Promoting the sterilization of 8,000 dogs and cats.
During the last two months, the associates of Aruba Marriott put their efforts together to raise funds for the ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ program, in an effort to improve animal welfare and reduce the amount of stray dogs and cats on the island.
The dedicated associates and their families, volunteered to organize three different activities to reach the goal of 25,000 Aruban Florins. The first activity was a dog walk where a total of 110 participants and 30 dogs walked for a cause and also got the opportunity to purchase t-shirts, dog treats and dog bandanas. The second activity was a flea market and food sale held at the parking lot of Do It Super Center, where Aruba Marriott associates and different organizations including the Sales & Marketing team of the Marriott Vacation Club and Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort generously donated items to sell during the market and Caribbean Overseas and Tropical Bottling Ltd. made generous donations for the food sale. Additionally, The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba donated t-shirts for this event and Disney Recreation was present to entertain the kids. The third activity was a Duck Race, held at Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club’s lazy river. Associates and the local community bought ducks for the race and the first 10 ducks to reach the finish line got the opportunity to win great prizes. All funds collected from these three activities has been officially donated to the ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ program.
The ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ movement aims to reduce the amount of stray dogs and cats on the island by sponsoring the costs of spaying and neutering and by raising awareness within the community on the importance of providing proper care for pets. Additionally, dog owners can register for a special price for spaying and neutering through this program.
The staff and management of the Aruba Marriott would like to thank Do It Super Center, the Sales & Marketing team of the Marriott Vacation Club, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Caribbean Overseas, Tropical Bottling Ltd., The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, Ministry of Infrastructure and Disney Recreation for their kindness extended to this very important cause.
