The Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association (CIMRA) have completed their “Cruising to rescue” charity over the weekend which shoppers at Cost-U-Less gave food and other treats to the “Canine Friends” group which helps struggling dogs.
The Association started on Saturday (25 June) collecting dog food and any other dog-related products from shoppers and registered motorcyclists for a ride-out the following day. Motorcycle riders who were registered for the charity met up at the Turtle Farm and rode throughout the island before making final stops in North Side.
It’s been 10 years now since the riders have been running charity drives in the community and three years helping out unfortunate dogs. President of CIMRA Keith Keller said he is happy his team stepped in to save the dogs which could have eventually perished.
“They’re dogs that have been abandoned basically so the dog pound goes, the catchers catch them and take them to the D.O.A and if they’re not re-homed or their owners aren’t found then they get euthanized,” Mr. Keller said.
CIMRA is expected to complete other charities for the year including the Meals-on Wheels for the elderly and the Toys for Tots charity which happens in Christmas.
