The Casa Blanca Guesthouse proudly supports the Cayo Animal Welfare Society (CAWS), the Humane Society of San Ignacio, Santa Elena and the Cayo area.
CAWS Mission: To provide for a better life for all the domestic animals of Cayo, through education, health, and maintenance.
The activities of the Cayo Animal Welfare Society are as follows:

- Facilitate low cost spay and neuter clinics by working with local veterinarians and volunteer organizations.
- Conduct Stray Care where dogs are collared and tagged with FurCode Tags which record the medications given for fleas and ticks, worms and other procedures.
- Cooperate with local Government to develop a plan to trap, fix and release stray dogs and cats as a means of population control.
