Have a heart and soul for the animals this holiday season

Earlier this year, the Humane Society of Grand Bahama launched a campaign to recruit sponsors for our shelter pets. We already had a core of a faithful few who had been sponsoring pets for some time, but thanks to so many supporters who responded in February, almost 100 of our shelter dogs and cats ended up with monthly sponsors for a time!

We were so grateful for that support and concern for our homeless animals. As the world turns, and understandably, over time, some of our initial sponsors didn't continue. And we didn't really have a good system in place for reminders and the like. So it's ok! We're just grateful for the help we did receive at the time.

With the holidays fast approaching, we are hoping that our wonderful supporters, both past and new, will step up once again for our dogs and cats. Our animals would all like nothing more than safe, loving homes for the holidays but in reality, that is not going to happen for many of them, with our local adoption rate hovering at around 10% of our intake.

Would you consider to sponsor a deserving dog or cat even just for these next two months? Any monetary amount is welcome but we generally say $30 a month, or $1 a day, helps us feed and care for them, and also gives them more time to find loving homes.

Our website now has a great new feature for this. You can choose which pet you'd like to sponsor, and pay via Paypal right then and there. There is also an option with Paypal to make your sponsorship a recurring monthly donation for that animal. Your name and city/state/country will be listed on that animals website posting as their sponsor. An animal can have more than one sponsor!

Or if you prefer to go month to month and bring your money in to the shelter personally (perhaps while visiting your sponsored pet?), that's ok too, and if you would like to sponsor for more than one month, and would also like a friendly gentle email reminder, just ask our front desk staff to note that on your receipt with your email address and we will send you a grateful reminder.

The ever popular No Fleas Flea Market will be held at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama this Saturday, Oct. 24th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We will have a huge variety of household goods & linens, clothes, CDs, books, children’s toys, games, toiletries, etc. and other unusual items to be had at exceptionally low prices.

In addition there will be at least ten "boot sale" vendors that will selling their own items, including arts and crafts vendors - a wonderful way to get a head start on holiday gift shopping!

We can't leave out our precious pets so for this day and time only, we will be offering micro-chipping of your pets for a special low rate of only $40. Micro-chipping is a permanent way of identifying your pets, so that if they ever go missing and end up at a shelter or vet clinic, a simple scan will reveal their microchip number (which also acts as a proof of ownership) and allow them to be reunited with you.

There will also be a bake sale with delectable home-made breads and sweet treats on hand.

Please don't miss this fantastic event and if you have been thinking about adding a new pet to your family, you can also tour the shelter and see the many wonderful dogs and cats waiting for their forever homes.

You can view our website at www.humanesocietygb.org for more photos and stories of many of our adoptable pets. Call us at 352.2477 for more info.

Hurricane relief help needed, animal blessings, guinea pigs galore and an upcoming No Fleas Flea Market and microchip clinic
Submitted by Tip Burrows, Executive Director, HSGB

Our hearts are with everyone in our south central islands who went through the horrific battering last week of Category 4 Hurricane Joaquin. It is gratifying to see our fellow Bahamians and neighbors from across the sea pulling together to help all those affected. The Bahamas Humane Society is assessing the impact on the animal victims and could use some help. Please consider a donation! http://www.bahamashumanesociety.com/donate/

Big thanks to everyone who came out for our Blessing of the Animals held at the Garden of the Groves last Sunday. Father Rudolph Cooper gave a wonderful homily and blessing, as always, and participants enjoyed the tranquil gardens and delicious food and drink at the Garden Cafe. You can see more pictures HERE.

Due to a tragic crime, 1 dog and 38 (yes 38) guinea pigs lost their home overnight last week. The HSGB was asked to assist. Despite our space constraints and financial struggles, we could not forsake these poor animals when they most needed a refuge. The condition of the guinea pigs ranged from poor to fair. Several were determined to be suffering beyond help, and were humanely euthanized. The rest are thriving with good care and nutrition and some are now available for adoption!

We will be asking for a nominal adoption donation of $20, and will require you to have an appropriate cage, feed, water bottle, etc before you can take one of these adorable babies home. Sorry, we do not carry the supplies needed, so you would need to check the local pet supply stores or order online. Thanks to everyone who has donated for their care and feed so far!
