Looking to add a new furry member to your family? Please consider checking out I Love my Island Dog Association., located in Saint Martin, French West Indies. Many dogs were left abandoned and disregarded after the devastating hurricane, Irma. The island also does not educate on the importance of spay/neuter and so the dog population is very high. I had the honor and privilege to bring supplies and visit the rescue. It was an amazing experience. Please contact me for more information. Island dogs are special dogs!
