WINGS OF RESCUE - JULY 2016
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. In addition to St. Hubert's the shelters listed below have welcomed dogs from this case into their care.

ST. HUBERT’S ASSISTS DOGS ONCE DESTINED FOR SLAUGHTER ON SOUTH KOREAN DOG MEAT FARM - APRIL 2016
[Madison, NJ] (April 28, 2016) ― An emergency shelter operation has been set up at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center to welcome and care for more than 120 dogs rescued by Humane Society International (HSI) from a dog meat farm in South Korea. The dogs began arriving on April 26th and are being provided medical treatment, time for adjustment and will later be put up for adoption.
The dogs are part of a group of 250 dogs and puppies rescued by HSI’s Animal Rescue Team from a dog meat farm in Wonju, South Korea. The case is part of HSI’s efforts to redirect farmers to engage in other economic activities and who agree to permanently end the farming of dogs for the meat trade and dismantle the cages. The farmer who released these animals will now be growing mushrooms; other farmers HSI has worked with have chosen to grow blueberries.
The dogs will be placed through shelters across the North East. St. Hubert’s estimates they will keep twenty or so dogs for direct placement. Shelters on the east coast where these dogs will be available for adoption include*:
