    Just got home and we noticed the dog problem. In our welcome bag there was a flyer about an adoption program. I have it here somewhere. Of course the boys wanted to bring one home. If I find it I'll post the information. I didn't notice any dogs wandering around the resorts. We saw many in and around San Nicholas. Some wandering the streets. Some at houses. I saw 2 chained outside to dog houses. We only saw 2 cats. I also saw a donation box at Salt n Pepper saying they were supporting the cause. In line at the airport a family held a puppy (about 6 months old). I heard them say they adopted it and something about quarantine but the line was moving and didn't get a chance to ask about it.

    if the dog is going to the contininetal USA, there is no quarantine.
    all that is needed is:
    1. a dog (or cat)
    2. a valid veterinarian signed certificate stating good health

    it is NOT too late.
    there are MANY pups/dogs/cats/kittens in aruba that need a home.
    contact forum member BillstellaR or forum member SUGAR
    both of these fine people are very active in ARF Aruba.com animal relief foundation aruba.
    they are a group of aruba tourists and aruba residents that help with the animals of aruba...primarily dogs and cats.
    they provide veterinary services, education, adoptions/rescues.

    you too, can own (or be owned) by a true aruba conucu cat or dog.

    Any time we've come in contact with a dog in Aruba we've found them to be friendly and mild mannered. On occasion, we have had one come up to us on the beach at the Divi and when we stayed at the Radisson I had one come up to me when we were having breakfast at Gilligans. I will admit I find it a little unnerving when I see 5 or 6 of them together in a pack but we've never had issues with aggressiveness. The individuals working with Arff Aruba have such big hearts and are totally dedicated to finding the dogs a home.

    Saw this article today by chance. The cage where this dog is held is awfully small if he has to live in there. I think it's good that get informed how to be responsible dog owners and that veterinarians explain the rules and give tips.

    Google translation:

    Dog owners warned 96 times PDF Print E-mail
    Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 13:28

    ORANGE CITY - Since the operation of the task force Ley di cacho ', or the hondenwet, there are 96 official warnings have been issued and there five times a report was drawn up. Dog owners should be more responsible by law.

    The warnings and claims reporting are issued since July 1 this year. The Task Force is now active in three Bario, including North. The intent of the hondenwet is not to hand out as many fines, but to inform and warn, stressed the police. So should responsible dog owners treat their animals and treat them well. The platform hondenwet is also active on Facebook, which includes veterinarians explain the rules and give tips.

    A first version of the hondenwet was ready in 2003, Amigoe wrote earlier, and in 2012 this law was approved by the Parliament of Aruba. Since January 1 this year, the law actually in force, the monitor, handing out fines and collecting dogs was not immediately possible yet.

    Wow, just got done reading about the "Kill Cage" and I am deeply depressed! I guess I do not understand how they did such a great thing with the Donkey Sanctuary but with cats & especially dogs, nothing has been done. If I was to ever visit the "Kill Cage" area, I think I would go to every Hotel and tell them if they want the tourist to keep coming then donate a little money to ARF. My God, this is horrible. I will donate to Arf but they need more than my little donation.
    Thanks for letting me vent and yes, I am an animal lover.
