Castries, Saint Lucia: Helpaws asked the public to adopt 12 new pups in less than 24 hours. Helpaws (Help Animal Welfare in St Lucia) is an organization that addresses the unnecessary suffering of animals in Saint Lucia through rescue work and regular FREE Spay and Neuter clinics.
Another day, another intake. That makes 12 pups in less than 24 hours!
These 7 babies were born to a stray mama on the island. They had someone caring for them, but she already has 5 dogs and can’t handle 7 more.
We keep saying we can’t take any more babies in, but HOW can we turn them away, knowing they’d never survive on their own?
It’s a no win situation because we can’t just let them suffer on their own, but we truly don’t have the space or resources to continue to operate this way, with more and more coming in and so few going out.
These littles were SO hungry when they came in, as well as being covered with fleas and ticks. It’s the same story, day in and day out.
THIS is exactly why the upcoming spay and neuter clinic is so critical. It gives everyone the opportunity to sterilize their animals and help stop this cycle. Responsible pet ownership and spaying/neutering is the ONLY way we will ever get ahead of this cycle.
We are still in need of 1 vet and 1 trained vet tech to assist with the clinic starting on 10/15. If you or someone you know works in the veterinary field and are willing to volunteer for the clinic, please DM or email email@example.com.
