By Zoila Palma: An animal welfare board has been established in San Ignacio and Santa Elena.

Councilor responsible for Sanitation, Humane Society, Police Relations and Public Safety, Omar Rodriguez hosted a meeting for the first of its kind, animal welfare board.

The meeting was held on Sunday, April 11 at the Conference Room of the town council.

The board includes the participation of a veterinarian, Specialists from the Cayo Animal Welfare Society experienced independent animal rescuers and members of the community who view the caring for and aid to animals as an important part of the development of the Twin Towns.

 “This Board is the beginning of a public and private partnership that I want to see continued with each new Town Council. Cayo is blessed with so many natural attractions, wild-life and those we call our Pets that need to be preserved for our visitors and for future generations,” Councilor Rodriguez said.

Discussions included the importance of public awareness, education, and involvement in the health and safety of pets and wildlife in the communities.

The Animals Welfare Board is now assisting in the review and revision of the current regulations that speak to animal registration, animal cruelty and fines for infractions under the existing Laws of Belize in order to improve them.

Councilor Rodriquez says that an internet public education page is under development and will be published shortly.

Those interested in joining the board can contact Councilor Rodriguez or the Town Council’s Facebook page.
