Who wins with the closing of Saga and their services ? NOT the community. Please don't beat up one of our community built (successful) non-profit organizations.
Sometimes in life you fight so hard to win , and when the dust settles you found out you really lost frown

I just don't see anyone here beating up or trying to close SAGA. That kool-aid some of you are drinking is potent. I don't know anyone who wants SAGA to close!

Tim - I ABSOLUTELY do not want SAGA to close, and I don't know anyone who does. But that doesn't mean that I can't comment on aspects of it that maybe could be improved.

SAGA will either be granted the full commercial vet license, or not. We've signed the petition requesting for the board to grant the license; however, it may not happen. Does SAGA really have to close its shelter if it doesn't employ a vet? Can it restructure a bit and focus on sheltering, round ups and working with private vets on island and from other parts of Belize to do pro bono spay/neuters? Yes, Belize needs choices - absolutely! But having even one licensed vet on the island with top notch equipment, facilities and skills is light years ahead of even last year. Until such time as SAGA is able to employ a vet, or some other licensed vet opens a second practice on the island, I hope SAGA will consider a Plan B - No licensed Vet but fully functional Shelter contingency plan. Many have suggested how this might work to deaf ears and screams of 'you want to kill SAGA'. No, really, just would like to see all the good work and progress SAGA has accomplished toward managing the stray population and helping shelter needy animals continue no matter what.

Its a shame. Two vets are always better than one, especially since both are foreigners, not tied to Belize and as happened in the past, leave and then you are stuck with no vet. I think there is a need for humane societies that can offer meds and treatment at little or no cost for those people who can not afford it and private vets for those who prefer it. I've watched vet care for domestic animals change drastically over two odd decades here and know the human societies have contributed a great deal to animal care awareness. Private vets opened offices in San Ignacio, Belmopan, Belize City and Corozal; possibly other places I'm not aware of. I wish we had a vet in Placencia and keeping my fingers crossed one who just graduated from vet school in MX decides to open an office in this area. Some cases require a second opinion, like us humans do. My wonderful vets are Mike deShield and Jane Crawford at Animal Medical Centre in Belize City, but I carried the dogs up to Sheila Schmeling in Corozal for a second opinion. Why does it have to be either/or when two vets are better than one? Give your pets the edge. The vets will figure out what the market can sustain and adjust to it.

Looking at the accounts, if I am reading them correctly and I am sure Peter will step in and correct me but I see SAGA's income decreasing by close to $130,000 odd thousand dollars should they not be issued a vets license and if that is the case they probably could not survive,

Drug Income $123,000 bze $83,000 clear

Vetinary income $46,000 bze

All lost if they don't get a license. that's a chunk of cash.
