    Story

    STORY

    Negril, Jamaica is one of the top three major tourist attractions on the island. More popularly known for its seven miles of white sandy beaches, Negril is popular on the list of places to visit for tourists worldwide, being the home to the famous Rick’s Café and Blue Lagoon. However, what Negril is not known for is its loving treatment of stray dogs. Negril has one of the largest stray dog populations across the fourteen parishes on the island. To date, Negril has no veterinary clinic for animals to call its own. The nearest veterinary clinic is more than 31 minutes away by car and after that, more than an hour away. The lack of these pet care facilities is alarming and the greater impact comes with the fact that the deficiency experienced is not only felt by dogs but by other animals as well.

    GOALS
    Through our program, we intend to build a stable to home two rescue horses and treat injured animals and those with poor health issues. Servicing the Negril community and the greater West end of the island is only one dog rescue that does an amazing job.

    Adding to this deficit is the absence of any recovery equipment. For example, there isn't a single hydrotherapy pool to be found within the entire parish of Westmoreland. Hydrotherapy is integral to the good health and overall recuperation of sick animals. It helps to rebuild muscle mass, and increase balance, coordination, and blood circulation. Dogs can benefit from pain relief, improved stamina, curbing weight loss plus post-surgery recovery; not to mention the reduction of inflammation with just a few sessions of hydrotherapy. On the whole, the community of true dog lovers is a small one on the island. Regrettably, dogs are viewed as pets for leisure or security personnel, and not God-created individuals worthy of nurturing and love.
    Please join our Safe Paws family. We also need trustees to help drive our cause forward.

      Hello supporters! We currently have an application submitted to the government office which our lawyer says could take up to 8 months for the consent. Whilst we wait for this, we are planning our next trip in November to start the boundary wall around the land, drawing plans for and with a local architect and maintaining the land from becoming bushed up again. We are also filling barrels with animal equipment ready for shipping around September. It never stops but that's what we love.

      So, we got back from Negril on Christmas day. We managed to do what we went there to do, which was clean the land and fence it up. All that needs adding is a gate which we have someone sourcing some wood for this. Please follow us on Instagram and Tik Tok to see all our videos. So now we are back, we need to raise enough money to start the foundations. We are in the process of looking for an architect. Someone who can do a modern design and not a traditional Jamaican one (Oops, sorry guys!)

    With your help, we can build and facilitate a veterinary clinic in Negril. I would like to encourage each one of you to support this amazing cause so that animals found injured and sick in Negril, can be treated instead of left to die. Dogs are often hit by cars and left. TY
