Last year’s First annual Dog Days event created such a stir in the community that we were able to raise a significant amount of money for the Grand Bahama Humane Society. Just from this donation alone the organization was able to spay and neuter 240 animals and also provide basic vaccines and dewormers, thus helping to ensure a healthier community pet population. We also educated pet owners on humane and responsible pet care.
The Humane Society of Grand Bahama was founded in 1968 to provide safe harbour for the island’s homeless and abused animals. We are the only animal welfare organization on the island, which encompasses 530 square miles and has the Bahamas’ second largest urban area (Freeport).The island’s human population is over 50,000.
We are a private, non-profit charitable organization governed by an active and energetic Board of Directors. We receive no financial support from Government.
The Humane Society of Grand Bahama is committed to alleviating animal over-population and suffering on our island. Thanks to our intensive Spay/Neuter projects, Distemper Vaccination Campaign, “Operation Puppy Lift”, and ongoing education efforts, we are making a visible difference. Though we are not yet able to save every one of the over 1,200 animals we take in annually, in the last three years we have reduced our euthanasia rate by over 25%. We look forward to a day in the near future when the only animals euthanized are those too sick or injured to be treated.
