FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – Sixteen more rescue dogs from Puerto Rico arrived at the Nassau County Humane Society on Friday. The dogs will be available for meet and greets and pre-adoption this weekend.
The Humane Society said the dogs appear to range in age from 10 weeks to 3 years.
The 16 dogs will be examined this weekend by medical staff. It’s expected they’ll need spay-neuter operations that will be paid for by the Humane Society before they go to fur-ever homes.
Nassau Humane said the stray animal population in Puerto Rico is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands and U.S rescue groups are trying to help.
The Nassau shelter has already welcomed 30 dogs from two prior airlifts organized by Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Palm Beach County. All 30 have been adopted.
