You'll need to follows your Google Maps App to get there! - but just on the outskirts of Dubai is a charming animal sanctuary, that really cares for the animals, and wants all visitors to truly experience what its like to be around them. You can bring your own food and feed them; the staff will let the children touch... More

We had gone to Posh Paws Animal Sanctuary in Al Khawaneej.Loved the experience and so did my little girl.

My daughter enjoyed feeding the goats, cows, petting the birds and holding the hamster. they have ostrich, iguana, owl (huge size) and many more .

we have been there so many times. we call it the crazy zoo. it's very messy and dirty and the kids love it. all are rescued animals and there is a huge variety. they do pony rides too. i was a bit disappointed when they started charging entrance fees. we always gave a donation and i preferred it that way.

It was recommended to me and when you owner was there, there was a real buzz about it. The last time I was there it was a bit shell like, big and echoey.

My little girl "CC" just loves this place. You really get up close and personal with the animals here. Never busy, and fun to spend an hour or two with little ones, there. :) :) :)
