Thumbs down Pets banned and evicted in JBR



People living in Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) have been told to get rid of all their pets by the end of the month. Angry residents in Bahar 5 building say JBR’s developer gave them a 30-day deadline to remove their animals at the start of this month. And it is believed dog owners in other towers whose pets have had complaints made against them have been written to with similar notice.

Briton Trevor Bondoro, 28, is trying to lift the ban on pets, which includes cats and birds, and has formed the JBR Dogs Association. He says he has spoken to 78 dog owners in JBR who have all received notice letters. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to re-home my dog, have it put down or send him home - it is inhumane,” said Bondoro. “Prior to investing in the development several of us were informed pets were welcome and Dubai Properties would in fact be constructing a dog park for the residents.

“This was the response most of us had prior to investing our money and securing units in the development.”
Bondoro added: “The reaction from people has been outrage because the rule applies to everyone, homeowners and tenants alike. “Everyone I know of in Bahar 5 with dogs has had letters - that’s at least 17 people. Now people in Rimal, Bahar 6, Murjan and Sadaf have also been written to.”
Marie Lepore, a 26-year-old Canadian, said: “There’s no way I’m getting rid of my dog. He is part of the family. It’s not fair because tenants asked before they moved in and were told they could keep pets.”

Fish are however, allowed to be kept. An official spokesperson for Dubai Properties LLC said last night: “The contract clearly states that pets are not allowed in Jumeirah Beach Residence. Increasingly we have been getting complaints that many residents are flouting the rules pertaining to pets. We are ensuring that residents who have pets get sufficient time to make alternative arrangements before the strict enforcement of this rule.”

lol - I did look for it on the main forum. In any case, even after reading the title I wouldn't have guessed that it was about JBR and pets!

Dogs in apartments...the howling when they are left alone - I suffered for two years because someone upstairs worked nights and the dog missed the owner and howled like crazy till he came home.

Dogs don't belong in apartments...I can't see what the problem with cats and other pets are though?

Cats should be able to come and go as they please - they cant do that in apartments. Agreed with the birds and such though, it is going a bit far.

I'm trying to stick for them on the fact that they shouldnt be cooped up indoors all day.

I like to watch them - I just dont want them near me or my house.
