Shelter adoptions on increase

The shelter population of cats and dogs at the Humane Society is gradually being reduced. 

“So far we have been doing good. In a month we’ve had nine adult cats, five kittens, 25 adult dogs and 10 puppies adopted with 49 pets adopted in total,” said the shelter’s Assistant Manager Jai Ram 


The adoption process 

There are three basic tasks potential adopters have to carry out in order to adopt. These are: Going to the shelter; picking which animal you would like to adopt; and filling out the form, after which a representative will visit your home to ensure that everything is safe. 

The adoption fee for cats and kittens is now $35, while the fee for dogs and puppies is now $45. All pets adopted are spayed or neutered and have had their vaccines. 

The adoption fees are just one of the ways that the Humane Society raises money to keep its facilities open and running. 

Also helping to bring money into the coffers is the Cayman Islands Humane Society Thrift Shop, which has anything from soft furnishing to clothes and shoes.  


Sponsorship fees 

You can be a hero today by sponsoring a dog’s bowl for $40 a month, $120 for three months, $240 for six months, or even a year for $480. You can make a difference to the conditions in which the animals live in the shelter.  

People who cannot have a pet in their household can still help out the pets in the shelter by getting involved with them. The Humane Society provides a safe and caring environment for hundreds of dogs every year as they wait to be adopted.
