St. John Spice has a new mascot (and owners Ruth and Ron have a new best friend.)
Say hello to Bella Spice, a shelter dog adopted by Ruth and Ron a few weeks ago.
Bella actually came from the Humane Society on St. Thomas, where they went to look for a pet at the recommendation of Ryan and the St. John Animal Care Center. Ruth and Ron were looking for a smaller dog, and the ACC didn’t have any.
Bella is lucky. Despite the beautiful facility and plenty of loving caregivers, the STT Humane Society ultimately puts dogs down who don’t find a home.
“We were extremely impressed by the St. Thomas Human Society, but they are overrun with animals who need homes,” Ruth says.
“They have a ‘Pets with Wings’ program to send pets to the states, and I’d love to see them get some attention from the folks who also support our St. John Animal Care Center.”
