Your pet could soon be linked to your Emirates ID!

Rescue workers across the UAE are on a mission to link pet owners Emirates ID's up to their animals. 

If the new scheme is approved it could ease the issue of lost or stolen pets. It can also pin point a person that abandons their animal. 

It is the law in Dubai to register your pet, to keep a record of their existence on Dubai Municipality's records, the tag must be renewed annually, making pet owners question why these tags have not bee linked up to animal owner's Emirates IDs yet.

Lesley Muncey, a volunteer at Feline Friends said to The National: “There should be some recourse for people taking on pets – a link to their ID or passport so it could be monitored more.”
