Flying to forever… One pup at a time.

Our People

Meet our Team

At Fly To Freedom Dog Rescue we have a small but mighty and lean team comprised of dedicated Anguilla dog enthusiasts. 

Our team members own Anguilla dogs, know what it takes to save these dogs, and dedicate much their free time to helping the cause.   

From entering every expense receipt into our Quickbooks account, to buying an airline ticket for every dog, to coordinating pick-up and drop-off times at the airports and ferry terminal, to promoting the dogs for adoption, to working with Morlens Veterinary Clinic to ensure every dog has the vaccines he/she needs, to interviewing adopters and foster parents, our team does it all. 

Above all, we are passionate about saving the dogs from Anguilla and helping to give them a life they so deserve.
