Your Hosts: Irina and Animal Haven Montego Bay Animal Haven is a unique place in Jamaica with over 200 dogs. It's been run solely on donations since 2009, while rescuing and rehoming thousands of animals. My name is Irina. I’m an entrepreneur, traveller and Airbnb superhost. I live in Jamaica and I've been exploring the island since 2014 to find amazing OFF THE BEATEN PATH places and... I LOVE DOGS! We've teamed up with the Haven to share our passion for animals with you during this incredible once in a lifetime experience of taking over 100 "Hooligans" for a walk!

Then you will hike together with 100+ dogs across the hills. We have an access to 17 acres of land to do the hike and it's also a great way to see inland Jamaica with its wild beauty! This is nothing like you've tried before!
