ANIMAL WELFARE & CONTROL
The Antigua & Barbuda Humane Society was registered as an Antiguan charity under the Friendly Societies Act in August 1991 and subsequently incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the Companies Act 1995 in January 2004.
The Humane Society is associated with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (“RSPCA”) and is a Member Society of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (“WSPA”).
The Humane Society is a very active and growing organization that plays an important national role in animal welfare and animal control.
OUR PRIMARY MISSIONS ARE:
- to improve the welfare of animals through humane education and the prevention of cruelty and,
- to offer shelter and humane care to all animals in need of protection in Antigua and Barbuda.
The Humane Society operates a Donkey Sanctuary, currently home to more than 80 donkeys, in addition to an Animal Shelter for dogs and cats with an active adoption programme and low-cost spay/neuter clinics.
Our Donkey Sanctuary and Animal Shelter are located near Bethesda, on the eastern side of the island of Antigua, approximately twenty minutes by car from either St. John’s or English Harbour.
We are open to the public Tuesday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m
