The Caribbean is revered for its beautiful islands and friendly people, but they’re also home to thousands of animals in need of help. In the Dominican Republic, the mixed breed dogs that roam the streets and beaches are affectionately known as coconut hounds.
Joanna Edge with Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic — the leading animal rescue with the Caribbean — is helping to enact positive change on the island to help animals in need.
Nominated for a Healthy Pets Game Changer Award by Mark D., Joanna explained that their rescue organization is not only focused on rehabbing animals and spay-and-neuter initiatives but also on community outreach.
When possible, the organization places animals with foster homes until they find a qualified family to adopt them.
In about 85% of cases, the animals end up getting adopted in Canada, due to current red tape with flying them into the U.S.
If you’ll be traveling to the Dominican Republic, you can help by becoming a travel companion for dogs and cats — at no cost to you — to help them reach their forever homes.
