Animal Shelter Bonaire

The Animal Shelter Bonaire is a refuge for cats and dogs until they are adopted by their new owners.

The Animal Shelter Bonaire also provides a boarding place for cats and dogs and started a gift shop on the premises to help raise money to sustain the shelter.

Refuge for cats and dogs


Animal Shelter Bonaire is a refuge for dogs and cats that can no longer be cared for by their owners, have been abandoned, or were born in the wild and brought to us by concerned citizens and tourists.
On average, the Animal Shelter houses 150 dogs and 60 cats.
Our staff and volunteers take very good care of these animals. All animals are dewormed, vaccinated, neutered or castrated, and if necessary treated for any illnesses. Then they wait for a new home.

Boarding Place


Animal Shelter Bonaire provides a boarding place for the cats and dogs of Bonaire. The boarding kennel caters to approximately 8 to 10 dogs and 10 cats.
Each boarding animal must be fully vaccinated before entering the Animal Shelter’s Boarding Kennels. Proof of vaccinations is mandatory in order to protect your pet, as well as the other animals living in the facility. We require all dogs and cats to be treated for ticks and fleas with a product such as Frontline prior to arrival, otherwise, they will be treated upon arrival at owner’s cost.

Daily Dog Boarding Rates:
One dog – $10. /day
Two dogs in one kennel – $15. /day
Three dogs (maximum) in one kennel – $20. /day
Daily Cat Boarding Rates:
One cat – $8. /day
Two cats in one kennel $11. /day

Gift Shop

Help fund our cause by shopping in our new gift shop. We have a wide selection of dog tops, leashes, animal gifts and t-shirts for you to choose from featuring our new logo printed on them. These items would make a great gift for any animal lover.
