Although we are "Island Dog," we love cats! AND we can't ignore the thousands of homeless cats we encounter. While we would love to rescue many of the cats we meet, there is still a serious cat overpopulation problem in the United States. Therefore, we have created a trap & release program. Each cat is sterilized, vaccinated, given medications, and fed.
Island Dog created the Red Collar Project in 2008 because of the 200,000 + homeless dogs in Puerto Rico. This project provides spay & neuter for dogs that are cared for but not own owned. Many of these dogs have been living on the streets since they were born and are not adoptable. They are happy on the streets. All dogs vaccinated, tagged, and spayed/neutered and monitored by volunteers.
Over 50% of the population in Puerto Rico lives below the poverty line. Because many families have a difficult time feeding themselves, Island Dog created a highly successful discount spay and neuter program. For the low cost of $55.00, residents of Puerto Rico and Culebra receive sterilization surgery, vaccines, and a health exam. For many locals this is their first introduction to a vet.
Island Dog is focused on helping animals in Puerto Rico by concentrating on the BIG picture. Our spay & neuter programs are the key to ending animal overpopulation and reducing unwanted births. Because PREVENTION is always better than a cure.
As part of our historical mission, we have created several key programs.
