Puerto Rico Dog Rescue: An Underdog of the Underdogs Gets a Chance

Puerto Rico Dog Rescue: An Underdog of the Underdogs Gets a Chance
Englewood, FL, July 16, 2020 - Animal rescues are faced with missteps and occasional mayhem. Last night was both for many dogs and cats rescued from Puerto Rico en route to Miami, Florida. Several animal welfare organizations from across the nation traveled to Miami International Airport ready to help these animals find forever homes. 
Island Dog Rescue, a nonprofit based in Virginia Beach that saves animals from the Caribbean Islands, announced earlier this month that a special rescue mission was being organized for 300 animals, including cats and dogs. 
Suncoast Humane Society (SHS) rented a climate-controlled truck, gathered donated crates, adjusted staffing patterns, and sent a team of three prepared to help 50 dogs from Puerto Rico. After an extended delay, when the animals finally arrived, it was apparent that some rescue organizations weren’t going to receive the amount of animals they expected to take in. 
Out of all the animals that were flown in, SHS happily returned to Englewood with one frightened dog with a limp, who was originally found leashed to a fence. No one was interested in him. 
“Our organization is used to embracing the unwanted; the last of the litter, so to speak,” said Suncoast Humane Society CEO, Maureen O’Nell. “There was no way, after making such a brave journey, he was going to get left behind again. As a single passenger in a 26-foot truck, we brought our guy home this morning. He is going to need a lot of care and we will give it to him.”
It is still unknown how complex this dog’s medical needs are. SHS is calling on the community to come together to help give this pure island mutt a name and to help him find a loving, forever familyase visit Suncoast Humane Society’s Facebook page at facebook.com/SuncoastHumaneSociety to suggest a great name.
