How To Help
The shelter is happy to see any visitors, whether from overseas or from Trinidad & Tobago. We have a guest book which you are welcome to sign and a donations book where we keep a record of all donations given, be it a bag of dog biscuits or a bottle of doggy shampoo.
The most useful gift is of course money but we are happy to receive almost anything, from old newspapers to brushes and bowls (metal, non-tip kind, please!) to medications such as Frontline.
Volunteers are welcome to come and assist with exercising the dogs. We have 2 large fenced off enclosures and if it hasn’t been raining too much the dogs love to be let out for a run.
We have built a Cattery and Kittery which allows our cats and kittens more space. We again encourage Members and Non Members to volunteer to socialize with our cats and kittens which, with loving care, will become loving pets..

In our recently completed Puppy Run our puppies now get exercise and look forward to volunteers socializing and playing with them.
We need more local support from both members and non members alike to provide better care for the animals especially at week ends when the staff work a half day.
The best help of all is, of course, to give our dogs and cats a home.
Please call in and take time to look around. The noise can be a bit deafening as you walk through as the dogs are so pleased to see you, but persevere and you may find the companion you have been waiting for! We have sent dogs (Tobago Terriers as we like to call them) to Germany, Sweden, Canada, USA and the UK where they live happy contented lives and bring much joy to their owners.
We have adoption drives on a regular basis but some dogs have been with us too long, which is not in the dog’s best interest and we may well have to put some to sleep as demand for space becomes urgent. We do spay and neuter our animals with the assistance of the Vets at our Shelter Clinic and the SPOTT programme.
