On July 9th, St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center and partner shelters in four states welcomed 133 small dogs to New Jersey from five shelters in southern California to help ease overcrowding from wildfires and high intake. The dogs arrived at Morristown Airport through a California based operation, "Wings of Rescue." There are Doxie mixes, Chihuahuas and mixes, wire coated cuties, Poodle types and furry, fluffy little guys and girls all 20 lbs and under! Together with our east coast placement partners, we're able to widen the safety net for these adorable at-risk animals by moving them to areas where loving homes await!
In addition to the medical services/spay/neuter we always provide pets prior to adoption, it cost about $125 for each dog to board the airlift. We need our community's assistance to continue to respond to the need. Now is the perfect time to sponsor -- our Matching Gift Challenge continues until 7/31/16 so your donation to cover a dog's journey will actually mean tickets to a new home in NJ for TWO dogs!
