Be An Angel — “Pets With Wings” Needs Flight Volunteers

Written by Coconut Post

Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

December, 2021

Are you currently vacationing in the islands, then heading back home to Mainland USA? Did you know you have the opportunity to become a ‘real life’ Angel during your travels?

The holiday season is such a festive time in paradise. Unfortunately, the Humane Society of St. Thomas is currently overflowing with puppies and kittens and the island simply doesn’t have enough available homes to adopt them all. 

The good news is, you can help the cause by escorting an adorable animal to a good home in the states.

Transporting a “Pets With Wings” animal on your journey home means a precious pet’s life has been saved.

Thanks to the “Pets With Wings” program, it’s easy to volunteer and navigate each stress-free step. A Pets with Wings representative will complete the necessary travel paperwork and pay the airline fee. As a”flight volunteer,” you will be instructed on how to add your furry travel partner to your reservation. 

When it’s time to travel, a representative will meet you at airport check-in and introduce you to your traveling companion. You’ll be given a pet travel kit with the necessary information and supplies. When you arrive at your destination, a representative will meet you to take charge of the pet. 

By the way, you and your furry companion’s adventure will be posted on the Pets With Wings Facebook page, along with a great big “Thank you.” What fun — and what a wonderful way to save an animal’s life this holiday season!


 For more information, visit petswithwingsstt.com or call 340-643-0796. 

Not visiting the islands anytime soon? You can still participate in the effort — and help save the lives of homeless dogs and cats on the island of St. Thomas.

A BIT ABOUT THE CENTURY PLANT

Although the Agave Americana is commonly called the Century Plant, it typically lives only 10 to 30 years. Cultivated worldwide as an ornamental plant, it is native to Mexico and has been naturalized in many regions including the West Indies. Until the 1970s when entrepreneurs began shipping freshly cut Evergreens to the Virgin Islands during the holidays, the Century Plant was commonly used for a Christmas tree in many island homes, businesses and outdoor displays.
