Donation helps animals in need

Cayman Wildlife Rescue and the
Cayman Islands Humane Society recently benefitted from a donation of
much-needed supplies. The two organisations take care of Cayman’s animals, wild
and domesticated, respectively, and rely on donations from the public and the
business community to keep up their work.

Petique recently donated supplies
including pet carriers, caging, leashes, food bowls and pet beds to the
organisations.

“We are just happy to do our part
by giving these items to help animals in need,” said Jackie Balls, owner of
Petique.

Carolyn Parker, president of the
Humane Society, expressed her gratitude for the donation, adding that some of
the donated items are being used as an added incentive for people to adopt one
of the many cats and dogs currently housed at the shelter on North Sound Road.

“We are currently offering a free
gift, while supplies last, for those persons adopting a cat or dog from the
shelter,” said Ms Parker.

For more information on the Humane
Society members of the public can call 949-1461 or visit the shelter to meet
the available cats and dogs ready for adoption. Members of the public can also
contribute by donating used items for the book loft and thrift shop, by
supporting the humane society shops or by volunteering at the shelter.

At Cayman Wildlife Rescue, the pet
carriers, cages, bird toys and food dishes will come in very handy as the
organisation works to rehabilitate injured and sick wild animals.

“All of these items will be used
for our animals in care, we are very grateful to receive these much needed
supplies,” said Alison Corbett, programme manager at Cayman Wildlife Rescue.

Cayman Wildlife Rescue is a
programme of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands of more information
