Pets With Wings Program
St. Thomas has an overabundance of animals and not enough homes to support the population of stray, abandoned and unwanted animals. Leslie Hurd, a frequent visitor to the Virgin Islands and HSSTT supporter was determined to help. She established the Pet With Wings Program in 2012.
To transport as many animals as possible from the HSSTT to rescue groups and shelters where there is a shortage of adoptable pets.
Here is how you can help to Save a Life:
- Transport, we need volunteers to travel with pets back to the following places: Massachusetts, New York, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, D.C. and Florida. If your destination is not listed, please call (Rhea) 340-643-0796 or (Sigrid) 340-690-0215. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we add new locations frequently.** A volunteer will meet you both here in St. Thomas and at your arrival destination to bring and pickup your furry travel companion. Transport an island coconut retriever and give a pet a second chance at a forever home.
