tails Pet Resort, who hopes that the many signatures will catch the attention of the Dubai Municipality. She also suggested that the proposed dog park have an entrance fee to ensure that it would be properly maintained.
