As a resident, you are allowed to keep pets in your unit but you must comply with the community rules in addition to Dubai Municipality Regulations.

A notice of violation will be issued to violators who do not clean up after their pets as this issue affects the hygiene and cleanliness of the community. Repeated offenses may carry a fine.

You are not permitted to keep any animals in your home that are not deemed ‘household pets’. Examples of these are poultry, cows, goats, sheep, horses, swine, or wild animals. Please refer to the community rules, for more information or contact Dubai Municipality at 800 900 for the list of pets that are allowed in residential communities.

You may contact Community Security, 24 hours a day, or involve the local authorities for further escalation – call Dubai Police on 999.
