The Humane Society of St. Thomas (HSSTT) is a non-profit animal shelter located in the U.S. Virgin Islands dedicated to eliminating cruelty, abuse, and the overpopulation of animals. We receive minimal local funds and rely on donations and special events.

HSSTT provides a wide variety of animal welfare programs to island residents and their pets, including pet adoptions, humane education, spay/neuter assistance, animal rescue and animal control.

There are many different ways you can help us to reduce animal suffering whether it be through adoption, volunteering, education, participating in our special events throughout the year, or making a donation to support our programs.

You will find information on all of these options, plus a whole lot more on our site. Together we can make a difference in the lives of homeless and neglected animals, which, in turn, will make a difference in all our lives and help make this a better community.

PETMEDS graciously supports our cause.

25 Creative Ways to help animal shelters

Can you help?

Elaine (my wife) and I are taking up a ministry in Bermuda later this month. We hoped desperately to take our dogs with us. They have been part of our family since they were puppies. However, they don't meet the import requirements and we are unable to take them. We have been trying (unsuccessfully) to actualize the next best option; finding them a loving home here in the Virgin Islands. These dogs are protective of the home environment, good with people and accustomed to a lot of physical touch and attention. They are very intelligent and respond well to their owners. Help us find a home for one or more.

My telephone number is 513 8745.

Thanks so much.

Dear HSSTT Friends:

The shelter is seeking adult volunteers to oversee student volunteers on Saturdays and Sundays.... The student volunteers are eager to help but need training and guidance. Some students work in the cat cabana, some work in the dog kennels, and a few help in the vet tech suite. They arrive around 9:00a.m. and leave about 3:00pm. Weekends are especially busy times for the staff, and your help is needed.

This is an important position as we provide opportunities and examples to our youth. Please consider giving your time to supervise and train our youth in humane care, as well as in the benefits of volunteering. For more information and to volunteer, please call Lisa Williams, Office Supervisor, at 340-775-0599.

Expenses from fostering animals can be deducted, tax court rules

The U.S. Tax Court has concluded that people can deduct some of the expense of fostering a pet for an approved charity. The ruling was the culmination of a case in which a woman sued the Internal Revenue Service commissioner disputing the assertion that she could not claim a $12,068 charitable contribution for expenses she incurred while caring for foster pets in her home.
