Our association was founded in August 2005 with seat in Eichendorf, Germany. We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Our purpose is to help stray cats and dogs and animals of poor people in the Caribbean.
Organizing and carrying out spay and neuter operatives for strays and animals of poor owners.
Informing tourists about the mass poisonings taking place regularly because it is believed that strays might disturb the tourists.
Offering tourists means of protest and animal-friendly alternatives as holiday destinations.
Utilizing the possibilities of tourism as an economic force to impress upon authorities and tourist industry the fact that most tourists wish humane treatment of animals.
Offering hotels and touristic enterprises spay and neuter campaigns as humane and effective means to control stray animal populations and further care and monitoring of the animals at feeding stations including medical care.
School programs to teach children and adolescents empathy and kindness towards animals.
Recreational activities (for example dog schools) with animals for children, adolescents and also adults to teach the right treatment and care of animals.
Integration of local people into animal welfare activities in their communities such as fostering animals and maintaining feeding stations and antiparasitical programs.
Role models for the individual parts of the concept have to be established first before the final goal, to realize all programs in one place so they all interact with one another and achieve combined the maximum impact and efficiency. This location can then also serve as training opportunity for other islands.

All internationally working animal welfare organizations observe a constant increase of stray animal populations worldwide despite extremely bad living conditions, never-ending persecution, mass killings, poisonings and a tremendously high mortality rate among the puppies.
A stray bitch lives on the average up to six years, given that she escapes capture, poisonings and car accidents. By then parasites and a diet of garbage and water from polluted puddles have damaged her health so severely that she dies (According to official statistics the average life span of a street dog lies between 1 – 3 years).
At the age of eight months a bitch will get pregnant for the first time and give birth from then on twice a year until she dies - at least ten times – to litters of 5 puppies on the average.
If only half of the puppies are female, she can have 25 daughters, 625 granddaughters, 15.625 great-granddaughters and 390.625 great-great-granddaughters, not counting her male descendants.
Due to the high mortality rate among puppies the population doesn't increase quite as rapidly. Suffering from malnutrition, the bitch usually has no more milk after latest six weeks. At that age the puppies can't survive on a diet of litter and polluted water. They die of thirst, starvation, parasites, worms and viral infections.
When they leave their hiding places at this age and are discovered they are strangled, drowned, beaten to death or simply abandoned at lonely places to die of thirst.
In the vicinity of holiday resorts strays are in constant danger of getting poisoned when they rummage through the garbage in search of food.
The poison is placed by hotel managements and communities, especially before and after the peak season.
They worry that tourists may feel disturbed by the strays.
Please help us to prevent these unwanted births. Every donation contributes to a spay or neuter and helps to prevent countless misery.
But that alone isn’t enough! The success of spay and neuter depends on the life expectancy of the spayed and neutered animals. If they continue to die as young as they do up to now, their territory is immediately taken over by other, fertile animals. If they had owners who let them stray without caring; the usual practice in the Caribbean, they will be replaced by new, fertile pets that will be kept in the same way as the old ones. The life expectancy depends on the quality of life which again depends on the attitude of the people in the environment of the animals. Poverty and lack of education are the reasons for lacking empathy towards animals among local people; in the tourist industry it is greed and the fear stray animals could be bad for business. Only if we succeed to improve the attitude of people towards the animals will spay neuter have a lasting, sustainable effect. Therefore please support also our projects in the field of Animal welfare with the Caribbean people and Tourism and Animal welfare!
