dogs rescued in Puerto Rico for adoption in Berks | Regional News from Berks
READING, PA – Several dogs that were recently rescued from a sanctuary in Puerto Rico are now looking for their forever home in Berks County.
Reading-based Humane Pennsylvania announced on Tuesday that five of the 17 dogs are available for adoption by those who wish to provide them with loving homes.
Humane Pennsylvania rescued the dogs through Project SATO, a Puerto Rican-focused organization that aims to rescue and relocate abandoned and abused animals across the United States.
“This transport was so important, not only to the 17 dogs we helped with, but also to the owner of the sanctuary. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with a health problem that prevented him from caring for these sweet elderly people. “said Tawny. Kissinger, Humane Pennsylvania Rescue Programs Coordinator. “We are so fortunate here in Humane Pennsylvania that we have the resources to be able to provide them with a safe and warm environment until we can find them their forever home.”
Some of the 17 dogs have already been adopted; others are treated at the Freedom Center for Animal Life-Saving in Reading and the Humane League of Lancaster County.
Those wishing to adopt one of the five dogs currently available must go through Humane Pennsylvania’s selection process.
Each adoption includes:
- Humane Pennsylvania 30 Day Adoption Health Supplement
- Sterilize or sterilize (before adoption)
- Vaccinations (including current rabies vaccination) and dewormers
- Flea treatment
- Microchip and chip registration
- Free one pound bag of Science Diet pet food
