Great News from Saga Humane Society



Saga Vet Receives Unrestricted Permanent License
    Saga Humane Society is extremely happy to confirm the report that Dr. Lauren Henckel has received her unrestricted, permanent license to practice at the Saga Humane Society Veterinary Clinic.
    Back in June, Saga Humane Society was in danger of closing down as it could not employ Dr. Henckel as a full-time vet due to discrepancies in her application to work as a full time vet on the island. There were forces in the works to hinder her approval for a work permit, but luckily all that is in the past and Dr. Henckel has received her permanent license. For any of you who would like to continue to support Saga and use the Clinic services, Dr. Henckel is able to treat any and... all animals without restriction.
    You may not know that 75% of the money needed to provide the community with a Humane Society comes from the veterinary clinic SAGA runs, which provides both free and for-charge care.  It is this income that pays for all of the other services.


This is what SAGA does for you and the animals of San Pedro:
    * Dog Patrols to pickup stray, dangerous, diseased, maltreated, abandoned or injured animals.
    * Responds to complaints of dog attacks, dog fights, noise nuisance and other negative interactions between the animal population and humans.
    * Provides free rabies shots for all animals.
    * Provides free or low cost medical treatment for animals belonging to those suffering financial hardship.
    * Provides a shelter to house, feed and treat the homeless or mistreated animals of San Pedro.
    * Provides animal adoption services, providing many local families with much loved pets and guard dogs.
    * Assures that all people who want to adopt are able to provide good care for the animal.
    * Assures all animals placed for adoption are spayed or neutered and have been given a clean bill of health with all shots up to date.
   * Provides free or low cost spays & neuters to help prevent overpopulation.
    * Provides humane euthanasia when appropriate and eliminate the need for the Town Board to use poison as an alternative.
    * Provides educational programs to help the people of San Pedro learn how to care for a healthy, happy pet.
    Because SAGA operates as a not-for-profit organization, it has not had the resources to develop an expensive, high tech clinic, but has done a remarkable job saving many lives and preventing thousands of unwanted litters.  SAGA can only improve its facilities if it is able to operate a veterinary clinic to support its important work in the community, as outlined above.
    SAGA is beloved by the community and by many who visit San Pedro and have seen first-hand the remarkable job that they have done reducing the stray population and eliminating the need for the cruel and very unpopular method of poisoning to control strays.  This is why many veterinarians from abroad donate drugs and equipment to assist them in their much needed work.  These drugs allow SAGA to treat animals in their care as well as those who cannot afford private veterinary care.

SAGA Vet receives unrestricted, permanent license to practice in San Pedro

The San Pedro SAGA Humane Society has been providing humane services to animals of San Pedro since it was founded in March of 1999. Among the services provided are: dog patrols to pickup strays, dangerous, diseased, mistreated/abused, abandoned or injured animals; respond to complaints of dog attacks, dog fights, noise nuisance and other negative interactions between animals, provide free rabies shots for all animals, provide free or low cost medical treatment to animals of individuals who may otherwise not be able to afford it; serve as a shelter where homeless or mistreated animals may receive food and treatment as well as serves as an adoption agent to animal lovers among other services.

SAGA'S journey to acquire a full time veterinarian started in April of this year. In June, committee members saw an approaching end to their struggle when a temporary conditional permit was issued to Dr. Lauren Henkel (Veterinarian). This permit allowed Dr. Henkel to provide veterinary services to strays, suffering animals and pets belonging to underprivileged owners. While the Humane Society was offering veterinary services, the terms of the permit were unclear as to what would qualify an individual as being "underprivileged".

After a 23-week process, the San Pedro SAGA Humane Society is extremely happy to report that Dr. Henckel received her unrestricted, permanent license to practice at the SAGA Humane Society Clinic on Saturday October 2nd, 2010. Dr. Henckel is excited at the opportunity to provide services to ALL residents of San Pedro and their pets. SAGA offers monthly specials to its patrons. For the month of October, being the month of Halloween, SAGA is offering discounted spays and neuters to all cats, and at no cost for black cats. The community is also invited to start planning for SAGA's annual Halloween Bash. Details of this activity will be released as it becomes available.

The SAGA Board would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the people of San Pedro and everyone who signed their petition, Facebooked and posted on message boards in support of SAGA, with special thanks to Minister Manuel Heredia, Minister Rene Montero, Dr. Miguel DePaz, Ms. Iraida Gonzalez, Humane Society International, Eileen and Dan Jamison at Dande's, Phil and Marie of Gecko Graphics, Colette Kase of Conch Creative, Marty Casado of Ambergriscaye.com, Mr. Nano Guerrero of SP Town Council and Mayor Elsa Paz, Ms. Tillett of the Health Dept., Tom and Val Gilbert, and the dedicated SAGA Staff Dr. Lauren Henckel, Ingrid Lima, and Noami Castro.

The SAGA Humane Society and Veterinary Clinic is open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm. On Saturdays, SAGA is open from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon. In addition to veterinary services, SAGA is available to render assistance with adoptions, surrenders, abuse/neglect reports and other animal issues. SAGA's Clinic is closed on Sundays and Mondays. For more information and to make an appointment, please call 226-3266, and for emergencies, SAGA may be reached at 660-4303.
