Oh gosh that is so terrible. I am so upset after reading this. I have been coming to Caye Caulker for several years and now I don't know if I want to continue coming if this is how animals are treated.
You are right eradication is not the solution its sterilization and I do not know in heaven's name why someone would say that the PAWS humane society is doing nothing. I have seen PAWS in action myself along with a lot of my friends who can vouched for this each year when we visit them.
PAWS humane society has been the first humane society to bring large charity vet groups such as World Vets and The Canadian Animal Assistance Team to Belize to provide all animals with free sterilization and free veterinary care, vaccines, you name it and PAWS Humane Society continue their efforts to offer free sterilization at their clinic and controlling the animal population of stray cats and dogs with their Trap , neuter and return program.
For someone to say that PAWS Humane Society is not helping the animals of Caye Caulker is a big lie. If anyone wants to witness the wonderful work they do themselves, they should visit them to see their clinic where they get their work done, and see all the lovely abuse animals that were rescued and given a second chance and now live there in their sanctuary haven.
They are located about a block away from the Atlantic Bank walking west toward the back beach. You will see a yellow with black spots painted cabana that looks like a Jaguar. For the people who want to contact them their site is www.pawanimalsanctuarybelize.com
I agree with collyk that a lot of people are critical of humane societies but this is why its good for people to visit to see the work for themselves.
For all the other humane societies in other parts of Belize that are doing such wonderful work, keep up the good work guys! We love you!!
