St. Croix Animal Welfare Center 2016 Annual Achievements
The St. Croix Animal Welfare Center is pleased to share our progress and achievements for 2016. Through combined efforts of increased adoptions, stateside transfers (Thank you Healing Paws!), and Trap/Neuter/Release of feral cats, the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center saved the lives of 539 more cats and dogs in 2016 as compared with 2015. A total of 1,155 lives saved!
In addition, 1935 cats and dogs were seen through our on-site Low Cost Wellness Clinic and are now living healthier, happier lives. Many pets who might otherwise have been surrendered were given the necessary care so they could remain with their families.
We renovated an old storage building that now serves as Animal Intake. Our new “Flea Market West” had its grand opening in October and is already operating in the black. And we have begun upgrades on the Low Cost Clinic building to increase our veterinary services for St. Croix pet owners.
This has all been accomplished SOLEY through generous donations from our Community and stateside supporters, income generated from our Flea Markets and Wellness Clinic, fundraising efforts and with the help of all our wonderful volunteers.
We strive to continue improving the daily care of the cats and dogs housed at the Center, to welcome volunteers and to provide friendly customer service.
The St. Croix Animal Welfare Center is deeply grateful for all our community has done to assist us in helping our island’s homeless dogs and cats in 2016. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
All the Best in 2017!
