Roger's Story - Sep 24, 2013 - 11:51:45 PM

KIM_DOG.gif
I think I was about nine months old. It is hard to know. I certainly was still a puppy. My life had been very hard, and it just got worse. I was sick, hungry, thirsty, frightened and alone that night. I remember hearing new voices, nobody I had ever heard before. They were talking, talking to the humans I knew, but who did not care for me. My eyes were so swollen from my skin condition that I was blind. I lay in a ball. I was ready to die. In my puppy mind death could not be any worse that the pain and suffering I was experiencing.


These people were about to leave. They sounded nice, I wanted them to see me but I no longer had the strength to move or make myself known to them when suddenly the man saw me. He came over to me, I won’t lie I was frightened, “What was he going to do to me?"

From the streets of Nassau to the Hills of Litchfield County, Connecticut - Aug 23, 2013 - 5:51:35 AM

sm-Dogs.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - The Lillie family (Brian, Sanna, and their daughter Ivy) have waited for their summer vacation in the Bahamas to adopt their new family members after their two beloved Boxers passed away. The family came to the Bahamas Humane Society and spent a long time playing with the puppies before choosing the two lucky pups.

Mr. Lillie, a fine arts and photography teacher, did some Bahamian Folklore research and the little white female will be called "Lusca" and the little golden male "Chickcharney."

"We wanted them to have true Bahamian names," he said.

Island girl makes good! - Apr 20, 2012 - 1:22:38 PM

Sm-Peeta-4.jpg
  Some people help the sun shine, some people help the world turn on it’s axis, some people give us a reason to believe in the future of the world and give us hope for tomorrow…the people who helped Rosie in her epic journey are certainly special people who make the world spin in harmony.

Most certainly, the stars were all aligned for Rosie, in Eleuthera, that day in January, when her ”owner” decided that he no longer wanted this pathetic bag of bones, and he sent her to the spay and neuter clinic with instructions that she be killed…

The Girls Rescued - Feb 2, 2012 - 6:19:34 PM

SM-puppies-007.jpg
All huddled in the corner of a box that served as their squalid little home, these three scrawny, dirty and extremely frightened little dogs cowered as their rescuers attempted to coax them out to safety and the hopes of a new life.

To the three little ragamuffins puppies these rather strange people were probably only going to hurt them like everybody else did. After all one of the favourite occupations of the neighbourhood kids was to throw rocks at them. Did those children not know how much those stones sting when they hit a puppy ?…but, when the puppy cries out, the children laugh !

Yes, there ARE angels! - Jan 26, 2012 - 1:37:01 PM

CLINIC_ANIM.gif
231 spays and neuters in Eleuthera and Exuma

Yes there ARE angels.

I know I just spent five days with a whole load of them.

They were not shimmering in a divine light, nor did they bask in a mysterious glow with wings adorning their backs…

 No Sir! Mostly they were clad in scrubs, bending over operating tables, nursing animals back from anesthesia, prepping cats and dog for surgery, clad in grubby jeans and t-shirts carrying countless cages of dogs and cats down the grass hill to the makeshift clinic.

The Stage is Set : Adopt an Adult Dog - Nov 3, 2011 - 4:38:05 PM

dog-1_sm.jpg
We have 50 animals who are literally begging for a home. Some of them have had such a tough time of life so far that when you approach them the take a step backwards, convinced that you are surely going to yell at them, or hurt them or make an angry gesture. Just imagine how dreadful it must be to fear all humans…how the trust of the natural friend of man must have been abused for these dogs to be afraid of us…we are supposed to be a team, that’s why God created companion animals!

So the stage is set, the decision is taken, you are going to get a (or another) dog.

The first image that comes to mind is that cute, sweet, wiggly, small and totally irresistible puppy…Puppies that come in all shapes...

A Letter From the Surrendered Dog: I Thought We Were a Team Forever - Oct 7, 2011 - 7:27:58 PM

SM-IMG_2223.jpg
Dear Human,

Now let me get this straight…

You wanted me, you bought me, or adopted me (spent quite a lot of money too), you brought me home, and played with me, cuddled with me and laughed with me. In return I would wait for you to get back home every day, at the door, my tail wagging, licking your hand, your face, your feet, to show you how much I cared. I know no other way of expressing my love for you! Sorry I can’t write poems!

Domesticity and Dogs - Sep 30, 2011 - 6:11:34 AM

DOGS.gif
The white nightie hangs on it’s hook in the bathroom rather like the standard flying over Buckingham Palace declaring that the royal landlord is in residence…..The   pure domesticity of this image sends a warm glow through my veins….That white nightie hanging there means quite clearly one thing: Mommy’s home! When I am away, nothing hangs on this hook, no nightgown, no dressing gown, as they are no doubt hanging on the hook behind the door in an anonymous hotel room somewhere around the world.

Sitting on the bath-tub step, his big head resting between his paws is Buddy, a contented sigh, his people are home…

Pinky needs urgent help - Mar 28, 2011 - 6:05:43 PM

pinky.jpg
You are old, you are handicapped, you are frail, you are alone and you are never sure where the next meal is coming from.

 

Your only shelter is under a car in a parking lot, when it rains the water comes under the car…when you were younger and a bit stronger you could cope…but now you are old….and sick.!


How the heck can you cope with all those negatives against you?

 

Yet little Pinky still manages to wag her tail and lick the hand that feeds her...

Twenty Paws: A New Arrival - Mar 9, 2011 - 12:46:43 PM

Kim-DSC00559-SM.jpg
"Little” Boss moved in on Boxing Day, an adorable, small golden, Potcake who at the time could have easily “passed” as a Labrador puppy…Granted he was a tad skinny, and his tail was kind of crazy long, and well his paws were, huh…a little on the wide side!   Maybe a bell should have rung, but it didn’t!

Those cute little baby teeth, sharp as miniature razors, busily chomped into every dog biscuit, bone, toy, a few pair of shoes (foolishly left lying around by yours truly), and anything else he could lay his ever-growing paws on !   Dog food disappeared into his small tummy...

Love and Respect - Nov 1, 2010 - 4:50:15 PM

Kim-Article-PIC.jpg
Love, care, commitment, warmth, friendship, companionship, these are but a few of the emotions and conditions you experience when you own a pet… Never again are you alone, always a friend at your side waiting for you, unconditionally accepting of you, as you are. When you put your key in the door at the end of the day there is a furry face delighted to welcome you home, no worries if your make-up is smudged, your hair a mess or your clothing less than designer label…They want to greet YOU, the real YOU under all those trappings that we have grown to think are essential…They want to be with their friend, mentor, protector, and master!!! (Note:  “master” is now politically incorrect when used in connection with pet-ownership, but, in essence that is a term that is still widely used)...

Bruno: The Gentlest of Giants - Sep 3, 2010 - 7:37:31 AM

Bruno1sm_1.jpg
Take big, take handsome, take brave, …..Mix sweet and loving, and fun and kind… Colour him soft and gentle, and caring and wise…

All of these attributes and more went into the wonderful canine cocktail that was Patricia Vazquez’s beloved Mastiff “Bruno”.

Bruno was a well known figure amongst the animal world of New Providence, 215 pounds of rippling golden muscle, topped off with a large blunt head and a dashing black muzzle…invariably his comical tongue would be lolling out of the side of his enormous mouth as he smiled in a quizzical manner at all those who looked at him in complete awe...

Dear God, a very personal letter... - Aug 26, 2010 - 4:03:38 PM
kimDSCN5432_2sm.jpg
I would like to share something very personal with you. I wrote this letter to God on behalf of my dear friend and pet Abigail Aranha, who had been a part of our family for 14 years. My 17-year-old son could not remember life without her.

She came to us via Brenda Franks from an abusive home, and was always a little afraid of strangers but was just fine with us.

It has taken me since June 9th, to be able to reread what I wrote the night of the 7th of June, and this long to share it with you. She lay in her basket beneath my desk as I wrote and at times I felt almost as if it was being dictated because the words flowed so freely...

The housing crisis - Humane Society style - Jun 2, 2010 - 10:35:56 PM


Dear Friends or the Animals in the Bahamas,

I am sure that many of you saw the dramatic news article in the Tribune this morning that if we do not find homes for the animals in the bulging Bahamas Humane Society perfectly healthy and sweet dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will have to be killed because there is no more room for us to house them. This was no exaggeration.This situation has been worsening for weeks as the economy fails to improve and more and more people are forced to surrender their friends because of lack of funds to feed them. This is what happened yesterday, we reached “boiling point”. I just could not let this happen on my watch, at least not without a major fight on our part.

I contacted most of our media and I have to say, hats off to the Tribune, who jumped right in and wrote a wonderful piece, front page and inside front with tons of pictures...

No Room at the Inn? - May 20, 2010 - 12:25:39 PM

KimIMG_ANIMsm.gif
At present the Bahamas Humane Society Shelter is over flowing….we have too many of everything… too many puppies, too many dogs, too many kittens, too many cats and lo and behold too many rabbits !!! Not enough homes!

 

Break down in numbers:

52 Kittens

25 Cats

22 Dogs

25 Puppies and

13 Rabbits…

 

If you could but see that amazing array of cats and dogs we have, mixtures, crossbreeds, big, small, long fur, short fur….every colour and personality…

 

We are not a “no kill” shelter, but deep down inside that would be THE dream, huh?

The Age of the Disposable Pet ? - May 6, 2010 - 5:45:02 PM


DogIMG_2223Sm.jpg
Oh, she/he is a great dog, BUT …(Pick any of the following…)

“We’re moving.“ ; “I’ve changed life style.” ; “I am going to be traveling.” ;  “We’ve just had a baby.”;  “We just don’t have the time.” ; or perhaps, “ Our new flat is too small”

Lately there has been a rash of dogs whose owners are just discarding them like a used Kleenex. One phone call to the Humane Society, BAARK, Proud Paws, Ark, AFAR, Kim, Laura, Melissa, Fina whoever and they can wash their hands of the responsibility and we can take over and find a home for their ex pet…

Oh What a Night! - Apr 7, 2010 - 10:51:16 AM

BHSflowerANIMsm.gif
Oh what a night!

Take 200 hundred people who love animals and love the music of the 1960’s and 1970’s, add some amazing out-fits, a smattering of flowers, a dash of wine, and a selection of wonderful silent auction prizes…..Mix in a large serving of sumptuous buffet and you will have a fantastic and successful evening.

That is exactly what happened when the Bahamas Humane Society hosted the first ever “Flower Power Party” at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort...

A Classy Night at the Fort - Feb 2, 2010 - 9:23:17 PM
BhumaneANIM.gif
Nassau, Bahamas - A classy night at the Fort: That’s what is in store for Nassauvians on Friday night, February 5th when the Bahamas Humane Society holds it’s B-Humane launch: “A Night with the Arts”, generously sponsored by the Swiss bank: Lombard Odier. This event has been painstakingly put together by the Fundraising and Events director of the BHS Rebecca (Becky) Armbrister. She first started to dream about it when she took the job at the BHS in May 2009.   It took months of planning, talking, cajoling, persuading, begging, pleading, patience, and…Oh  yes, hard work! On Friday that dream will become a reality at our very own Ft. Charlotte lit up by flairs, with a carpet scattered with paw prints and a host of guests all dressed in white and aqua…. with the splendid eighteenth century Fort as a majestic backdrop. What a great evening this promises to be.

No Room at the Inn? - Jan 9, 2010 - 11:10:38 PM

PuppyLovesm.jpg
I have now had the hardworking pleasure of being the President of the Bahamas Humane Society for two years …it has been a roller coaster experience with days of tremendous elations and days of dreadful despair and depression… I feel that trying to move forward and get people to understand works with three steps forward and two backwards…we are making progress with the general population but it is an uphill struggle.

2009 was a good year for us. A year of changes? Yes… But over all, a good year, with people coming forward to help us, people who care, giving of their time and money….We need both.

BAARK was created by some very proactive and dedicated people and they work very closely with the BHS…we are lucky to have their support and assistance...

The Power of Determination - Sep 2, 2009 - 7:12:41 PM

artshowTurtle_ANIM.gif
A lesson to be learned about the power of determination.

It was about two years ago when the magnitude of the sea turtle situation really hit me. I had always had a nagging concern for them, and had always been disgusted by the deplorable way they were treated after capture and prior to slaughter, but two years ago I realized that we had to do something to protect this fragile species tottering on the brink of extinction.

The Bahamas Sea Turtle conservation Group was born one evening at Debbie Krukowski’s home when a bunch of us gathered together to discuss the recent rash of large turtles being caught and paraded, lying miserably on their backs...
