Pets in Uganda

Hello everyone,

Many of us in Uganda have four-legged friends. What about you? Do you have one or more pets? Share your experience with us!

What are the formalities to import pets in Uganda? What about pet adoption procedures in the country? Did you bring your pet from your home country to your host country? If so, did everything turn out fine?

What do Ugandans think about pets? Are they comfortable with dogs, cats or unusual pets?

Share your advice!


We have 3 dogs 1 cat. All adopted from the local shelter.

The shelter also provides all the required immunization and medical care if and when required.

Vetluv Animal Care / USPCA shelter

Dr. Alex, I believe, is in charge.


I love pets, but I as I travel a lot. I don't keep a pet in Uganda.
