We rescue and provide in-home foster care, cover veterinary costs and transport fees for the animals of Puerto Rico to join their adopted homes in the US.
The Animals We Rescue
We focus on rescuing litters of puppies that have been abandoned or are in unsafe conditions. They have been left for dead without their mother to feed and protect them.
What We Provide
Aside from their basic care, one of the most important things we provide is socialization with people and other animals. This is a key factor in determining their success throughout the adoption process.
We begin basic puppy training skills, including potty training, commands such as sit, stay, down, and the practice of safe/slow eating for good “table manners”. Many of the puppies have been starving and can have issues guarding food or eating too quickly because they have learned that food is very scarce.
Where the Animals Go
All of the shelters we transport to are on the mainland and are “no-kill” shelters.
Some dogs are even adopted by families in the US prior to leaving the island. Most other dogs will be ready to be adopted when they reach their destination shelter.
If a dog exhibits any aggression or need for ongoing socialization, they are transported to a facility that specializes in training and rehabilitation. This allows the dog to go on to have a happy, fulfilling life in the right type of home based on their needs.
Dogs are not spayed or neutered before transport because of their age. All dogs will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption at their destination shelter on the mainland.
