Montego Bay Animal Haven was founded in 2009 when a group of friends and professionals joined forces to act collectively rather than as individuals to raise awareness of the plight of animals in Jamaica. As the only rescue centre covering the north west of Jamaica, the Haven's primary aim is to help animals who are abandoned and starving; ensure they are medically fit, spayed or neutered and then re-homed to responsible, loving new owners.
As we develop we hope to offer subsidised if not full funding for those who cannot afford to spay and neuter their animals.We have been involved in a number of clinics in Montego Bay and Negril where hundreds of street animals have been spayed and neutered in the on-going battle to reduce to stray
And finally we intend to educate; we are already spreading the message through the next generation by going into schools with some of our animals to teach youngsters the value and responsibility of animal ownership.
At present the rescue centre, which has re-homed some countless dogs, cats, horses and even goats, is operating from a private home; a situation which is far from ideal. In time we hope to generate enough support financially and otherwise to secure a more suitable site for the Montego Bay Animal Haven. One step at a time....
