Our Big Fat Caribbean Rescue serves as the leading voice on effectively reducing the stray dog and cat population on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.

OBFCR carries out its mission by offering free spay/neuter services, and by sharing its knowledge of humane animal population control through its extensive community outreach program.

Post Hurricane Maria,
OBFCR proudly partnered with The Humane Society the United States to provide critical spay/neuter services to low-income communities on the island.


OBFCR has of October 2019 expanded our program to include establishing a sustainable wellness program for the HORSES of Vieques
Since April 1, 2017,
OBFCR has spayed/neutered over
2,000         dogs and cats in Vieques and vaccinated over 400 horses, dogs and cats.

Surreal times require great grit. Our volunteers are up to the challenge. Help us, help them. *BTW, this handsome Sato is Charlie, our logo dog. He knows how to keep himself and others safe.


Everybody loves community outreach day! So many new neighbours and their pets to meet,
