BETA rescues stray and abused animals, while combating abusive pet shops and the illegal trade of wildlife, which is so often witnessed. This could not be done without our extended family that we rely on and treasure so much. To the volunteers, and animal lovers that give their time and effort we would like to thank you- we could not do what we do without you.
Thinking of adopting a pet? BETA has many loving, beautiful cats and dogs that are waiting for you. Our facilities count around 850 dogs and 200 cats, between our dog and cat shelters. Most of these pets have had a bad past, and they are waiting for a second chance at life. All our animals are followed by vets: they are vaccinated, de-wormed and spayed/neutered.
