Saga receives generous donation from SPTC
Wednesday, June 29th, 2016
On Friday, June 24th, the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC), and Mayor Daniel Guerrero made a major donation to the Saga Humane Society. On behalf of Area Rep Manuel Heredia Jr., Mayor Guerrero announced the donation of a red carry-all golf cart with a year of free licensing, two lots in North Ambergris Caye, along with two months’ rent at their current location at Sea Star Street. The donation was given to assist Saga in furthering their work in the community. Not only is the golf cart much needed by Saga, but the extended trunk is convenient when transporting animals.
During the presentation, Mayor Guerrero spoke of his positive relationship with Saga since taking on his role of Mayor in 2012. He also recalled the excessive number of stray animals that led to an unfortunate eradication in Ambergris Caye. “After that wakeup call, I gave my 100 percent support towards the team at Saga Humane Society. With support from Health Inspector Horris Patton, and as long as I am Mayor, there will be no eradication here in San Pedro,” said Mayor Guerrero.
The Saga Humane Society has played an active role when it comes to regulating the population of domestic animals in San Pedro, and promised the Mayor that they will continue their efforts in reducing the number of strays. “I am very happy and appreciative of the donations. We extend a huge thank you to the Mayor, and we will continue to do the best we can,” said Ingrid Lima of the Saga Humane Society.
Saga was established in 1999 with a mission to replace animal cruelty with kindness. Their goals are to provide medical care and shelter to animals in need, as well as funding veterinary care to low income families. If you wish to donate to Saga Humane Society, you can call at 226-3266, or visit their website at www.sagahumanesociety.org.
