Here, amidst its breathtaking beauty, a silent crisis unfolds daily on the lush, vibrant island of St. Lucia. Homeless, abandoned, and maltreated dogs and cats fill the streets, their eyes filled with a silent plea for compassion, understanding, and a chance at a new life. SLAPS, a humble yet fiercely passionate organization, is a beacon of hope for these voiceless souls. Our commitment is as unwavering as it is simple: To rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome as many of these precious lives as we can. But we face a dire challenge—a challenge that grows each passing day—we are running out of funds at a time when the number of animals in need is continuously rising.


Since November 2022, when we moved our canine friends into a new center, we have embarked on a remarkable transformation. Once dilapidated and unfit, the site has been lovingly remodeled into a haven for dogs and puppies. With several exercise areas, a new intake/isolation area, and a basic surgery room for spaying and neutering, our sanctuary is a testament to what can be achieved with a bit of resourcefulness and a lot of heart. Across the way, our feline friends enjoy the care and comfort of a volunteer’s home. There, cats and kittens find solace and joy as they wait for the chance to be part of a loving family.

The sight of stray, abandoned, and orphaned animals haunts us daily. Though our facilities burst at the seams, our volunteers tirelessly feed and medicate strays, providing a lifeline in another wise bleak existence. Yet, our resources are stretched thin. The cost of food, vaccinations, flea, tick, worm medications, and surgeries loom over our mission. But here's where you come in.


We are more than an organization. We are a movement fueled by compassion and love—a movement you can participate in. Your donations are not just contributions; they are lifelines. They signify hope, relief, and the promise of a brighter tomorrow. Your support enables us to continue our vital work, preventing suffering and opening up a world where every dog and cat in St. Lucia can live in health, safety, and love. Join us. Your help is critical, whether through financial support, volunteering a tour center, or opening your heart and home in the USA, Canada or Europe to a pet in need of adoption. With our help, the process is not as difficult as you might imagine. Together, we can impact the lives of these animals who ask for so little but deserve so much. Your compassion, your actions, your support—it changes everything. For every tail wag, every contented purr, and every grateful gaze that speaks volumes, know that your generosity makes these moments possible.

Be the change. Be their voice. Support SLAPS today.
