“No animal should ever suffer so if you see something, say something. Report animal abuse to the Department of Agriculture.”
The Cayman Islands Humane Society
(CMR) The Cayman Islands Humane Society has continued to highlight the deplorable condition of animals in the Cayman Islands and social media viewers are in utter shock and outrage at the manner in which dogs in particular are treated in the Cayman Islands.
They shared a farewell post of an emaciated dog rescued from East End named Dessie. She died after being found in an unbelievable state of malnutrition and receiving treatment including a blood transfusion from the vets.
Despite their best efforts, they were unable to save her. The society's post shared that “Dessie was the victim of animal cruelty, she was basically started to death.” The Humane Society believes that the emaciated dog may have been dumped “after having been kept in horrible conditions.”. They expressed gratitude to Dr. Andrew and vet staff Kim and Khalid as well as shelter staff Jason, Letty and Barrie and other volunteers who tried to comfort the poor dog.
Donations towards her medical expenses or the shelter can be made o www.caymangiftcertificates.com
Several people reached out to CMR asking for exposure of what they say is ineffective administration and handling of such cases at the Department of Agriculture and the police.
One concerned person shared that they do not think that DOA is doing enough to protect animals. The police and DOA only have two full time animal welfare officers who many say are often overworked and unable to enforce what few laws exist.
