About Cayman Islands Humane Society
The Cayman Islands Humane Society is open 365 days per year, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 11am-5pm, Wednesday 11am-1pm, Saturday 8am-4pm and on Sundays from 8am-12pm for dog walking. They are open from 7am but are busy tending to the dogs and cats so it is best to go from 11am. The shelter has an average of 60+ dogs and 25+ cats/kittens at any given time.
They have a large variety of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that need loving homes. They are also happy for you to foster a dog or cat, whether for a sleepover or a long weekend where they will lend you a pet carrier, utensils, blankets, food, toys and treats. The shelter is always in desperate need of foster parents, either to care for sick or injured animals, puppies with ringworm, dogs that are suffering from kennel stress or cats/kittens that need some extra care or just a break from shelter life.
The Humane Society spay and neuter all pets that arrive at the shelter and even offer financial support for spay and neuter services to anyone who cannot afford to have their pet fixed, even if the animal has not come from the shelter.
The shelter is always open to volunteers who can either walk the dogs in the vicinity of the shelter or take them to the beach for a fun outing. The dogs only regularly get walked on weekends and dog walkers are welcome any day, every day, including public holidays! Dog walking is a great activity for children and the shelter staff will recommend the right animal for the age and size of your child, so everybody enjoys the walk.
To help raise funds for the Society, which is a not-for-profit organisation, you may volunteer to work in the Book Loft. The shelter also needs airline passengers to help transfer animals to overseas shelters in New York and Toronto and would like to encourage tourists to help by chaperoning our animals on their flight.
The Shelter has recently received a land donation from Dart and funding so are planning to build a new shelter, hopefully with a higher capacity, and a safer area for volunteers.
During holidays, they are open from 9am-12pm.
They also have an emergency 24-hour contact at +1 345 326 1461 to help dogs or cats in dire situations.
