  1. Hello, I’m sure you get asked this a lot but I’m currently in the Bahamas and I was saddened to see how thin and dejected the Surrey horses look in nassau. It was baking hot yesterday and they really all looked to be struggling to pull the carts. I couldn’t see any water or food for them in the stands and they were all thin. Do they get monitored ? Are there any plans to reform the service ? Where do the horses live ? If there’s any way I can donate to help please let me know ! I know you do a fab job here πŸ™‚ thanks livvy

  2. Hi,
    We do indeed hear these concerns often!
    The horses go for a monthly inspection with the Ministry of Agriculture,
    Ministry of Tourism, a vet from the Min of Ag, and at least one
    representative from the BHS. It’s not ideal but it does nip some
    problems in the bud and get things treated that need to be.
    The government has been talking about a national stable for the horses
    as right now they go home to stalls, often concrete and not well kept,
    at the end of a day. I’m not sure how far those plans have progressed.
    I’m not sure how best to donate to assist them directly, unless you’d
    like to donate to the BHS so we are able to stay open and keep sending
    someone to the inspections!
    Thanks for caring about our animals!

  3. Thankyou for your help ! I shall def donate and hope that the situation gets sorted for these animals soon πŸ™ x

  4. Don’t hurt the dogs. They aren’t alone, scared, and not sure of how they’ll get their next meal because they want it that way. Use pepper spray until you get someone to pick them up.

  5. Hi we are in the MeliΓ‘ hotel and there are a lot Of kitties here. Im afraid that theta could bother some guests and the autorities Of the hotel could do something bad to them.

  6. A stray dog followed me home. We don’t live on the island. He is so loyal and kind. It would be the best dog. Does anyone need a dog. He is a potcake but he looks like Australian Shepored mix. Let me know soon

  9. Hi, Brandon, I am passing this on to one of our inspectors. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
    If no one comes by the end of the week, please call 323-1538 and speak to Inspector Percy Grant.

  10. I just built a home in Exuma and would like to know how I can bring my dog from Atlanta to the island when I come. What are the procedures?

  11. Contact the Ministry of Agriculture for an import permit. You will need a health certificate from your local vet dated 48 hours before your flight, and you will need then to see a vet upon arrival here. there are no extra papers required for inter-island transport.

  12. I’m leaving for holiday off-island for a week or so and needs to have my pets cared for whilst I’m gone. My friend suggested BHS – could you please let me know the cost and procedure to check my pets? I’m coming back for them (not for adoption!).

  13. Hi, Stephanie, Sorry for the delayed reply. The BHS only does cat boarding. You would need to check with Pet Heaven or one of the vets’ offices for dog boarding.

  14. Hello! We are just here on vacation and saw a really skinny dog behind Franky Gone Banana near W Bay St. We bought him some food, but we think he was too afraid to eat in front of us. We hope he ate it after we left. Anyway, we are wondering if there is any organisation that can help. I would be happy to offer a donation of course, we just want to make sure this poor animal is being assisted. Thanks!

  15. Hi, Etienne, Thanks for caring about our animals! I can ask the ambulance driver to keep an eye out, though we mainly deal with the sick and injured. Donations can be made through the orange button at the top of the page, or by coming in to the shelter if you are still on the island!
