Cruelty to animals in Qatar is illegal. It's punishable by law and should be strictly implemented. Chapter eight - the Crimes Committed on Animals on Criminal Penal Code (No 11 of 2004) states as below:
Recently, two incidents of alleged animal cruelty, particularly to dogs in The Pearl Qatar area, were reported resulting in the death of one dog because of excessive dehydration and stress after its owners left them in the balcony of their homes without food and anything to drink. Angel, the first dog, jumped from the balcony and died on the spot, but puppy Saluki was fortunate enough to have survived the 5 hours he was locked out and was rescued by concerned neighbors.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no law on abandoning animals, and this is probably one of the reasons why we can find many stray pets on the street.
Whether there is a law or not, everyone must understand and acknowledge the responsibility of having a pet.
