Stray Dogs and Cats in Jamaica

I just want to make all Jamaican tourists aware of a new organization that is working to provide free and subsidized sterilizations for the stray cats and dogs as well as for those whose owners cannot afford vet care on the island of Jamaica.

We are raising funds to purchase a mobile spay unit which will allow us to travel throughout the island to provide vet care for the dogs and cats that would never receive any type of vet care.

We are also working to develop a humane education program that well reach all ages in the publc school system.

Your support would be most appreciated and all donations go to the animals. We are an all volunteer organization.

International Spay/Neuter Network

You can find us at www.spay-neuterjamaica.org

Thank you.

We are aware of each other. She does great work with rescuing and rehoming. Our work involves preventing the birth of more unwanted animals. Perhaps one day there will be no need for shelters in Jamaica.

We brought home a cat from Jamaica when we were there in 2004. We didn't want a cat, but he wanted us. His name is Jamaica and he is awesome. He is spayed, and living in the cold northeast of the US.

I am happy someone sees the plight of these animals. There is a mad man in downtown Montego Bay with a dozen dogs following him. what every scraps he finds from the bins he shares with the dogs,each time I see him the pack gets larger as they are breeding up with no-one to help.
