Save Your SAGA Humane Society - SAGA may be forced to close
For 10 years the SAGA Humane Society has provided valuable services to the Town of San Pedro: This is what SAGA does for you and the animals of San Pedro: * Dog Patrols to pickup stray, dangerous, diseased, maltreated, abandoned or injured animals * Response to complaints of dog attacks, dog fights, noise nuisance and other negative interactions between the animal population and humans * Provide free rabies shots for all animals * Provide free or low cost medical treatment for animals belonging to those suffering financial hardship * Provide a shelter to house, feed and treat the homeless or mistreated animals of San Pedro * Provide animal adoption services, providing many local families with much loved pets and guard dogs * Assure that all people who want to adopt are able to provide good care for the animal * Assure all animals placed for adoption are spayed or neutered and have been given a clean bill of health with all shots up to date * Provide free or low cost spays & neuters to help prevent overpopulation * Provide humane euthanasia when appropriate and eliminate the need for the Town Board to use poison as an alternative * Provide educational programs to help the people of San Pedro learn how to care for a healthy, happy pet Over 75% of the money needed to do this comes from the veterinary clinic SAGA runs, which provides both free and for-charge care. It is this income that pays for all of the other services. NOW, the SAGA veterinary clinic may be forced to close, putting the entire Humane Society at risk and out of business. If SAGA cannot employ a full-time vet, we cannot generate the income to offer all the many free and low-cost services we currently provide. How can you help? The Humane Society needs your voice to join the numbers who believe that without a Humane Society both the animals and the people of San Pedro will suffer. Please – Add your name to let the Belize Veterinary Licensing Board know that you believe that the SAGA Humane Society should be able to continue operating a veterinary clinic for the benefit of all of San Pedro.
