Adoption/Foster 

Adoption is such a beautiful process which is beneficial to the animal as well as the human. You will be saving a life and giving promise of a better one. Adopted pets are typically incredibly thankful for the second chance they are given. You would be supporting your community by giving one of the homeless a home.

Process of adopting and Fostering

The process of adopting from Saga Humane Society consists of interviews and confirmation that the animal will have the proper care that it would require. The Humane Society requires a fee for adopting which has been previously listed. This fee goes toward feeding and giving shelter for others that have not been so lucky as to be adopted yet.

 Fostering is an option that would pertain to giving the animal shelter and taking the role and responsibility of caring for them without the permanent responsibility. The process of being an eligible foster parent would be similar to that of an adoptive parent. Saga Humane Society would like to ensure that the animal would be given the best care in the best circumstances. There is no financial obligation to fostering as the food would be supplied and if medication would be required it would be supplied as well as tutorials on the appropriate way to administer the medication.

How do I bring my pet home?

Once going through the process of adopting if the new family member home is the next important step. Ensuring that you are taking the correct steps to make sure your new family member comes with you to their new home is very important. All of the airlines would require a valid and hard copy of a vaccine certificate and health certificate. It is important to call ahead to make sure that the airline will allow animals on board or in cargo and to ask how old they would require them to be. Some airlines will not take animals some have specific requirements that need to be met before leaving Belize.

Help Support a Shelter Animal

Saga Humane Society shelters an average of 60 animals a month.  The first month an animal enters the shelter, he/she is given a complete check-up, tested for common medical conditions that are easily passed within feral animal communities, given all vaccines and is spayed or neutered before ever leaving the shelter to a ‘forever home’.  Continuing monthly costs included food & keep for the animals, monthly heartworm & flea/tick treatments and regular Vet check-ups.

The first month cost to shelter an adult dog is an average of $100 USD.  A puppy cost $75 USD to $85 USD depending if it is a male or female.

To shelter a cat for the first month, it cost Saga from $35 USD to $50 USD depending on age, size and sex of the cat.

Monthly cost thereafter to shelter an animal until it finds a ‘forever home’ are $60 USD for a puppy, $42 USD for an adult dog and $20 USD to $35 USD for a cat.

Please help Saga in its mission to continue to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to the animals on the island of Ambergris Caye by making a donation below.  Your donation goes directly to the care of a shelter animal.
