The Belize Humane Society and Animal Shelter (BHSAS) was founded in November of 1996 by a small group of concerned Belizeans and two Peace Corps Volunteers. They saw a need for an organization to protect the animals and provide a sheltering facility within the Belize City area.

BHSAS’s focus is to humanely stabilize the “free roaming” population of dogs and cats within Belize City. The Society works along with the Belize City Council and the Department of Public Health Central Region to address sanitation and health related issues.


BHSAS recognizes that spaying and neutering (sterilization) is the only humane solution to the stray population problem. Pet owners must be educated and encouraged to sterilize their pets to decrease the number of animals being born.

The Society currently offers subsidized pet sterilization and educates the general public at dog shows, rabies clinics and other events to help achieve its goals.
