|Trinidad&Tobago Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals - Tobago Branch
Member of RSPCA and WSPA
The Tobago Branch of the T&TSPCA
was founded in late 1968. It is a privately
run, non-profit making organisation
whose main aim is exactly what the name
says - to prevent cruelty to animals.
It attempts to locate owners of lost
animals, attempts to rehome stray, rescued
and unwanted animals, and endeavors
to educate the public on caring for
Tobago is a small island located in
the Caribbean Sea, with a population
of approximately 45,000 permanent residents.
The Tobago Society has a membership
of 130+, of which 50 are non residents.
It is due primarily to legacies, grants,
donations, and fund raising activities,
that the Society exists. In the case
of specific projects, some assistance
is received from the Royal Society in
England and WSPA. Except for the routine
daily care and maintenance provided
by a permanent staff of three, everything
is done by volunteers. All money received
is used 100% for the care of the animals
and maintenance of the facility.
We have a UK vet coming to Tobago for
2 weeks at the beginning of September
2004 to commence a neutering programme
to help reduce the number of stray dogs
and cats in Tobago.
The work is being done voluntarily and
we are fund raising for the necessary
equipment and medical supplies which
we will need for the animals.
