Cayo Animal Welfare Society works toward and helps conduct public awareness and education programs designed to educate the public on animal care, the need to spay and neuter, parasite prevention, and prevention of animal cruelty. They facilitate low cost spay and neuter clinics by working with local veterinarians and volunteer organizations.
In addition, they conduct Stray Care where dogs are collared and tagged with FurCode Tags which record the medications given for fleas and ticks, worms and other procedures. Finally, Cayo cooperates with local government to develop a plan to find, fix and release stray dogs and cats as a means of population control.

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.
