Paws for Wine raises money to achieve one of the animal organization’s three mission pillars: Continuing to offer free community spay and neuter surgeries throughout Cayman to end pet overpopulation. Almost 3,000 surgeries have been sponsored to date, the organization says.

Kids Care

Kids Care, the Animal Welfare Education Program started in September 2015, is an educational program for schools, reaching into homes and the workplace. Volunteers provide materials, interactive games and talks, covering topics such as the advantages of pet sterilization, the responsibilities of animal ownership and how to care for companion animals. In the process, it helps to raise a generation of community-minded children who learn compassion toward animals and each other.

Operation Grass Roots

Operation Grass Roots has been made possible by an initial donation from 100 Women Who Care, with the support and pro-bono medical expertise of Dr. Brenda Bush of Island Veterinary Services. This program assists disadvantaged communities in working together to improve the lives of people and their companion animals. Clinics offer preventive care for pets and free registration and identification through micro-chipping.

Tickets are on sale at Must Love Dogs in Camana Bay, Bliss Yoga, Island Veterinary Services, Animal House and Hot Tropics Jewelry store. For more information, email [email protected] or call 938-2273.
