Who We Are


The St. Croix Animal Welfare Center (AWC) is the only companion animal welfare organization servicing St. Croix, providing care to thousands of dogs and cats each year. We are a 501(c)3 non profit organization.

Since 1973, St. Croix AWC has worked to stop pet overpopulation and better the lives of St. Croixs animals. Our mission is to promote the humane treatment of animals in the St. Croix community animal protection, humane education and community service.We strive to fulfill this mission through animal control, pet adoption, humane education, our low cost spay neuter voucher program and our commitment to cease animal neglect on St. Croix.

Just over a hundred animals are waiting to meet you and looking for a forever home. Either visit us during adoption hours 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday--Saturday or download an application from our website.

Adoptions Process


Upon submitting your adoptions application, the information is reviewed by adoptions' staff. A vet reference must be provided as well as landlord contact if you rent. Once an application has been approved, the animal will be scheduled for spay/neuter surgery. No pet is released to a private individual without being altered. Following surger, pets are ready for pick up the next day. Our adoptions process takes 7-10 days.

Adoption Fees


The adopton fee is $100 and includes all vaccines, de wormer received by pets during shelter care. It also includes spay/netuer surgery, microchipping and a license tag. At pick up new owners receive a copy of the pet's medical record, microchip certification, id tag receipt, information on local vets and local pet health issues of concern.
