Obviously the dogs do not magically get forever homes. It takes a strong team in North America to give these dogs the exposure they need.
We also need volunteers to screen applications by reading the application and making phone calls to the applicant and their references.
Once the paper applications are "conditionally approved", a home visit is required. There is a checklist to help with the home visit, and sometimes, if the applicant is located in a remote location, the visit is done by video call.
We do interview, often over the phone, for most of these volunteer positions. Please submit below if interested.
Prior to export each dog needs vaccinations by a veterinarian and examination by the Ministry of Agriculture in St Lucia. The Ministry issues each dog an export certificate. We can ALWAYS need help with these vet runs. If you are in St Lucia and are willing to help, please use our Whatsapp button to contact us.
Dogs need a ride to the airport to catch their flights. We desperately need volunteers in St Lucia to give them and their crates a lift. Sometimes the dogs fly accompanied with a passenger and other times they fly unaccompanied on Cargo flights. Please complete the form below if interested.
Are you flying TO St Lucia? Would you be willing to escort our empty crates and donated supplies? Our volunteers would meet you at both airports to assist. Please ask how you can help before booking your flight. Some airlines have more generous programs than others.
Puppy Porters are those individuals, sometimes vacationers, willing to escort our dogs on Commercial Airlines. Our volunteers meet the Porter at both airports to dispatch and collect the dogs. Our dogs are desperate to get to their forever homes. Please contact us if you are interested in helping.
Couriers are those that pick up the dogs form the Airport at destination and shuttle them to their forever and foster homes. Sometimes couriers are needed to collect crates or drop them off to Passengers flying TO St Lucia and to pay the GST at Customs when commercial dogs arrive.
We are always looking for foster homes in North America to house our rescue dogs. If you are interested, applications can be found below, or please complete our online form under the tab entitled APPLY ONLINE.
