Animal Care Center Auction Goes Live Today!

The view from Wharfside Hotel – You can bid on a stay here!

Nearly all of my island tour guests comment that we do not have roaming stray dogs like many other Caribbean islands. Well, that is thanks to the Animal Care Center (ACC), a no-kill shelter that’s located in Cruz Bay. If a dog is roaming, the ACC does its best to reunite it with its owner. If an owner can’t be found, the dog is put up for adoption. They also accept owner surrenders, and they have a large spay and neuter program for both dogs and cats. The ACC is an integral part of the community.

All of this takes money, as you can imagine. Today, you can help raise funds for the ACC by participating in its annual online auction. There are 19 packages to choose from, and all of the proceeds will directly support the shelter. Here is a list of items:

  1. Black Sheep Charters: 3-Hour Sunset
  2. Sunshine Daydream Boat Charters: Full-Day USVI trip
  3. Wharfside Watersports: Zodiac for the Day – Go Anywhere including Pizza Pi & Lime Out
