Puppies in a Crate

As part of me having a Vegetarian Lifestyle and being a dog lover, it is very hard for me to hear this kind of news happening in Puerto Rico.

These situations happen so often on the Island I feel helpless so I pass along this info as we shared it on @veglatino and provided by our friend @mark_hayward.

Today we were notified by @Mark_Hayward via twitter that 11 puppies were abandoned and rescued by him and his wife Terrie. Here is what Mark stated to us,

“The pups were dumped on the road as you head towards Zoni Beach on Culebra. Terrie brought to the vet in Fajardo yesterday for de-worming and vaccines. There are tons of pics on Animal Welfare of Culebra Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Animal-Welfare-of-Culebra

If people want to adopt we do a very thorough screening process — check with their vet, etc. Also, Animal Welfare of Culebra is 100 percent support by donations so if people want to help out they can donate by following this link – http://animalwelfareculebra.org/support/

This picture touches our heart in a profound way because we have a black labrador at home. Please forward this post to all of those who may be interested.

    Thank you, Raul! With the help of good people like you and Alyssa Milano, perhaps all these pups will find the homes that they deserve….

      I am leaving on the 5th of April for LA. and get back the 11th. If I was not making that trip I would take one but I don’t want to leave Lucy the task of the Baby, Juanga (the troublemake in the house), and housebreaking a puppy.

      If when I am back there is one available I will gladly go get one.

    Ya pasé a mis contactos. Una pena que no enga espacio para una mascota más. Se ven chulísimos.

    I shared your post with Ayudando Animales Perdidos, they do great work. If you have time before your trip get in touch with them through their facebook page in case they need more info. I have two labs myself. Hopefully they will find good homes.
