Saga Humane Society (established 1999) is based on Ambergris Caye, not Caye Caulker. We are aware of the situation on our sister island, but we too are less than 10 dedicated volunteers trying to make a difference to our island of 20,000 people and their animals. We have met with the Caye Caulker HS
and a representative of the Village Council on dog issues. Our recommendation was the same as it was on Ambergris Caye, have Government enforce existing Belize Law Dog Act Chap 153
. If you want to learn more about Saga HS, google us, visit our website, read about Operation SNIP
find us on Saga HS Facebook
or better yet stop by our clinic and meet our hard working dedicated staff. A staff who everyday make a difference in the lives of our island pets. Become informed about the issues effecting and limiting our humane societies.
Every humane society within Belize KNOWS about TNR, Spay & Neuter. We all actively fundraise to provide these services within our communities. None of us receive any government funding or reimbursement for our services. This is not to blame government, as they too are cash strapped. This is a developing economy with a rising standard of living, but still many vital community services are supplied by various NGO's.
It is easy to judge from afar, but it wasn't too long ago in North America and Europe that dogs roamed freely to breed. Now the breeding is at puppy mills and death is hidden behind sterile walls of a county shelter. Pet overpopulation is a problem the world over, not just Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye. Help us be part of the solution. Donate money directly to one of our humane society for a free spay/neuter.
