I have not been to Bonaire but will be heading there in early Nov. Question- do they still need volunteers? Also, what part of town\the island are they located? Is there a map with the shelter on it?

Spicy Mad, Welcome to BT. We are ALWAYS in need of volunteers and welcome those that are able to just come and socialize with our residents. We are located on Lagoen Road/Kaya Papa Cornes in Antriol. If you are coming from downtown Kralendijk, take Kaya Korona to Kaya Papa Cornes/Lagoen Road, which is a block or two past RBTT bank, and turn right. Continue on that road about a mile (I think it's a mile, my distance meter is not really good) and the shelter is on your right hand side. Look forward to seeing you there.

I'm so glad to hear there still is a animal shelter on Bonaire. I grew up on the island, and remember going out each saturday on my bike down the road from Hato to Rincon and finding boxes alongside the road with baby kittens or puppies, some half alive. I would bring them home, nurse them back to health, and find good homes. I don't think some of the island people knew what to do with kittens they did not want, and figured they would somehow survive in the mondi. If they knew they could drop them off somewhere safe, it would save alot of little lives. I wish I was there to help you.

I am glad to learn there is an animal shelter on Bonaire, too. It sounds like the great people who work there do wonderful work and I am VERY glad to learn (from their website) that all animals are spay/neuter before being adopted out. The only way to control unplanned litters is with spay/neuter. Not only is it birth control, but it also provides numerous other health benefits for the animal. I do plan to visit the shelter while on Bonaire, as I work for a volunteer group here at home that does cat rescues.

I have some guilders that I won't be able to use as my next trip is February. If anyone is going down that would be willing to take them to the animal shelter as a donation, I would be happy to mail them to a US address. Probably about $20+, but I hate to just throw money away!
