Reach out to the Sanctuaries in Barbados to discuss which animals are available and which would best suit your lifestyle.

PLEASE REMEMBER:

  • Animals should not be picked for their looks, but for their behaviour and for what suits the living conditions you can provide.

    • Very active dogs suit adopters with active lifestyles. They require space to move around and lots of exercise.​ These animals would not be well suited to a small living space where they will not be walked or played with often.

    • Smaller animals and older animals often appreciate less active lifestyles and are happier to sit at home with you all day and go for walks less often.

    • Puppies adapt very easily and can fit well into families with sturdy children or other pets.

  • Consult the Sanctuaries for which pets they feel will fit your lifestyle best. They are familiar with their animals and make the best match-makers!​
