Save The Pets With Wings Program!
The Humane Society needs your help. Our Pets With Wings program is in trouble. American Airlines is considering ending the program due to a complaint from one passenger—yes, one passenger. Over the past two years, American has been responsible for getting over 150 animals to new homes, whether through adoptions by tourists or being sent to our sister rescues in the Boston area. That number translates into over 300 animals being saved—because for every one we get out, there is space for another. All of the animals we send to the mainland get adopted within five to ten days. These same animals have sat in our shelter here for months.
This program was something that American did for us locally approved by Puerto Rico. Since the complaint, the corporate offices have gotten involved so the program is in jeopardy of being cancelled or limited to two per month.
Please add your voice to this letter! It will be forwarded from the Humane Society to American Airlines Corporate Division.
Why is this important?
The Humane Society of St. Thomas' Pets With Wings Program, a shining partnership with American Airlines, has been responsible for the safe travel and adoption of over a hundred animals since its inception. Unfortunately, this wonderful program is in jeopardy of being discontinued by AA Corporate due to a single complaint in the last month! Locals, Visitors, and Friends of the Virgin Islands— Add your voice to this message and help us secure a future for all of our animal companions! All signatures and letters will be presented to the Humane Society and sent to American Airlines Corporate Headquarters.
