OUR BELIEFS -- Prevention is better than a cure!

​We believe education breeds kindness. 

We believe overpopulation, abuse, and neglect are preventable with spay & neuter & education.

We realistically believe not every animal can or will be saved.

We believe in a safe, happy, and healthy future for the animals in the Caribbean Islands.

About Us

Island Dog is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to building animal-friendly communities in Puerto Rico through our spay and neuter work. We focus on preventing unwanted births and reducing the homeless animal populations

on the island.  While rescue is occasionally part of our work, we focus on the BIG PICTURE of  minimizing animal populations, thus creating healthier and happier communities for both animals & people.

Island Dog is located on the East Coast of Puerto Rico. We work 
to help animals in the surrounding areas. Our spay and neuter program is available on the East Coast, Centrally, and the metro area. We work daily in local communities. 

Island Dog began in 2006 and gained our 501 (c) (3) status in 2007.  Since our inception we have worked to prevent animal suffering in the  U.S. Colony of

Puerto Rico and beyond.
