Posted on Thursday, November 12th

This Flight is Their Only Hope When I vacationed to St. Croix earlier this year, I visited the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center and learned about their Paws from Paradise program — a partnership with stateside animal shelters in the U.S. that helps give abandoned and unwanted animals on the island a better life on the mainland. My daughter Emily and I were grateful for the opportunity to meet this extraordinary team, who save more than 4,000 animals each year on an island with a population of only 50,000.
