Our Story

Animals and Us is a registered non-profit animal welfare founded in 2006 and licensed by the government on September 2017.

Our goal is reducing pain and fear inflicted on animals by humans. We rescue abandoned and stray animals, we seek veterinary assistance and help them find forever homes. We also try to educate the public about the responsibility of animal ownership.

Animals and Us works closely with other organizations to promote animal welfare across the UAE.

The founder, Michelle Francis, moved from Kolkata to Fujairah in 2003 to pursue her teaching career; while in Fujairah she faced several cases of animal abuse and neglect, she couldn’t turn a blind eye or walk away. Michelle has dedicated her life to this cause.
