Jet  is currently in the shelter on Saint Eustatius and is a courtesy post for our island partner, SEAWF. Jet is in desperate need of a home. Jet's time is quickly running out with limited space and so many dogs at the SEAWF shelter.


Jet is 2 and a half years old, around 35 pounds, spayed and current on vaccinations. She is a high energy, high strung dog who must go to a home without children, cats or other dogs. She walks well on a leash but is very reactive when faced with another dog. She is affectionate and a cuddler with people that she likes. Jet needs an experienced, patient dog parent.


This is not a dog for everyone but we hope she is the perfect dog for someone!!!


Please email us at islandpups@msn.com if you can give Jet the home she so urgently needs. Island Puppy Rescue will put you in touch with the SEAWF shelter volunteers. We can also assist with pick up at NY/NJ/PA airports if needed.

In Memory of Mango, 2010  to 2019

As 2019 draws to a close, we pause to remember Mango,  one of Island Puppy Rescue's first adoptions in 2009. She traveled  by boat  from Anguilla to St. Martin and by plane to the United States in 24 hours. At her first taste of Christmas Turkey, she became an American and never looked back. The "brains of the operation" and known as the "adorable one", she settled in Long Island and was a source of love for her family. With her passing over the Rainbow Bridge in 2019, she will be missed in 2020 by the Island Puppy Rescue community.

Island Puppy Express - Adopt a Caribbean Puppy

The Caribbean  island of Saint Martin, a French and Dutch Overseas Territory, and other island in the Caribbean, have an overpopulation of puppies and dogs. Exotic looking, smart and with fabulous personalities, some puppies are fostered right here on the East Coast of the USA! 

On the Island of Saint Martin, we work with I Love My Island Dog Association, the Island’s largest animal shelter and rescue organization.



Through Island Puppy Rescue’s  partnership with  I Love My Island Dog Association , travelers from and to  St. Martin volunteer to bring pets to Island Puppy Rescue foster homes, where they are further socialized and matched up with the perfect families! All pets have been examined by vets, vaccinations have begun.

Recently, Island Puppy Rescue has partnered with the St. Eustatius Animal Welfare Foundation to assist

in finding forever homes for puppies from the island of Statia, part of the Netherlands Antillies.

Island Puppy Rescue sometimes also fosters puppies  brought by travelers from the Cayman Island Humane Society on Grand Cayman,  Potcake Place on Turks and Caicos, the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF) and Save a Sato on

Puerto Rico.

International travelers returning from St. Martin,St. Eustatius, Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos other Caribbean destinations can also volunteer to participate in the Puppy Express by contacting the local animal rescue organization on the island they are visiting.


And best of all: Saint Martin, St. Eustatius in the Netherlands Antilles, and other Caribbean nations    are rabies-free countries, as recognized by the CDC!

Hurricanes Irma & Marie

 Hurricane Irma devastated the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, the home of our  rescue friends and partners. The damage was staggering and unimaginable. Fortunately, the wonderful people who volunteer at St. Martin’s I Love My Island Dog Association  and the animals in their care were safe and our partners  continued their mission.   

On Saint Martin, the Association's shelter, which housed over 2 dozen dogs and cats,  was  completely  leveled by the storm. The Association erected temporary facilities to house foster puppies awaiting transports off the Island, while the Saint Martin Government prioritizes relief and rebuilding efforts.   We  assisted with supplies to the Association and with temporary facilities. We are  awaiting word on  the effort to  rebuild the devastated shelter. You can contribute to the rebuilding of the shelter by making a donation directly to the Association  to assist  in maintaining its temporary facilities and rebuilding the St. Martin Shelter.

You can read about the Association's efforts to continue to help the dogs of St. Martin after the devastation of Hurricane Irma in Soualiga Post, a publication covering events in St. Martin:
