Cayman online dog boutique makes donation

Online dog boutique Doggoneit has donated $200 to Cayman Animal Rescue Enthusiasts to help it continue with its efforts, including paying for spay and neutering services and transporting local homeless animals to overseas shelters for adoption.

Delia Slater, owner of the one-stop Internet shop for dog clothing and accessories, said during a cheque presentation Saturday, 31 March at Camana Bay in Grand Cayman, “This is something I have wanted to do for a long time and being able to present this first of many cheques today was very exciting for me. I have been in business for just a year now and without my great customers who have come to Doggoneit and purchased items this donation would not be possible.”

CARE was formed in 2008 and its vision is to make the Cayman Islands a “No Kill” community and where every pet is wanted and homeless pets are a thing of the past. CARE also offers a free spay and neuter service and provides education in animal care.

Since 2009, CARE has arranged for and transported more than 600 dogs and cats to veterinarians for spay or neuter surgery, paid for entirely by the programme. It has also organised and transferred more than 170 homeless and unwanted puppies to state-of-the-art overseas facilities.

Ms Slater said, “As long as I continue to have great customers, I will continue to make donations to CARE to help them see their vision become a reality. It feels great to be able to give something back.”
