Flying to forever… One pup at a time.

Our Team Members

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 lots of their free time in helping the cause.   

From entering every expense receipt into our QuickBooks account, to buying airline tickets for each dog, to coordinating puppy travel arrangements and buying travel supplies, to promoting the dogs for adoption, to working with Morlens Veterinary Clinic to ensure every dog is ready to fly, to interviewing and vetting adopters and foster parents, our team does it all. 

Above all, our team is  passionate about saving dogs from Anguilla and helping to give them a life they so deserve.
