About Bahamas Humane Society

The Bahamas Humane Society is a non-profit organization, comprised of a compassionate team, dedicated to promote the humane treatment of animal and prevent cruelty to animals through continuous education in a variety of methods, to end pet over-population through an aggressive spay/neuter campaign from 2013-2018 and as a result of the two objectives to become a no-kill shelter by 2020.

The BHS was founded in 1924 as the Dumb Friends' League, speaking for those who could not speak for themselves. By 1947, the name had changed to The Bahamas Humane Society. The BHS is Nassau's oldest charity; in 2014 it celebrated its 90th anniversary of service to The Bahamas. BHS receives only $15,000 in funding from the government each year, relying on donations, memberships and fundraising for the rest of its operating budget.
