Rescue Paws Curaçao is a non-profit organization that stands for reducing animal suffering in Curaçao.

After providing limited shelter services to a small number of dogs for a long time, we knew we wanted to do more. Although we wanted to keep providing care in a central location, we also realized that we had to go beyond the traditional shelter model in order to relieve the suffering of a greater number of dogs in Curacao.

In October of 2014, we came up with the idea to continue as a foundation while expanding our shelter and outreach operations. We believed that we should begin to consider the island’s dog situation from a broader perspective and do more for them. A board of directors was formed, and a name chosen. In this way the Rescue Paws Curacao Foundation became a reality.

The focus shifted to helping dogs in multiple areas.
– Sterilization.
– Reception and adoption.
– Help on location.
– Information provision and education.
