I love this sign and have a few friends that have been saying this to me for a long time. Here we are at the Belize City's Humane Society meeting with Caroline Bowen and her gang that do a great job of helping the animals over there.

Check out this very special four legged lady who was very keen to let us all in.

It isn't obvious just yet but this furry friend only has three legs, which doesn't seem to hinder her very much at all.

Heidi who loves everyone and everything was an instant target for Susie and gave up some love.

They have a lot of space for their area and have it set up very nicely. They have field trips come to visit from the local schools so the tables are very much needed.

Susie is like the queen of the place and gets to hang out well where ever she wants to really.

Caroline was stopping a fight between to macho male dogs, she is a mum of two boys so I guess used to it.
Another cheeky dog who claims her table and stays on it.

Over to the bathing area, we got the full tour of every nook and cranny of their lovely shelter.

The grooming area of course as there is a bath ready and waiting to freshen up the furry ones and make them fluffy again.

This poor little thing had been found and rescued, she may not have too much fur right now but you wait and see how that will grow now that she is safe.

Check her out close up, she has a few sores and isn't too lively right now but with the care and attention she is getting she will transform in no time.

This poor guy has a few wounds that were being cleaned up by Tyrone and his helper.

Ok warning some sad shots coming up of some dogs that have just been rescued.

Check out that smile.
Little one again
Heidi who wants to save every animal on the planet, this lovely person won't even kill a spider.
This dog is so in need of a home but a lot of space as he can escape from anywhere and they are hoping to get him on a farm somewhere.

This one is very happy at the shelter and has been there a long time, as you can see they are all well fed and looked after under Caroline's watch.
Now over to the cat area.

This blew us all away as the cats are home away from home, check out how they have decked out the cages and what they have in them for the cats to roam over.

Nothing goes to waste if donated to the shelter and Caroline and her gang go to the dump and bring back all sorts of weird and wonderful items.

There is a cooker and a fridge and even a clock!

Check out how small that kitten is.

It was like party time is this crib they were every where and supper happy too.
Here we have a decent picture of Caroline Bowen who does an amazing job of keeping this shelter running.You look up and low and behold there is another cat not far away.

These cats should be called Heidi as they are red heads too, well sort of.

That's better a nice one of Heidi smiling which she usually does.

Look at me!
This cheeky one is saying let me in there to play with those cats.

They have put tunnels within the cages to get to one from the other which is super cool.

Most of them play nicely together.

This one wanted to say hi up close and personnel!

Check me out!
Sharing ideas which was what today was all about, they have things we don't and visa versa.

Jodie Bowen and Katy Eggert brain storming.

The cats were happy to have all these visitors today to hang out with.

Caroline is just way too funny, she saw that this was somewhere and broken and had a wrod with the right people and within a couple of hours it was delivered to the HS to be used for the animals to play in.

I was falling in love.
So was Heidi as this character was every where and just so happy to be hanging out with the girls.
Group shot of San Pedro and Belize City coming together to make things better for the animals.

Quick time out before we head to the tourist village to see how they make the most of their stand there.
Stumpy and friend still hanging out on tables.

After the tourist village we met up with some of the girls that had come to BC the night before for lunch. As is often the case we ended up at the Riverside Tavern which is the best place whilst in the city. As is often the case there were others from San Pedro there also, you can't get away with anything even if you try! However I stuck to not drinking or eating badly whatever people say I know the truth!
I never ordered this stack of onion rings nor did I eat them.

Chap joined the cackling group of women that we were, anyone would think it was a witches convention as there were eleven of us and Chap!

The lady on the left is Annie who is their vet at the BCHS, great to meet her and know that we have some expertease on hand whilst we haven't got a Humane Society vet right now.

Check out those happy faces, we are about to eat that's why!
We had the mini burgers with fish, which were ok but not as good as out slyders in Lime.

We shared a salad with the burgers, I figure if I eat what Heidi eats I will be her size soon hopefully!
Katy who doesn't have to worry about her weight had this juicy burger which she said was oh so fine.It was a great day spent with some great people, lots of ideas to start on. Anyone following this and wanting more info on our fundraising events can email me on [email protected].

Wow, great report. I wish that the cats at Saga had such a cool place to for the animals to live and play. About a year and a half ago I was at Saga picking up some meds for my dog. I saw a cute little black kitten. But of course, they are all so cute when they are little. A year later I am in there picking up meds again and I spy a black cat. When I asked about him I realized he was the same little guy that was there the year before. He had lived his whole life in a small cage. Yes he was treated very humanely. He was healthy, well fed and certainly was allowed some time outside of the cage. But most of the time he was in the cage. I couldn't stand the idea of in living his whole life in the cage so I eventually took him home - where he is thriving! Cats can survive in a cage, but they sure love the ability to roam around, sunbathe, hide and seek etc. I look forward to Saga eventually getting enough available space to offer those types of living arrangements for the cats.
