About RESQ Dog Brand

Meet the maker!

Hello Everyone!! 

I am Colleen! I'm the heart behind the brand.

I am animal lover to the core. I have a  pup named Sadie who I rescued while living in St. Croix. She is the most amazing dog, and my #1 RESQ Dog Brand Model. 

Animal Rescue

I have been involved in animal rescue for over 10 years.

My Family and I recently moved to Northern Florida from St. Croix USVI. While living in St. Croix I became very involved in animal rescue and fostering.  I was able to help find over 200 rescued animals their forever homes in the states. Most of the animals I rescued I fostered in my home to get them ready for their forever homes. I spent a lot of time rehabilitating hurt, sick and very shy dogs and puppies. I had fallen in love with the island and the animals so moving was very hard on me. 

After moving I wanted to stay involved with helping island 

rescued dogs. I continued to foster and coordinate the pups transports and adoptions here in Florida, and along the East Coast. I couldn't do this without the support of my family and friends that volunteer their time to help these special pups every time I ask. So Thank You <3

Why RESQ Dog Brand?

I started RESQ Dog Brand because I want to spread awareness to the growing population of homeless dogs in the Virgin Islands. With every bandana I sell I want it to make a difference to not only the Island dogs but also for the Special pup that gets to wear it. 

To me RESQ bandanas are so much more than just a dog banana, it is a chance to give an Island stray dog a fresh start and a better life.

A portion of all bandana sales with be donated to rescue dogs in the Virgin Islands.


Thank you for your support!
