Yes, you can book your pet in to be spayed or neutered at the shelter. Please call us on 949 1461 to find out more and book an appointment. You will be asked to not give your pet any food after 8pm and no water after midnight before the morning of surgery. Please bring your pet in first thing in the morning and you will be told when you can pick up your pet after surgery.
Spaying or neutering your dog does not change their behavior. It is a myth. Any dog will get fat if they eat too much and don’t get enough exercise. Spaying your dog prevents unwanted attention from male dogs every 6 months. If a dog is spayed before their first cycle, it nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer and prevents uterine infections and cancer. Neutering males prevents behaviors such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam. Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and enlargement of the prostate gland, and greatly reduces their risk of perianal tumors.
Yes! You can bring your cat or dog to be microchipped. We encourage people to get their pet microchipped so that if your pet is lost, they can be easily identified if found by the shelter or vet practices on the island. We see many cases of lost pets surrendered by good Samaritans who don’t know they are owned and want to help the lost animals. Our only way to identify them is by reading their microchip information.
If you are struggling to provide food for your cat or dog, then you can apply to be included on our welfare food list. Before food is provided you are required to have a home visit from one of our volunteers to assess your eligibility for welfare food.
No, we don’t provide daycare or boarding for dogs or cats. There are several companies on-island that board animals and house-sit. You can find the most up-to-date information online.
The best thing to do is contact the Animal Welfare Officers at the Department of Agriculture. One of the animal welfare officers is Erik Bodden. He can be contacted on email@example.com or 928 1153. You can also report it to us, and we will pass it to them. You should provide both the street name and house number and the house description where the animal is.
Take a photo of the dog, ask your neighbors if they know the dog and its owner, post the photo to the Facebook page for the Cayman Islands Humane Society and it will be shared so that all can see it. If you are unable to keep the dog temporarily then bring it to the shelter.
Yes, we can lend you a cat trap for a small deposit and show you how to use it so that the cats can be trapped for spay/neuter and then returned. We can also direct you to other non-profit partners who can help with larger cat colonies.
Yes, we can. It depends on where you are. Please contact the shelter on (345) 949 1461 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which pet you are interested in. We will contact you back with information.
We are always looking for flight escorts to help get some lucky animals to their forever homes overseas. Direct flights are encouraged for logistics and to limit the time the animals are in transit. We will advise you and help with all the paperwork! Please contact email@example.com with your name, flight date, airport, and number if available.
The Department of Environmental Health has a responsibility to remove dead animals. You can contact them on 949 6696 to let them know where the animal is.
