Dubai is planning to build a hotel especially for dogs and cats as part of a new AED54.1m ($14.7m) new project aimed at providing services for domestic pets which is due to be completed by the end of the year, Dubai Municipality said.
The new ‘animals hotel’ will be 835 square metres in size and will provide basic facilities for cats, dogs and other domestic pets to stay at while their owners are on holiday abroad.
The latest addition to the Dubai hospitality scene is part of a birds’ market project currently being built in the Al Warsan area of Dubai.
Currently 52 percent complete, the total cost of the project will be around Dhs54.1m and is due to be completed in November 2013, the Dubai Municipality confirmed.
Hussain Nassir Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality said the project “has been established after a thorough study about the circumstances and requirements of a domestic animal market in Dubai,” and is likely to have “direct positive impact” on the market in Dubai.
“We hope that the project will boost both the trade and tourism,” he said of the new project.
