A specialized veterinary medical team has been provided in each slaughterhouse to examine the animals prepared for slaughter before slaughter and the meat after slaughter to ensure its suitability for consumption. This ensures the production of healthy meat free of pathogens and preserves community members' health and safety.
The municipality has enabled the public to request sacrifices through several smartphone applications, such as "Zabehaty," "Zabayeh Al Jazeera," "Dhabayeh UAE," and "Halal Mazarana." Through these applications, users can choose the types of sacrifices, varieties, weights, cutting methods, and the place where they are delivered. The list of sheep available in the applications includes all types of sacrifices in local markets, such as local, Kashmiri, Somali, Jordanian, Australian, and others.
Abu Dhabi City Municipality is urging the public to avoid slaughtering animals outside of authorized slaughterhouses. This is considered a violation and is punishable by Law No. (2) of 2012 aims to preserve public appearance, health, and tranquility in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The municipality's sub-center inspection teams receive reports, follow up on them, and issue fines to violators.
