Reducing the Unwanted Animal Population on Roatan
One Spay & Neuter at a Time
Roatan Animal Support is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping alleviate the suffering of helpless animals on our island. While we help whenever possible with animal fostering, emergency medical care and adoptions our primary objective is to fund spay and neuter surgeries for stray animals and pets belonging to local families that cannot afford veterinary care.
Studies have shown that just one unspayed female dog, her mate and all their offspring can create over 2,000 dogs within just four years and after six years, that number can soar to over 67,000. We feel that sterilization is one of the most instantaneous, effective ways of significantly reducing the overwhelming number of innocent animals on Roatan that ultimately end up defenseless, starving, hurt and facing a slow, painful death.
Help us by donating to our spay and neuter campaign! We are working with community leaders to identify local islanders that need assistance in having their pets sterilized to help prevent their neighborhood pet population.

The Shelter Project
Roatan Animal Support is involved in a partnership with Roatan Operation Animal Rescue and a group of investors to build and operate a fully functional animal shelter on the island. Currently, we are in the process of forming the necessary legal entities under Honduran law with the guidance of the Municipality.
This is will be a long road ahead and most likely a few years in the making but will be a major step in the right direction for the island. We will be sharing updates along the way, so stay tuned!
