Humane Pennsylvania shelters recently rescued 17 dogs from Puerto Rico, through the SATO Project – a Puerto-Rico-focused organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned and abused animals throughout the U.S. Territory.
Tawny Kissinger, Lifesaving Programs Coordinator at Humane Pennsylvania, explains the importance of taking in these rescues; “This transport was so important, not only for the 17 dogs we assisted with, but for the sanctuary owner as well. Sadly, she was diagnosed with a medical condition that prevented her from being able to care for these sweet seniors. We are so fortunate here at Humane Pennsylvania to have the resources to be able to provide them with a safe and warm environment until we can find them their forever homes”.
While some of these dogs have already been adopted, and others are being cared for at The Humane League of Lancaster County and The Freedom Center for Animal Life-Saving, five of these rescues are currently available for adoption and ready to find their fur-ever homes. Adopters wishing to provide a loving home for any of these animals are encouraged to visit the shelter or HumanePA.org. All potential adopters are required to go through Humane Pennsylvania’s diligent adoption screening process (approval is not guaranteed).
