I’ve been with CIHS for over 10 years. My favourite thing about working here is talking to people and helping them to adopt an animal, whether it be a puppy, dog, kitten or cat. I want to make sure the animals will be taken care of and that they will find their forever homes.

Bruno is my favourite dog in the shelter. He is about 7 or 8 years old. He came to us because his owner lost her house and could no longer keep him. She loved him very much and because I saw how much she cared for him, made him very dear to me. He is a lovely dog, with a great disposition and he loves his treats. It’s really sad for both people and animals when hardship strikes.

I have a dog named Bibi. She is an Australian Shephard/Dalmatian mix. I rescued her from the Department of Agriculture a few years ago when she was 3 months old. I love to play cricket on my only day off, Sunday. And I also love going to the beach and just relax. I also like to go to the bar to meet new people.

First and foremost, I love dealing with sick animals. I love to help them heal and get them back to good health, sometimes both physical and mental. I enjoy spending time with them, giving them plenty of TLC and give them the proper medication they need to recover. Secondly, I enjoy educating the public and trying to make them understand the responsibilities involved when adopting an animal. I try to encourage people to adopt not shop.

I get very attached to the dogs that need special, medical attention. One of them is a black dog named Roscoe, he was hit by a car and brought into the shelter. Unfortunately he lost one of his hind legs but he is the sweetest dog ever. He is currently in foster care.

I don’t have a pet at the moment. I took care of 2 dogs for a little while until I found them good homes because unfortunately I could not keep them. My life currently revolves around the shelter, which I love but on occasion I also like to party and socialize with my friends.

I love helping people to find the right purchase. I love happy customers. We recently had a fashion show and it was a big hit and we had a lot of fun with it.

It is not really a shelter dog but my favourite dog is Bibi (Jason’s dog). She’s so sweet. I have 2 dogs, Ship and Tucker, both Cayman mutts. I love to read, at least 1 book a day, love gardening, crafts and cooking.

I’ve worked with CIHS for 5.5 years and I love being in a job that helps homeless animals. My favourite dog is Babsy. She’s such a gentle soul.

I have 5 dogs, they are all rescues. Star is a Shephard Mix, Marley is a Pitbull mix, Rocco is a Rottweiler mix, Yoda is a Bulldog mix and Breakers is a Pitbull.

I enjoy island life with my fiancé and I’m getting ready to have my first child.
