Hi!  My name is Ruby!  I’m only 5 weeks old, and I was brought to Saga by my owner who thought you might be able to give me a better life than she could.  I’m being well taken care of by Saga’s super volunteer Harmony but anxious for you to come and adopt me.

Please come see me and all my friends at the Saga Humane Society today!

The San Pedro Saga Humane Society would like to offer our sincere thanks to all the people and businesses that helped make February 2013 a great start to Operation SNIP (Spay/Neuter Initiative Program). To celebrate Saga HS completed 60 free spay/neuters the week of World Spay Day, February 26, 2013.  World Spay Day is an annual campaign of Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter—a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street. Operation SNIP is Saga HS ongoing plan to sterilize 75% of the islands’ animal population in the next 3-5 years.

This was a great partnership between local businesses and visiting animal welfare professionals from the USA. Dr. Don Tummons of Duck Hollow Animal Hospital in Uniontown, PA, Mary Maykuth, Heather Beck of K9 Lifeline in Draper, UT are superstars for coming to assist Saga HS with this event! Thanks also Ken and Joanne Hibbard of Durango, CO  for visiting local schools to talk about the importance of being a responsible pet owner and helping with our new education program for kids and to Matt Beatty for the donation of Hip to Snip stickers and Saga banners. Our deepest thanks to these dedicated professionals for using their knowledge, money, vacation time and skill to help the animals and their owners on Ambergris Caye.

Local business owners also see the importance of reducing the population of homeless animals. Prior to World Spay Day, Ramon Nunez of Ramon’s Village, through donations was able to raise $1400BZ and start the event’s fund raising efforts. Thank you for your continued support. The entire month of February Heather and Kevin Smith from Felize Bar & Grill held a weekly BINGO game to benefit Operation SNIP.  Through their efforts $1224BZ was raised. Thank you for your and other’s hard work, Saga HS was able to cover the costs of 60 spay/neuters for World Spay Day.

Thanks also to the folks at Bella Vista Susan, Victoria, Hugo, Manner, Yami, Matt and Suki the cat who helped make Dr. Don and Mary’s stay at Bella Vista memorable and also for their generous discount for the accommodations for these visiting Saga supporters.

Wednesday February 27 was Cook Off- Desserts at Average Joe’s Belize. It was a great turnout of residents and visitors alike.  There were 14 entries in all from some of the islands best restaurants and home chefs.  Casa Pan Dulce won with their outstanding Apple Pie with Ice Cream. Saga HS was able to raise $1993BZ from ticket sales, raffles, donations, plus another $2000BZ generous matching gift by Ms. Beck. With these funds another 60 animals can be spayed/neutered in Operation SNIP. Thank you for your support by attending this event.

The list of businesses, supporters and entries for the Cook Off are; Black Orchid, Lonsestar Grill & Cantina, LouAnn LeClair, Tara Traynor, Kakaw Chocolate, Carolina Gonzalez, Benjamin Vasques (Ellos), Elizabeth Burthley, AJ’s, Sand Bar, Amy Knox of Wild Mangos, Feliz Bar, Casa Pan Dulce. Thanks to Brian Cook of Fido’s for sponsoring a dish. Thanks to those who donated some pretty great prizes for our raffle. Ultimate Golf Cart Rentals, DJ’s Seaside Restaurant/Cross Fit Gym (opening end of March), Melt Café, and Black Orchid Restaurant.  Thank you to everyone who donated prizes, desserts or volunteered their time to helped make this night a success.

Saga HS will continue to focus on Operation SNIP through fundraising and offering free/low cost spay/neuter to the residents of Ambergris Caye.  The goal is to have another Operation SNIP clinic in the month of May and two others in 2013.  If you can help with lodgings for volunteer Veterinarian staff, meals or trips for these dedicated caring professions, please let us know how you can help with Operation SNIP.

It’s Hip to SNIP!

Mandy adopted Marcus from Saga in March of 2012, and he now lives in Canada with her and her family.  In Mandy’s own words:

“Marcus came to us at a time when I was resistant to letting another pet into my heart as I was still grieving the loss of our beloved Dogue de Bordeaux 2 yrs after she passed!  When our property manager in San Pedro advised me to get a ‘yard’ dog for added security, the kids convinced me that it was time to move on so we visited the dogs over at [Fort Dog]….we walked a few different dogs and although Fiona stole our hearts, she wasn’t suitable for protection as well as companionship so we went with Marcus who quickly found his own place in our hearts, our life and our family bed!  He has proven to be a very loyal, loving and protective companion for all of us and as you know, our family would not be complete without him.

I would like to express sincere gratitude to Saga and the volunteers who give up their own time to help connect these lovable little guys with forever homes!

(Marcus starts obedience training today; I will send you a pic when he graduates!)

Merry Christmas Marcus!

Hi!  My name is Chica.  I’m one year old and was rescued from the DFC area with my 5 kittens who are all now adopted.  As you can see I am getting plenty of attention from Kylie, Rochelle and Dulce here at Saga but I would love a full time home with you!  Please come see me and all my friends at the Saga Humane Society today!

Two years ago, “Peppito” arrived from SAGA to us in the city, and our lives were never the same again. My twins learnt the true meaning of love and caring for a pet, and he is such a smart, special, beautiful little dog. Rescue Dogs are the best… they are loyal and possess an intelligence that’s just amazing. Adopt an animal from a shelter… you’ll never regret it!
