We know everyone is busy with the holidays, but we know many are wanting to be charitable and are trying to figure out how they may be able to give back in the New Year. Why not volunteer on one of our many teams?
We are currently looking to fill several volunteer positions. These crucial roles are the heart of the organization, responsible for screening, interviewing, and thoroughly vetting adoption or foster applicants to ensure each of our rescued animals ends up in a safe, loving, positive living environment upon leaving the shelter. In addition to this vital role we are also seeking motivated individuals to help book and organize events, flights, write bios for our adorable adoptables and post on our website.
Depending on what volunteer role you decide on, some require minimum 5-10hrs per week , these positions are self-monitored in that the duties and responsibilities can be coordinated around your work and life schedule, as long as tasks and responsibilities are getting done within the required timeline of course, we wouldn’t be able to help so many animals without crucial volunteers assisting us in Saint Lucia.

When I think back to the early days of HelpAWS, I remember how hectic it was if we brought in 12 puppies in a month. Back then, it was mostly just me, rescuing and sheltering the pups in our bathroom, spare bedroom and, often, even under my bed, and relying on my contacts back home in Canada to eventually get them adopted out (except the 6 dogs and 6 cats I couldn’t part with) in Saint Lucia.
But these days, it has become quite common for us to bring in more than a dozen pups a week, or sometimes even in a matter of days. Now that word has spread on the island that our shelter doors our open, there isn’t a day that goes by without some sort of call for action.
Today we welcomed six sweet little furballs into the HelpAWS family. A resident of the island found the pups after they had been dumped by a stadium up north. Not wanting to see them struggling to survive, she intervened and took the pups into her home, but she couldn’t keep them.
Although it’s always a strain to add more mouths to feed, we knew it was important to get them into the shelter and properly vetted and cared for before anything tragic could happen to them, like many before. The sooner they are rid of fleas, ticks, and worms, the better their lives will be! These sweethearts are on the road to happily ever after, and we are excited to watch them grow and thrive in Saint Lucia.
If you would like to help with the cost of their care, donations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org using e-transfer, Zelle, or PayPal, or to @helpaws using Venmo. We truly appreciate the ongoing support. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
