Humane Society of St. Thomas Animal shelter in St. Thomas, VI

Since 1957, the Humane Society of St. Thomas has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect and working to create an environment of respect, responsibility and compassion for all animals throughout the territory. Our functional and new campus sits on 4.7 acres and consists of five major buildings. We are an open admission shelter, meaning that our doors are always open for any animal that we can legally accept. The Humane Society of St. Thomas is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

We are the only animal shelter serving the residents of St. Thomas, and other than a small contract with the government of the Virgin Islands we are dependent entirely upon donations and the good will of the community
