We are moving!

After an eventful year we can finally say that we can move forward!  We have agreed with our neighbors that they will withdraw their objection on the condition that we will move to the rear area on the land that we have been awarded, so that the reception is hidden from Villapark Fontein. We now have a year of experience at our temporary Center and based on this experience we are going to build a new Center, even safer and better for all our dogs!

It is a huge job, in which we once again desperately need your support! Together we can do this, we have every confidence in that!

Would you like to help, then please visit our GoFundMe page for more information!


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.

Because of the recent developments regarding the presence of the COVID-19 virus on Curacao we have decided that the center will be closed to visitors starting March 17th. This measure will be evaluated constantly and will at least be until the end of March.
Our visitors, volunteers and care takers are too precious to us to have them exposed to possible danger of infection.
If you are interested in adopting a dog, please take a look at our website www.rescuepawscuracao.com and make an appointment if you want to meet. Tel +599 9 5222806 (WhatsApp only).
