It’s a common story and one that SAGA Humane Society hears much too often –“I brought my dog or cat from another country and now I can’t take him back with me.” Or, even worse, “I went to another country to get my pet and now I don’t want him anymore”. You would imagine that people who go through all the trouble and cost of importing a pet would be committed to caring for it for the rest of its life. As all responsible animal lovers know – a pet is a lifelong commitment. Pets are not disposable.

Sadly for sweet, sweet Mocha, he was just abandoned like a piece of garbage on the street. He was brought to San Pedro from Mexico and then dumped when his irresponsible owner didn’t want him anymore. If only they had brought him to SAGA straight away. Unfortunately, some people make the unbelievable decision to just leave their dog to a life of danger, disease and misery on the streets even when we have a very good humane society who will care for the animal and find it a loving new home.

Little Mocha ended up becoming a street dog, his only companions a group of street dwelling alcoholics from whom he was able to scavenge small amounts of food and the occasional kindness.

One day he was badly savaged by a group of dogs. He received very serious injuries to his neck, which with no care, gradually grew into a huge hole. Finally, someone took pity on Mocha and brought him into the loving care of SAGA Humane Society, where he immediately received the very best in veterinary care. The staff worked very hard to give Mocha the attention and medical support he needed until he recovered fully – the only thing to left remind anyone of his terrible experience was a scar on his neck.

Like so many dogs that SAGA Humane Society rescue, Mocha was a very sweet dog – just like his namesake – and it wasn’t long before a wonderful family met him and fell in love with his courage and cute personality. Now Mocha has the permanent and responsible home he deserved from the beginning. He has a forever home.

If you or someone you know has to give up their pet for any reason at all,
call SAGA on 226 3266 and they will be more than happy to help. All dogs and cats deserve a sweet, sweet ending.

We on Caye Caulker see so many sad stories of animal abuse. We being small can usually foster, heal and find homes for our animals. However at times we cant. At times we need help not wanting to euthanize sweet animals that could be adopted and then we call SAGA. They have always welcomed our animals even with the overload they have..they are a great organization.
