Welcome to Cairo Pets!
This website is a definitive resource for owning a pet, large or small, in Cairo, Egypt. We have:
- Nearly 100 verified listings for local veterinarians, pet stores, kennels, groomers and dog training facilities — this means we have verified their contact details and often times made a site visit.
- Information about the services provided for dogs, cats, birds, horses and anything else with wings or four legs — never run an unnecessary errand again!
- User Ratings — find out what others think of your neighborhood pet store.
- Lively forums for people to exchange information about owning dogs in Cairo — as well as stories about owning cats, birds, horses and other critters. Meet other pet owners who live here.
- Volunteer opportunities for those who want to get involved!
We are always looking to add new information. If there is something we have missed, send us an email. We’ll research it, get back to you and post it on the site for others to see.
Thanks for visiting!
Lulu and I recently flew back to the United States. Lulu is, annoyingly enough, slightly too big to travel in the plane with me so she has to fly cargo. Flying a pet by air cargo is stressful for both pet and owner. Mike Kidd at Pro Move International did an excellent job of listening [...]
Here at the Cairo Pets HQ, there are a few cats that hang around in the street. One in particular, has been the mother of many litters of kittens, and was starting to look a tad worn down. Most recently, she appeared to have had a surviving litter of 3. Our very own, Sarah Blakemore, [...]

A big shout out to our Cairo Pets members: Victoria, George, Ahmed, and Hatem for joining us! We [...]
Volunteer Day at S.P.A.R.E. Cairo Pets would like to thank Victoria, Carmen and George for their work at SPARE on Saturday. It takes a special person to give up their Saturday to come spend time with needy animals. Those cats and dogs are so in need of a little bit of companionship. Cairo Pets would [...]

In her spare time Midge enjoys eating, sleeping, [...]
As the weather gets hotter, my appetite for iced lattes gets bigger. The guys at the Costa Coffee in Zamalek make one of the best on the island. Lulu loves taking a walk there!
Well, I was noshing on one of my favorite (easy) dishes which is rice and beans. Normally, my bean of choice is black beans, but when I’m in Egypt that bean is Fava! I mean, of course! Anyway, Lucky was incredibly interested in my dish, and I thought, ‘Well, there’s no way she’ll want some [...]
On Saturday a group of volunteers and the Cairo Pets staff went to S.P.A.R.E. for a day of animal fun! We spent the day playing with the animals, bathing the dogs and brushing the cats. It was a lovely experience made possible by a kind and caring staff at the shelter. Not only did [...]
There aren’t many dog runs in Cairo. I’ve looked. I’ve heard rumors but I hadn’t seen anything that resembled a dog park until today. Today the fearless Cairo Pets staff, myself and my dog went to the unofficial dog run at the Gezeira club. To get there, we had to go to an “off the [...]
