Do you think that DOGS are
better people than people?
This tour is perfect you!
2. MEET THE GUIDES

When we arrive, you will gear up and meet a Montego Bay Animal Haven representative, who will give detailed instructions on how to
interact with the dogs.
3. MEET THE HOOLIGANS
(10:00 am - 10:15 am)
When the gates open, you will see a river of dogs running out with excitement to see you and asking for attention and care. Get to meet them all and see if there is a special one that steals your heart.
4. GO FOR THE HIKE
(10:15 am - 11:00 am)
Animal Haven guides will take you for the hike into the hills and dogs will follow. At the top of the hill you will make a 10 min rest stop to play with the Hooligans. Feel free to ask the guides any questions about the work of the shelter.
5. RETURN TO THE SHELTER

Hike back to the shelter to take more photographs, wash hands and buy souvenirs if you wish to support the shelter even more.

Drive back should take about 30 mins depending on traffic conditions and you should be back by Pier One Car Park just before 12.00 pm. If you wish to be dropped off at a Hotel, Cruise Ship Terminal or Airbnb location, there might be an additional fee applied for this extra transfer.
100% payment goes to support Jamaican animals
MONTEGO BAY ANIMAL HAVEN
Montego Bay Animal Haven is the only shelter in Montego Bay that works on rescuing and rehoming stray and abandoned animals. It’s been operating since 2009 surviving strictly on donations from general public.
All rescue dogs get proper medical treatment, vaccinated, spayed and recover after stress, before they are moved to the land in the hills, where they stay with other dogs until adopted.
HIKING WITH 100 HOOLIGANS
The founders of IRIELAB were looking for a way to help Montego Bay Animal Haven to raise funds to support the animals and thought of creating tours to the shelter.
However, the founder of the Haven had an even better idea! She offered to do a hike in the hills on the 17 Acre land that was provided for the shelter and take her sweet hooligans with guests. This is how Hiking with the Hooligans was born.
