What is Rescue Paws Curacao
Rescue Paws Curacao (RPC) is one of Curacao’s foundations dedicated to helping stray dogs on the island. RPC has had its own center in the middle of the island for a few years now. Dozens of dogs are taken care of here, from a pup to an oldie. Most of the dogs taken in by RPC were plucked from the streets. They were born on the streets or put on the streets because the owner could or would no longer care for them.
At the center, it is always a happy and sociable bunch with all kinds of happy little faces. The center is in full operation but also still under construction. Because they depend largely on volunteers and donations, it will take some time until the center is completely finished, but of course the dogs are already well taken care off taken. There are different sections at the center, each for a separate “target audience,” such as puppies, older quiet dogs or dogs with special needs.
Love for the dog
The center was founded 5 years ago and in the meantime they have built a good name on the island. Once started out of love for the dogs and in the meantime it has grown into this beautiful large center Therefore, the dogs are not just taken care of; more is done such as:
– Medical care if needed
– Sterilization/castration to prevent more stray dogs
– Socialization of the dogs
– Placement of dogs with new owners.
Come take a look & cuddle!
Rescue Paws Curaçao loves it when you come to take a look at the Center. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday you are welcome between 10:00 and 12:00. You’ll get a tour and while you see all the happy, sweet little dogs, you’ll hear about what it’s like at Rescue Paws and learn all about the dogs.
Of course, you also get to play and cuddle with the dogs. Even the puppies will be asking for your attention.
A visit to Rescue Paws Curaçao is completely free. But … as a foundation that runs on volunteers, donations and gifts, RPC can always a gift. You make the doggies tremendously happy with items such as dog food, dog toys, leashes, etc. In fact, anything that might be useful for a dog is welcome. If you can’t manage to stop by a pet store in advance, you can also just leave a small financial contribution. Nothing mandatory, of course, but every little bit helps to take good care of the dogs.
You can also leave a donation online at the Resue Paws Curaçao website.
