Employees of Nassau Re (Cayman) Ltd. volunteered their time Friday to walk dogs and bathe puppies at the Cayman Islands Humane Society. The company also donated US$2,500 to the animal shelter.

Over four hours, the employees took more than 30 dogs for walks and bathed 25 puppies.

Lesley Walker, who is on the board of directors at the Humane Society, said in a press release that she was thrilled at the contribution by Nassau Re.

“We especially appreciate it when people let us know that the work we are doing for the animals in our community is recognized and valued, and that they want to help us to continue by supporting us,” she said.

“The funds are needed to replace outdated equipment in our surgery room, so that we can continue to carry out spays and neuters for community dogs.”

Graham Mackay, chief operating officer at Nassau Re, said, “Cayman Islands Humane Society has done a great job in caring for animals without a voice. We are very delighted to support the great work done by the Humane Society.”

The Humane Society provides shelter, care and attention to all unwanted companion animals, and seeks out responsible, loving homes for them. It also assists the community in promoting animal welfare and responsible pet ownership, and helps combat pet overpopulation and animal abuse through its spay and neuter clinic and community education.
