The Animal Care Center of St. John suggests that besides hot sauce from St. John Spice or duty free liquor, you take home a dog or a cat. The ACC says off-island adoption is easy. The ACC’s kennel is on the south shore road, near the Sprauve museum, just a bit past O’Connor’s gas station.
Island vets can provide rabies shots and a healthy certificate, and an ACC volunteer has put together information about the process. An one-way airline fee for a pet ticket is $50 on delta, and $80 on American and US Airways. Pet carrier bags can be bought at Canines, Cats and Critters, the pet store in Palm Plaza, near the Westin.
Also, The ACC just received its first shipment of t-shorts for Wagapalooza – as soon as they can be ordered online, we’ll let you know. Look for our ad on the shirt. The Center is one of our favorite organizations.
