We are dealing with an infinite problem with finite resources.

The Vieques Humane Society and Animal Rescue is an operational non-profit 501c3 organization founded in 1987.  For the past 26 years we have been the ONLY source of help for dogs, cats, and horses.  Vieques Island, Puerto Rico has a severe animal overpopulation problem and thousands of dogs, cats, and horses roam the streets and jungles.  We see extraordinary abuse and neglect and we also see amazing animals capable of surviving and thriving.

so many puppies

We need help!  The shelter is 26 years old and has NEVER been improved or updated.  Vieques is also prone to hurricanes.  We are completely unprepared for any natural disaster.  We need help!  We are at capacity with 100 dogs in our facility and another 50 dogs being fostered in homes of island residents.  This means we are forced to euthanize animals.  We are running out of money, food, and all resources are stretched to the breaking point.  We are vicitms of our own success and the number of surrenders have tripled in the past 6 months. 

The dog appreciate everything. 

Our equipment is old and failing.  For example, our chest freezer is failing and it is a challenge to keep deceased animals cold until burial!  A new anaesthesia machine would improve the efficiency of spay and neuter surgeries perfomed in our clinic.  Our kennels are falling apart and many of our dogs do not have aquequate shelter from the sun and rain during the day (they have safe shelter at night). 

Vieques Humane Society

We are doing our best and it is just not enough. We need your help. Please donate anything.  Even $1.00 will buy a can of dog food.  Donations are tax deductible. These animals deserve better. Despite their amazing journeys they are sweet, kind, and so grateful for the care they receive.  We have many animals in need of adoption!  No one in our care is suffering but we know we can do better! Please help SAVE THE VIEQUES HUMANE SOCIETY!  and please spay and neuter your animals!
