In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic the Humane Society of St. Thomas (HSSTT) will be offering free dog and cat food to residents in need. During these difficult times keeping pets and families together is imperative. If you are unable to afford food for your pets, we can assist. The HSSTT is focused on the needs of pet owners in our community and we are very pleased to once again partner with International Fund for Animal Welfare.

We first worked together after Hurricanes Irma and Maria, IFAW answered our call for help to provide assistance during those challenging times. IFAW helped assist with the first evacuation flight of 300 animals, as well as much needed pet food and veterinarian supplies. That freed up needed space for rescued animals and reunited a number of pets with their owners in the States. We are so thankful for IFAW’s continued commitment to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

There will be two points of pick up to receive food, one at the shelter, and the other on Thursday May 21 from 1-3pm at The Salvation Army near the Market Square, backstreet. Pickup days and times will be at the shelter Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 11am-3pm. A very special thanks to Major Steven Pearl of The Salvation Army for allowing us to use this location.

PLEASE NOTE: Following the current guidelines set out by the USVI Government, masks WILL BE required to pick up food.

Thanks to your generosity, over 2,000 homeless animals received shelter, food, and life-saving veterinary care last year. With your help, many of these dogs and cats have been placed in loving homes. On their behalf, thank you for your help.

With your donations and support, we will continue our lifesaving work until there are coupled with education, we will save them one stray at a time.

Together we can impact our community in a lasting way.

Donate here or by sending a check to HSSTT P.O. Box 8150 St. Thomas, VI 00801.

The lives of hundreds of animals are at stake.

Because they all deserve a full tummy and extra love… A “Second Chance”

Since 1957, the Humane Society of St. Thomas has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect and working to create an environment of respect, responsibility and compassion for all animals throughout the territory.

Our functional campus sits on 4.7 acres and consists of five major buildings.  We are an open admission shelter, meaning that our doors are always open for any animal that we can legally accept. The Humane Society of St. Thomas is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are the only animal shelter serving the residents of St. Thomas, and other than a small contract with the government of the Virgin Islands we are dependent entirely upon donations and the good will of the community.


Humane Society of St. Thomas is a Non-Profit Organization

Over 2000 animals pass through our shelter each year.  We strive to provide the highest quality care to each and every visiting animal.  Your membership and support are essential to our ability to continuously meet the demand of maintaining this campus.  Whether volunteering your time or contributing funds, every person can make a real difference.
