ShoreTrips says...

ShoreTrips has recently joined forces with Hope Floats, a non-profit, based in California, that, like us, has a number of volunteer-based activities already setup. ShoreTrips is privileged to be able to work with Hope Floats as we share a mutual love for the well-being of the islands. With the help of our travelers, we are certain we can make a lasting impression in the Caribbean.

This facility is about working to help the animals in our community and we have been doing just that since 1996. This clinic, which opened in April 1996, began with two rooms, no electricity, 24 kennels, one vet and one kennel worker. Today, they have 14 employees and care for over 300 animals per month, either found astray or given up by their owners for a variety of reasons. The staff does their best to care for them and place them in good, loving homes.

Volunteers are a crucial part of this operation. They foster animals in need, escort them to their new homes, assist in fundraising, coordinate adoptions...and much more! Being a volunteer is a great way to get to know about some of our shelter pets as well as make new friends with other volunteers!

Your help will be greatly appreciated and will truly enhance the remainder of your vacation. As you will have the afternoon free, ShoreTrips will be happy to arrange some beach time or a snorkel trip or whatever you might fancy.

  • Volunteer opportunities:
  • Animal Care
  • Grooming, bathing and feeding animals
  • Walking dogs
