Treasures from the Cayman Islands

Glimmering water, sugar-white sand, unspoiled beaches, palm trees and a calm, peaceful vibe – The Cayman Islands.  Sounds great!  What is perceived as a paradise for travellers is not paradise for dogs and cats.   They roam the streets, often without a home to call their own.   The Cayman Islands Humane Society is trying to educate the local community about responsible guardianship .  It is a constant struggle to persuade people to spay and neuter their pets, vaccinate regularly, give heartworm preventative -- let alone treat them when they need medical intervention.  There are laws to prevent abuse, but they are not enforced; to date no one has been convicted of animal abuse but it is a daily occurrence.  The C.I. Humane Society is their only voice. 

Some may question, "Why worry about these dogs when there are so many in Quebec who are abandoned and homeless"?  Animatch feels that all dogs deserve to be content, healthy and cherished.  It is of no importance in what country they happened to be born, what matters is that without this chance, their future may be bleak.  No animal deserves that.... not if people can offer help. 

Animatch is happy to welcome our four Cayman girls – Belle, Arya, Kita, and Soleil.  With a bit of luck, they will soon be on their way to a home where they will certainly bring their own special brand of love and loyalty to their new families.
