Andi is a part time resident who spends 3 weeks on island and three weeks in the states. We met her when she stopped by our Adoption Clinic one Tuesday and fell in love with all the animals. She is amazing and wanted to do something to help. Andi is blind and learned how to make amazing pens and keychains that she makes from her home. She donates all the beautiful items she makes for us to sell and all the proceeds go the ACC.
Andi didn’t stop there, she wanted to do more. One Tuesday at our Adoption Clinic she met one of our senior dogs, Sweetie, and fell in love. She decided to foster her while she was on island for the 3 weeks and see how she did. Sweetie is old and has a bad leg and limps and cannot go on long walks. Andi fell in love with her as soon as she went home. Because she had 2 other dogs at her home in FL, she was not able to take her there, but she now keeps Sweetie with her the moment she arrives on St John until the moment she leaves. For the 3 weeks that she is gone, Andi sends her on vacation to Canines, Cats and Critters Boarding Facility where she loves it there. Since her time with Andi and all the love and attention, she has stopped limping and is extremely healthy.
But Andi still wanted to do more. She has joined our team of volunteers and reaches out to our donators and thanks them via personal calls and letters so our supporters know how much their donations mean to the animals. We are blessed to have such an amazing person as part of our team.
