Island Gems donates to I Love My Island Dog 



photoFRENCH QUARTER, Saint Martin –I Love My Island Dog Adoption Centre in the French side recently received 15 bags of 55-pounds bags of Pedigree dog food as a donation from Island Gems Charity Foundation.

The foundation was made aware of the adoption centre’s need by long-time centre supporter Philippe Milovidoff. He has also been an ardent partner of the Gems’ annual gala event. The Gems wanted to give him a special thanks for his party in their successful galas at Captain Oliver’s restaurant. Milovidoff suggested a donation to the shelter, a request the Gems were more than happy to fulfil.

Ursula Oppikofer, who runs the centre, was happy to get the food for the dogs awaiting adoption. Island Gems encourages people seeking a pet to consider getting a dog or cat from the shelter.
