Support A Barbados Animal Shelter - Crisis Appeal

We are currently helping a great number of animals, but there are many, many more out there that need us. With your support we can continue our work.

Our vision is that every dog or cat will enjoy a healthy life in a happy home and we won’t rest until we achieve it. Sadly, however, not all will be adopted, many are overlooked time and time again, through no fault of their own. We promise those animals that we will not forsake them and that they have a safe home with us for as long as they need it. But we really need your help.


By volunteering you can make a difference to animals’ lives - and yours too Volunteering at Ocean Acres is extremely rewarding. It offers the chance to meet like minded individuals and to get valuable experience and training. If you’re thinking of adopting a dog, then come along and learn how to walk them and care for them. It’s great exercise, good company and you can really make a difference. All set in the beautiful countryside, in the parish of St John on the scenic East coast of Barbados. If you’re on holiday and missing your pets, then come along and get your feline or canine ‘fix’! The animals will thank you for it and we will too!


Foster carers are an integral part of our rescue and rehome process. Foster carers provide a temporary housing for dogs and cats until they find their forever homes. Maybe you can foster full time, providing temporary housing until an animal is placed in their forever home. Or perhaps you can only commit to a shorter period because you travel or are only in Barbados for a certain amount of time. Or could you foster some tiny baby puppies or kittens that need special care and feeding? Whatever your situation, please fill out our foster questionnaire. The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save!
