Dogs have benefitted the human race throughout history and exemplified loyalty and love. Because of lack of resources and education, humans have often failed to reciprocate those traits. Doggy Oasis International is committed to providing a safe, energetic, clean and loving haven for dogs who are homeless while socializing and training them in order to facilitate their re-integration in the human world. In the same vein, we expose these trained dwellers to the local populations to highlight their inherent value so as to encourage their stewardship and respect.
Stray and abandoned dogs have a home until they are either adopted or have a sweet end of life.
A 320-acre sanctuary in French Guiana, welcomes hundreds of spayed, castrated and vaccinated dogs. These dogs will otherwise have been left at the mercy of relentless cars, misinformed people, and endemic diseases.
Our Dogs become an instrument of change by showing the local population what they can do: pick up trash, soothe the elderly and sick, help restore dignity of inmates, bring responsibility to youth at risk, entertain, and assist the hearing or visually impaired. Because of their accomplishments and a strong educational campaign, our human neighbors learn to vaccinate, spay, neuter, and care for their dogs. Raising public awareness of the value of dogs is paramount to the success of our mission. With our trained packs, we visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons to educate while entertaining, comforting and serving the community. Our dogs even clean beaches, so they are not incorrigible scavengers that kill valuable wildlife.
