The team at Terra Luxury has recorded another success through their partnership with the K9 Friends Barbados Charity as sponsors of a cause aimed at funding and facilitating all local canine welfare organizations.

Opening to great anticipation, Barbados’ furry friends took the spotlight at the K9 Friends Barbados Charity auction on December 23, at the lovely Apes Hill Country Club. The evening was a grand showing of spirit and humanity as over 300 persons - both visitors and locals - came together for the charitable cause.

Opening to great anticipation, Barbados’ furry friends took the spotlight at the K9 Friends Barbados Charity auction on December 23, at the lovely Apes Hill Country Club. The evening was a grand showing of spirit and humanity as over 300 persons - both visitors and locals - came together for the charitable cause.

Of the most notable attendees were its celebrity patrons Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman, the former serving as co-host alongside Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE, and the latter pledging £5000 to the cause by securing herself two VIP tickets to the opening night of Harry Potter on Broadway.

By the end of the evening, the charity managed to raise not only funds but also important awareness to the plight of the island’s furry residents, rendering the island’s canine charitable efforts in good hands.

Karen Millen, Treasurer and Founding Trustee at K9 Friends Barbados, took the time to congratulate and thank the Terra team on their continued support for the cause, saying:

“It was great to work with you all. We rely totally on donations and sponsorship to enable us to help the dogs on the Island, along with all other canine welfare groups. Our new clinic will provide a much-needed service of neutering the dogs of owners who cannot afford to take their animals to a Veterinary Clinic.”

Founded in 2014 by Millen and Danielle Mulligan, the animal wellness charity has spearheaded many initiatives that have made important strides in canine welfare in Barbados - namely helping the Ark Animal Welfare Society of Barbados to establish its own operating theatre as well as procuring a dog shuttle. They continue to equip local bodies with the necessary tools, best practices and general knowledge to manage the canine population in as humane a way as possible.
