Adopt a Forever Pet

The Source wants to help reduce the overpopulation of unwanted pets in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Every week we will feature a dog or cat from the hardworking rescue organizations and hope someone will find their fur-ever friend on this site. (All animals have been vaccinated, neutered and are healthy.)

This is Sarena. She was found at the dump with her sisters in terrible condition. But all have been rehabilitated and Sarena is ready for her forever home. She is around 8-9 months old and is a Pit bull mix who is dog friendly and very playful.  She has met cats and gets along fine with a proper introduction. She is super loving and affectionate and would be happiest in a fenced yard with people who love her. She has been microchipped and is up to date with her vaccines, so take this sweet baby to your home. Call 340-513-7113 to meet this beauty and email to adopt Sarena.

Pettie is about five and a half years old and has been at the St. Thomas shelter for two years. Pettie really needs a home. He weighs about 50 pounds and is one St. Thomas’s world-famous coconut retrievers. He is such a nice dog- he loves people and gets along with other dogs. He loves to play with his toys and loves to eat his food and treats. He also adores going on walks and is easy to handle on a leash. Call 340-775-0599 to meet Pettie.

Do you love a squishy face dog? Meet Leo! This snuggly boy is under a year old and is already 51 pounds of love.

He’s incredibly calm despite his age and seems to understand he’s a big dog, so he’s very careful not to bump into people or step on their feet. He gets along with other dogs and loves people. It might take a minute to warm up because shelter life can be stressful and confusing. Give Leo a chance – he’s ready to go to his new home. Come meet him at Pet Place next to FoodTown.
