Lucky Paws Foundation thanks Spay Day supporters
Font size: [A] [A] [A]
Spay Day on Feb .24 was a successful fundraiser for Lucky Paws Foundation, which hosted a sail to Buck Island to swim with countless turtles in their natural habitat.
This sold-out activity raised more than $4,000, and 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to providing FREE sterilization services for those cat and dog caregivers who cannot afford to pay for the procedures.
Most important, this effort is helping to eliminate the suffering of unwanted homeless animals. The goal is totally ending the needless annual killing of thousands of perfectly healthy adoptable animals. Creating a better world for the animals in our care takes a compassionate, caring community, and the community starts with you.
Please do your part in helping Lucky Paws Foundation win the war against animal overpopulation. If you take care of a community cat colony or cannot afford the cost of altering your own pet, please call us today at 340-513-1854.
Kudos to our participating veterinarians: Dr. John Moore, Dr. Marilyn Moore, and Dr. Andrew J. Williamson. Without their dedication and support, Lucky Paws Foundation could not provide this financial assistance to the community. These professionals know that spaying and neutering is at the core of the animal welfare movement in providing a better future for the animals of our island.
Special thanks to everyone who participated in Lucky Paws Foundation World Spay Day 2013 Swim With The Turtles event: Our steadfast partners, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort and West Indies Corp.; our talented chefs, Rick and Sandy Jelovsek and Patrick Bellantoni; Jayne Winter, Jim Hines and Claudia LaBorde for their undying devotion to our community's animal welfare; to all Lucky Paws Foundation friends who came on board Heavenly Days and made this event a success, and to the businesses and individuals who generously donated silent auction items. You all understand Lucky Paws Foundation mission to end the killing of healthy, adoptable animals and because of you we are now one step closer to becoming a "no kill" island."
The animals thank you.
