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 HSST supporter was determined to help.  She established the Pet With Wings Program in 2012.

Our GOAL:

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 us at 340.643.0796 (Rhea) or  340-690-0215 (Sig) or email us at islandbarks@gmail.com or operationsaveapuppy@yahoo.com  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.
