The links below are provided for information purposes - the existence of a link does not imply that Border Collie Rescue recommends or approves of the information provided by the website or the organisation it links to.

South American and Caribbean Animal Welfare Links and Contacts

Many South American countries and Caribbean Islands have a National SPCA and other specific organisations set up to care for the Domestic or Pet animal population. There are also many organisations operating in South America and the Caribbean for the preservation of  wild species. Some are based there - others abroad.
These organisations often cover many countries.

Our list below is of organisations you can approach over issues relating to Domestic and Pet animals, although their operations often cover wider issues. If we have not been able to locate a domestic animal rescue in a South American country or on a Caribbean Island, the country or Island is not included in our list. This list is not definitive and we would welcome suggestions for additions.

if you come across a case of animal cruelty, abuse, poaching or unlicensed hunting/exportation of endangered species, please report it to your  local SPCA branch. If you are concerned about these issues or other local issues of animal testing, animal welfare and animal care, you can get further information and support campaigns by contacting an organisation below or visiting their website using the links.
