Over 100 dogs evacuated from Puerto Rico flown to Morristown for adoption
Over 100 dogs were flown from Puerto Rico to Morristown Saturday on a special charity flight.
They were evacuated from the island ahead of the peak hurricane season in the region.
"There are over 500,000 stray dogs on the island of Puerto Rico, and if we weren't down there rescuing the dogs, they would get hit by cars and you know, die in numerous ways," says volunteer coordinator for the Sato Project, Kristin O'Brien.
President and CEO of Wings of Rescue Ric Browde adds, "...There's no reason that a pet should die anonymously in the shelter when there's a home waiting for it, and there's a shortage of pets up here."
Wings of Rescue has operated these special flights since 2012.
