Utila is a tiny pearl of an island just off northern coast of Honduras. It is famous among divers from all over the world to dive among Utila’s magnificent reefs or swim with majestic whale sharks. Utila is also a home to about 7000 people, an interesting mix of English speaking Hondurans, Spanish speaking Hondurans from the mainland and foreigners of all kinds who decided that they could not live anywhere else.

And where there are people, there are domestic animals: dogs, cats, rabbits, cows, sheep, goats, cows, horses, chicken and who knows what else. Some end up in the pot, but others are much loved family pets. Just like people, animals get sick and need care. Too many unwanted pets on the streets cause accidents and create a mess.
