The Humane Society of Grand Bahama has become the main recipient charity of the Grand Bahama Dog Days Half Marathon. Here, Siobhan Antoni-Bates and Nikki Waugh present the  check donation to Tip Burrows, the manager of the Humane Society and their hard working staff.

Every year Dog Days grows, which means every year they can give more! Although the GBHS receives the majority of donation the organisers have decided to add an additional charity annually that change. This year The Grand Bahama Children’s Home will receive $5,000 in assistance. 

The Grand Bahama Children’s Home was formed to help care for children who needed to be removed from their families for reasons of abandonment, abuse or neglect. The home cares for up to forty (40) children ages 0 to 12 years.

In 2017 other recipients of raised funds include the Grand Bahama Rotary Emergency Water Relief Foundation. This facility operates year round to provide safe, clean drinking water to Grand Bahamians.
