Pet Registration Campaign Extended


There has been a great response from the community to the new pet registration campaign with over 100 pet owners already completed the registration process.

The medical check and micro-chipping part of the registration for cats and dogs will continue to be free until October 31, 2018. The annual registration fee of SAR150 will also be waived during this period.

Additional Pet FAQs

Community Life would like to thank pet owners who attended the CommunityLife@KAUST “Pets in our Community” forum that was held on the evening of September 19. At the forum Community Life staff were on hand to answer questions about the pet guidelines and registration process. Community members also provided feedback and suggestions on how to improve pet services and facilities at KAUST.

We will be updating the Pet FAQs and Pets in our Community webpage shortly in response to the questions and issues raised at the forum by pet owners.

  1. I don’t understand why the registration fee is annual. We don’t register each year to KAUST Health. Why should our pets? Once registered, they are registered. According to me, owners should register new pets to play according the the new regulation. This is a bit ridiculous. I believe the registration fee and the high prices the vet charges will be enough money raised to cover for the expenses and to provide better vet services to the community.
