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. This is even more evident in the lack of Jamaican constitutional laws in place for the protection of animals and/or the severe prosecution of those found to be in violation of those that are in effect. In an urgent effort to turn around the lives of these strays, BRAS has identified a viable parcel of land suitable to erect Negril’s very own Veterinary care center. We would invite vets from all over the world to offer their life-changing work while inviting volunteers to lend their experience towards the recovery, rehabilitation, and rehoming of these precious animals. To do this we need to raise a minimum of £50,000 so that we can start to turn this dream into a reality. Thereafter through continual fundraising efforts, the purchase of equipment and medication would be accomplished. This is a mammoth task but we have been fundraising as much as we possibly can via our walk-in and online shop www.labelstore.org.uk. 100% of the profits go to our cause so if you are unable to donate, please browse our store.

    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!)

    November 2022. The guys back home have managed to chop down all the overgrowth. Please see the video before so that you can see the difference. It has been quite rainy so now they have to wait for the bushes to dry out so they can have a fire and burn it all. Then they have about 10 trees to cut down (not food-bearing trees) I want them to cut some of the trunks into different-sized logs so that I can use them for various features on the land. I want to tell you so much more but the word limit is restricting us. 1 image limit also 😫
