Southern Grenadines

ANIMAL Kindness

Our Goals 

Although our mission is to spay and neuter animals on Union Island, our SGAK facility has evolved significantly over the past decade into a shelter, rescue and re-homing operation.  As a shelter/rescue centre, we provide food, vaccinations, de-worming, skin disease treatments, tick and flea treatments and treat wounds, and broken bones. The abandoned puppies are all treated and neutered before being re-homed.

We actively seek safe environments in which to place the homeless.

Please help us help them.  

If you can provide a loving home for a cat or dog, please contact Animal Kindness for further information on animals that are available.

It is possible for people from other countries, particularly Canada and the US, to adopt dogs from our shelter.  St. Vincent & the Grenadines is a non-rabies country, so this makes it easier for animals to enter other countries.  There are paperwork and procedures to follow, but we would be happy to advise and assist anyone who would like to offer one of our dogs a good home.

Community Outreach



And this is Garfield!  He is our SGAK resident cat (aka the Boss!).

Tabiah is the most recent addition to our team.  Tabiah grew up on Union Island and attended University in Jamaica and Trinidad.  Since returning home, Tabi volunteers at local schools.  She has been hired by SGAK as our Community Outreach representative.  On a borrowed scooter, she makes rounds once a week to villages and back country on Union Island - areas not connected to our shelter.  There are many stories of neglect and cruelty, the most common being tick fever, mange, heart worm, starvation, abandonment and cancer.  Tabi assesses the animals and tries to educate the owners about animal care.  She administers basic medications and follows up on their progress.  She also works with street animals.


She lives full time at our shelter, feeding, medicating, and treating our animal patients.  As full time staff, Susie organizes and participates in our clinics, orders medical supplies and communicates with the local residents on Unionregarding animal care.

Many times animals such as puppies and kittens, injured and abandoned, are dropped off or just left at our shelter.  They are cared for and re-homed, where possible, under SGAK guidelines and conditions.

Susie provides a valuable full time presence and continuity for SGAK's goals.
