History – Saga Humane Society was founded in 1999 to monitor and control the stay cat and dog populations on Ambergris Caye. Saga also handles adoptions, fostering and improves the general health and well being of both domestic and wild animals on Ambergris.

NGO – Saga Humane Society is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, established to prevent animal cruelty and replace it with kindness to all animals. Saga, a full service hospital, with a pharmacy, and provides medical care and shelter to animals in need and subsidized veterinary care for low-income families.

Stats – Due to the pandemic and complete financial devastation for months in Belize, many
families needed extra assistance to care for pets putting additional strain on our already
strapped humane society. SAGA provided free vet service for 171 Island pets in 2020. The
shelter also got maxed out on strays. With 60+ animals needing foster care or permanent
homes and a cost of sheltering $2,000 – $2,500 USD per month, this organization needs our
help. (Note that cost does not include regular procedures such as spaying or neutering,
tests, vaccines, or any other standard animal treatments.)

Education – Saga provides an ongoing humane education program to the island. Helping
people understand the benefits of spaying and neutering as well as proper pet care.

Schedule animal time – Whether you’re on vacation living on Ambergris, join the Saga
volunteer dog walkers or go play with the kittens, you will be glad you did and the animals
love the attention. Please reach out to help Saga give more care to their animals via the
Saga Humane Society Facebook page or

In closing – SAGA would like to thank all the Halloween supporters who will make theur
costume contest a big success and help raise 10k or more for Ambergris Caye animals.
