Dog Tags-It is the Law

In the Virgin Islands, animals must be registered with the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center. Tags cost $5 per year and can be purchased at our shelter facility. Tag purchases are recorded and extremely beneficial in locating missing animals. In addition, the Territory requires that owners leash dogs while in public.

Help us end the stray dog problem on St. Croix, leash and identify your dog.
