Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital

The Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital (ADFH) is the first public institution in the United Arab Emirates providing comprehensive veterinary health care services exclusively for falcons. Established by Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi and opened on 3rd of October, 1999, Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital has become the largest falcon hospital in the UAE and in the world with a patient influx of more than 110,000 patients since its opening.

In 2010, the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital was put in charge to manage the newly founded Abu Dhabi Animal Shelter upon the decision of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council. ADFH is also the only authorized veterinary hospital in the Abu Dhabi Emirate to conduct the neutering for the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Run) program of the Abu Dhabi Emirate.

ADFH started its own falcon breeding center in 2011 to breed falcons.   

Description

The hospital has individual air-conditioned rooms for over 200 birds. Each year about 6,000 falcons enter its care.[1] It offers annual check-ups because it is often difficult to recognise whether a falcon has a health issue.[]

Passports

Since the United Arab Emirates introduced falcon passports it is the ADFH's prerogative to issue them.[2]

Animal Shelter

The Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital also manages an animal shelter. This is based on the approval of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council of the Abu Dhabi government.[3] The facility can accommodate hundreds of stray dogs and cats.[4]
