  1. Hi I am moving to Nassau in mid July and would love to volunteer with the animals, can you please let me know if this would be possible and also, if I would require any shots.

    Regards Sandy

  2. I was just in the Bahamas last week. I was upset to see the horses that are forced to pull the buggies full of fat tourist. They were underfed, whipped to go/pull faster and had little protection-an old pillow on their backs with heavy harnesses on top of them, it was sad. Is there an organization on the island who specialized in equestrian abuse? please email me and let me know.thank you

  3. Hi Cathy

    Those horse are inspected the first Thursday of every month by the Hackney Cab Board which comprises of a Veterinarian, Humane Inspector, Police Officer, Road Traffic Officer and Ministry of Tourism Officer. We have a
    challenge with two of the owners and we are trying now to establish a central stabling system to ensure all the
    horse receive proper care when they are not working. Some of the horses with borderline weight only are allowed
    to work two days out of the week, this helps the owner to be able to continue feeding them, if you remove them from
    working then they owners will not feed them and by the time you taken legal action and go through the courts to
    remove them from the owners they are already dead. Until we create our central stables we have to continue monitoring
    them daily, having them work a day if possible and subsides food in some cases. It would be nice if those fat tourist or any tourist for that matter would not ride them then this business could be remove from the streets of Nassau, we feel the streets of Nassau has out grown this type of tourist attraction. Please feel free to write your concerns to the Ministry
    of Tourism P. O. Box N-3701 Nassau Bahamas.

  4. This is my first time i go post. I collected so many interesting things in your site especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your posts, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! keep up the good work.Regards By academic

  5. Hello there I am so thrilled I found your weblog, I really found you by error, while I was researching
    on Google for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just
    like to say thanks a lot for a incredible post and a all
    round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to look over it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the great job.

  6. My first time ever posting in any type of blog, but seeing that it is a blog about something that i am sooo passionate about im excited about it. I have volunteered with the humane society off and on since i graduated in 2007. I love being there and hate when its time to leave. Its a place to go and feel relaxed and a sense of home. The animals (especially the pups) love when they get visitors. Whether i was cleaning cages or giving baths it was truly a wonderful experience. It sorrows my heart to know that they have to be in those cages when they all just want love and someone they could give their love to. I have adopted 2 dogs from the humane society and they were a bit rough looking when i got them but just like diamonds when you clean them up they were gorgeous dogs. I have 4 dogs now and they get a long quite well. A potcake(most loving), husky(loves looking in the mirror), shitzhu(supervisor of the couch) and Pomeranian(boss lady of them all). I plan to adopt soon again.(Wish i could take them all) The humane society staff is doing all they can do with the resources they have and i have never once witness them turn away an animal in need and i appreciate it as a fellow animal lover. So please donate or volunteer to help them continue their wonderful service to the animals of the 242.

  7. Thank you, Via, for your words of support, and for adopting! Your dogs sound as though they’re having a great life! Keep up your good work, too!

  8. Hi Goodday, My family have been customers and patrons of BHS for nearly twenty years. This is my first comment on your message boards but I felt the need to mention my hesitancy in promoting your photo contest. Is it just me or does $10 a photo entry seem like too much for either adult or child in the current economic climate The Bahamas is experiencing currently. I understand that many of the funds go directly back into BHS to help aid in animal sheltering, care and rescue, but I do feel as if the prices presented will lessen the amount of competitors willing to participate. The cost for someone wanting to participate in every category of the competition is nearly 80$, a price too steep for many at the moment. Perhaps a discount for members of BHS or even a reduction in the entry cost all together, or even a discount for student who present school identification. Just a suggestion, all the best in the BHS’s endeavours.

  9. Hi Steve

    thank you for your comment. We absolutely feel it is worth the $10 entry fee. We offer really awesome prizes – most are over the $100 value mark, so along with helping the animals you are getting a chance to win some really cool items.

    It really is a more creative way to donate, if we wrote an asking letter some people would donate maybe $25, $50, or $100. so I think people feel the photo contest is a fun interactive way to donate and support our hard work and all we do for the animals, they pay to get some of their favourite photos mounted, which you get back so you can put it in a frame or display it on your wall at home, enter in a chance to win some awesome prizes, and have a fun FREE social awards night.

    We typically get an amazing response with lots of entries and never had any complaints before.

    It really comes down to goodwill and support for all our work rescuing and helping animals.

    Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will enter a few photos, Laura Kimble

  10. I thank everyone who works at this Humane Society for all their compassion. This is heartbreaking yet rewarding work. I have been reading through this blog and I have a question. Occasionally someone writes about a sick animal they have seen and they ask for someone to check it out. I never see a response and I am wondering if BHS does look into these comments. I am hoping they do but they just don’t write it all on the blog. Would love to hear! Thank you so much.

  11. Thank you, Kirsten!
    We do try to check on every animal that is posted, but you’re right, we often don’t manage to follow up and let people know we have done so! Thanks for helping us know that people are in fact reading what’s posted.
    All the best,
    Linda

  12. My wife and I will be coming to the Bahamas in May. We always come in May and stay for two weeks and always visit the BHS. Is there anything that we can bring to the shelter such as supplies?

  13. , we can work with you and the vets and adoption staff to see what’s most needed and best transported. Thank you! ~ Lindabhslinda@gmail.com, we can work with you and the vets and adoption staff to see what’s most needed and best transported. Thank you! ~ Linda
