Motorists are being urged to slow down outside Cayman’s Humane Society as dog walkers struggle to cross the busy road.

And now – thanks to the Leo Club of Grand Cayman – they have no excuses not to know there are plenty of canines crossing North Sound Way.

New signs have been erected informing motorists: “Caution – Slow Down”.

It comes after a teenage dog walker was injured as she crossed the road with one of the animals at the shelter.

Leo Kedeshia Dunn-Thomas of the Leo Club said: “There was an incident a while back related to a volunteer dog walker crossing the road by the Cayman Island Humane Society.

“The Leo Club of Grand Cayman saw the need to assist and with the help of the National Road Authority, the Leo Club of Grand Cayman was able to donate two road signs “Dog Crossing – Slow Down”.

“We hope that the dog signs will be effective in that zone and drivers will respect the speed limit and also the volunteer dog walkers.”

Jason Jairam of the Humane Society said: “We are extremely grateful to the Leo Club of Grand Cayman for
the signs.

“They are excellent and really stand out well. We would just urge motorists to take notice of them and slow down.

“The volunteer dog walkers and the Humane Society do a fantastic job for us and we are always on the lookout for more.

“But their safety, and the safety of the dogs, is paramount and we cannot stress enough how important it is for motorists to slow down when passing our centre.”

The LEO Club of Grand Cayman is a non-profit youth organization for young people between the ages of 18 to 30. This youth generated club was established under the sponsorship of the Lions Club of Grand Cayman in April 26, 1975.
