Over the past year, Saga Humane Society, along with representatives from Darwin Animal Doctors and Traveling Animal Doctors (TDAD), have kept in dialogue to create a partnership that would allow Saga, among other humane societies in Belize, to better address the issues of humane living. As TDAD arrived on Tuesday, November 15th, Saga shared exciting news for San Pedro Town that guarantees 24/7 animal veterinarian coverage during the week.

According to Saga, a contract has been drafted and signed, which would secure a two-year full time veterinarian and Humane Education Curriculum Coordinator. The contract commences on Sunday, January 1, 2017, and the approval of all licenses and permits are expected to be finalized by the Veterinary Surgeons Board of Belize before the end of 2016.

Saga and TDAD will focus efforts on Saga’s core values of population control and humane education. The TDAD team is being sponsored by a long-time friend of Saga, honorary board member and board certified Belize, Veterinarian Dr. Orlando Baptist. Senior Veterinarian, Dr. Donald Tummons of Duck Hollow Animal Hospital has been installed to consult with Dr. Baptist regarding animal care practices, to further the mission to control animal population through Spay/Neuter campaigns, and to oversee International Veterinarian Services including travel teams.

As Saga’s mission is to prevent cruelty and promote kindness, President and Founder of Saga, Eileen Jamison, believes that Saga should emphasize on teaching our youth how to care for animals. “In order to achieve this goal, we must work to control the overpopulation of cats and dogs, monitor the care of animals on the island and educate our future generations. We must teach our children and learn ourselves side by side with them, what humane living truly means,” said Jamison.
