For more information, Please call the Humane Society - 340-775-0599

Bella needs a good home, so do many of the other animals at the shelter.
Bella is an island mix, who was abandoned by her owner. She is sweet, spayed, trained!
Lucky Paws will pay her adoption fee if you give this girl a second chance for happiness in a forever home.

They also always need volunteers for helping out at HSSTT(tu)!

My little boy was set to go to Boston and the deal fell through. Now he is mine and he gets a lifetime of love right here on STT. They really do deserve a happy home instead of a little kennel at the humane society. I hope someone can help. They really really appreciate someone taking them in and show it with lots of doggie love.

Dear friends and supporters of Lucky Paws Foundation,

Please find attached the halo that we placed in the paper on March 20 as well as the ad promoting the FREE spay/neuter.
Thanks to those of you who supported our last Swim with the Turtles event on Feb 24th, we are able to offer this spay/neuter services FREE to people in need.

Please tell your friends to call me: if they have a pet or an outdoor colony in need of spay/neuter and they cannot afford the cost of surgery, they can take advantage of this offer.

No Kill has been achieved in other areas by focusing on low cost/no cost spay/neuter to decrease the euthanasia. I am convinced that we can accomplish it for St. Thomas! We need to provide more and better public education as well as accessible spay neuter services for all!

NO CAT OR DOG should be euthanized simply to make room for more homeless pets: PREVENTION IS FAR KINDER THAN DESTRUCTION. For too many years we accepted destroying perfectly healthy animals simply because they are a "surplus"...but are we doing our best to prevent them from being born in the first place?

Lucky Paws advocates for every animal's right to be safe, healthy and valued. We advocate for the non-lethal control of stray and abandoned cats, through the proven and effective TNRM as they are a major component of the "surplus".

We recently entered into a partnership with the Family Resource Center to foster pets who are in domestic abuse situations. Victims of domestic violence will often stay longer than necessary in horrible conditions when fearing for the safety of their pets.
Family Resource Center provides a temporary safe place for the human victims....Lucky Paws takes care of their beloved pets. There is a strong link between domestic violence and animal abuse. Our goal is to shape a safe and humane environment for all. If you can help foster an animal in need please contact me.

We also have new Cat Cafes which are being built thanks to another Lucky Paws friend: Christine Paratore, owner of A Better Counter.
I attached a request form with a few prototypes. These structures are badly needed to replace the ones in the field which are falling apart and to help us expand our work to other locations in need.
Please consider joining the many other program supporters who are concerned about our community's overpopulation problem by completing and returning this sponsorship form.

With your help the Cat Cafe and SNIP programs of the Lucky Paws Foundation will continue to reduce the number of homeless, sick, hungry and unwanted pets in our community and will help create a more compassionate future for generations to come.

Stay tuned for ...... Terry's Law. A new program to start in the coming months for dog registration, control and enforcement of existing laws.

Thanking you in advance for your continued support of our mission.

I don't know if that will work since the animals from HSSTT have to leave from STT.
You can call them to find out or call Dellia @ Lucky Paws or call your STX shelter to see if they also send animals to US mainland to be adopted.

The shelter here in STT is so full they are not accepting any new animals which means that the ones on the streets are at risk as are the ones in the shelter which may have to be euthanized to make room. It's a sad and awful dilemma. Bella still needs a home as well as many other dogs and cats. Lucky Paws on STT needs volunteers as does the shelter. Donations to pay for food and the Spay and Neuter programs are in need and welcomed as well. Any amount of time or money will help. Thank You!

There are two programs in STX that send animals to the states. Call the STX Animal Welfare Center 778-1650, they do Pets from Paradise. I do not remember what the other program is called but they are not related to the shelter.

Alana33 - I'm so glad I had room for 2 hitchhikers on STJ last Sunday who were heading to the ferry dock to spend 3 days on STT and yep you guessed it they were flying home to Boston on Wednesday. I gave them all the info on the Humane Society and they said they would be more than happy to take 2 dags back. I called Reha and left a message where they were staying on STT and followed up and they successfully transported Jack and Lacey with them 🙂 I truly wish more people knew about the program

I am so glad that you were able to help facilitate this and 2 pups have a chance at a new life. :@)
Hope more people will remember to pass the info on and more animals may have the same opportunity. (tu)(tu)

Perhaps the Connections board on St John would be a good place to get the word out (put up a flyer). Lots of travelers read it. I wonder if Tourism might help? It is a worthy cause, they might. I bet some tourists would help out if they knew about the program.

I was thinking maybe we could partner with Delta, American Airlines and JetBlue so that upon approach to St Thomas airport they could make an announcement over the intercom letting arriving visitors know that the St Thomas Humane Society is looking for escorts to transport dogs back to Boston (or whatever city they need) and that it will not cost the visitor any money, that they will be met at the airport upon departure with the dog and met upon arrival by the adoptive family and to please call the Humane Society and the number can be found in the phone book (good luck finding a phone book at a hotel but maybe someone at front desk could get it for them) on-line or on Facebook

Ideas on who to contact - just a thought
