The only and official animal shelter of Suriname is located at the
Kanangalaan across the Paramaribo Zoo.
We give shelter to 65 dogs and 20 cats (almost all of them puppies and kittens).
All animals should find a new owner during their stay at the shelter.
The population of stray dogs and stray cats is still increasing. These are no positive developments.
are a serious threat for the public health and for the road safety.
Sheltering stray animals is unfortunately no sollution for this problem.
This problem must be encountered by means of ongoing action. With special projects, as a re-occuring sterilisation project, educational campagnes and providing educational material to schools, the foundation
of the Dierenbescherming Suriname tries to resolve the stray animal burden.
Help the Animal Shelter!
The animal shelter does not get any funds from the Surinamese government. We do our very best to
generate funds by ourselfs, by o.a. providing services like the hotel for dogs, animal transit
and the crematorium for animals.
Unfortunately, the costs are far in excess than the income
of the shelter, so donors and sponsors are desperately needed!
Adopt a pet
One way to support the animal shelter is to adopt a dog (SRD 125,-) or a cat(SRD 65,-).
is to sponsor a kennel for the lenght of 1 year, so that we can welcome multiple dogs and cats. For the amount of SRD 500,- (EUR 100,-) per year you will sponsor a dog kennel
and for SRD 375,- (EUR 75,-) a cat kennel.
This way you will help the Surinamese stray animals to stay at the animal shelter!
