This week, sadly, we couldn't choose just one pet. The Cayman Islands Humane Society is so full of animals they have had to close their doors. The issue of unwanted animals in the Cayman Islands has been exasperated by the fact the Cayman Islands Department of Agriculture have also had to close their doors because 53 dogs were confiscated from one single property.
But, there's hope for the animals of Grand Cayman and you, dear reader are it!
The Cayman Islands Humane Society and all the staff at your favourite radio station understand that not everyone can adopt a cat or dog. But did you know you can help without adopting?
Here are some simple ways you can help, today:
- Foster a cat or kitten dog or puppy for a weekend, a month or until you can find them a home
- Come and sit with the cats in the cat room, it helps ease the stress for the cats and it will help you relax too
- Take a dog for a walk, hey, why not take a dog to the beach? The shelter have bandanas the dogs can wear saying they are adoptable
- Volunteer to help feed animals and clean dog kennels and cat cages, or answer the phone and greet visitors
- Are you a social media user? Come and visit the cats and dogs and share pictures and videos of how cute they are, you never know who may be moved to foster or adopt.
- Donate clothes and other unwanted items to the Humane Society thrift store, the money raised can help pay for medication, food etc.
- Volunteer to be a home checker, the more home checks that can be made the quicker the animals can leave the shelter
- Encourage friends and neighbours to spay and nueter their pets and prevent more unwanted animals being born.
- Share this post!
So please, stop by the Cayman Islands Humane Society today and ask how you can help. Even if you listen from overseas, you can share this post, you just never know who it will reach. The cats,kittens,dogs and puppies will really appreciate your help to keep them alive so they can find their loving forever home. <3
