Calling all owners of ACC adopted animals! We want to see a pic of your ACC adopted animal!

Please send a photo to with a short blurb about you and your pet. Thank you - we can't wait to see what they are up to since they left the shelter.

Hey Lauren my name is Ashley Brothers. My husband, Ty and I adopted Parker in August 2011. We are from Morehead City, NC.

We adopted Parker at the ACC while on our honeymoon in St. John. We saw an advertisement for the shelter at our hotel and were curious to stop by. Everyone was so friendly at the shelter and Parker was too cute to leave behind.

Parker was the best souvenir we could have found and we feel we have a connection to St. John forever.

Parker has been a wonderful, fun, loving dog. We hope to one day take a family vacation, Parker included, to visit the shelter again!
