WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The Humane Society of the BVI is a non profit organization, founded in 1975 and is the only animal shelter in the BVI, that offers a safe shelter to dogs & puppies, cats & kittens that have been abandoned, are unwanted and in some cases severely mistreated and abused. Unfortunately we have been given notice to the lease of our current premises in Johnson's Ghut and we are now seeking funds to develop our land in Josiah’s Bay with the steel structure we own. On 15 August 2023 we started building!
The plan is to build a larger and more modern shelter, with larger cages, cat pens, dog runs, veterinarian and boarding facilities.
PLEASE HELP US CONTINUE OUR MISSION!
MORE INFORMATION AND NEW PLANS
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
ADOPT or FOSTER
The purpose of an Animal Shelter is to find new homes for the abandoned dogs we are taking care of. We are always looking for people that can bring a dog or a cat home and give it the love and care it so desperately needs. If you cannot commit taking an animal forever, then please consider fostering for a few days/weeks/months

OUR NEW RENOVATION PROJECT IN OCTOBER 2018:
In October this year, GK Construction volunteered to renovate the old building at Johnson's Ghut as a donation. Heavily damaged by Irma, only part of the roof had been replaced by volunteers earlier in 2018. Now a new puppy play-pen and a new kitten play-pen with quarantine cages, a new bird cage, an extra storage shack, were added and the roof and walls were repaired and repainted.
