    Cayo Animal Welfare Society – CAWS’s charge is to educate on the importance of spaying & neutering, and pass along information of spay/neuter clinics in your area. We provide basic health maintenance to homeless dogs/cats in our ongoing Stray Care program; with the goal of getting them healthy, off the streets and into a home. We are a connection to find a pet, information about animals in need of homes, alerts for lost pets, and we can refer you to your local registered Veterinarian.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of December 2, 2021

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
