Off the Rocks Rescue is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to the aid of homeless cats. Based in St. Thomas, USVI and Wellesley, Massachusetts. The two locations enable us to have excellent continuity of care: we can identity and prepare adoptable animals in the USVI for transport to New England where they can adjust and move on to adoption.
At our St. Thomas rescue, we are very busy socializing kittens and cats and providing them the beginning veterinary care (including spay and neuter) necessary before they fly up to Massachusetts. It is not unusual for us to have kittens who need to be bottle fed. We collaborate with Lucky Paws Foundation as active participants in the TNR protocol of trapping, neutering, and returning feral cats back into the wild near a steady food source. While trapping, we look for adoptable kittens and cats to take in and prepare for transport. We also find kittens at feeding stations and dumpster sites and a network of rescuers on island take in and transfer cats to us. We provide aid for special needs cats on island that might otherwise have been euthanized by taking in and funding surgeries such as necessary amputation and eye enucleation.
