Pennsylvania SPCA Partners With Puerto Rico Rescue to Save Dogs

puerto rican dogs

Sato Dream Home and the Pennsylvania SPCA have teamed up to do something that will forever change the lives of seven dogs from Puerto Rico. You see, there is a big problem with stray dogs in this little Caribbean area. The island’s vets and animal rescues are not permitted to practice the trap, spay/neuter, release practice. What this means is that the dogs on the island already homeless are reproducing rapidly since they are not permitted to be fixed, increasing the homeless dog population by more than the island officials would care to admit. The situation becomes even worse when you consider the fact that there are only five animal rescues on the island and between all five, there is a 99% euthanasia rate. Most dogs are in shelters for less than a full day when they are put down.

The Sato Dream Home team works to place as many dogs as they possibly can in other countries with recues so that they have a fighting chance of being adopted. The Pennsylvania SCPA has agreed to take on seven dogs. They’ll be carefully chosen to ensure they are healthy before they are brought to the United States, where they will then spend two weeks in quarantine before being released to join the other dogs so that they can learn to function correctly and become rehabilitated enough to move on into a home of their home. We think that the initiative is a good one, and we are happy to say that this is a project worth mentioning.
