On Friday July 2, the Potter League for Animals welcomes dogs and cats transported from El Paso, Texas to partners across the country, thanks to the efforts of the BISSELL Pet Foundation, Animal Rescue Corps, and the University’s Maddie Shelter Medicine of Florida Program, El Paso City Animal Services, and more.
According to the Potter League, this is the largest transportation effort in the history of the BISSELL Pet Foundation and one of the largest medical evaluation, testing, and transportation events in history.
The emergency transport flight leaves El Paso on Friday morning and arrives at Morristown Airport in New Jersey, where Potter League officials remove pets from the plane and make the return journey to Rhode Island.
“We’re always there to help animals in need and we’re excited to do something good for our friends in Texas.” Brad Shear, executive director of the Potter League, said in a statement. “The Potter League has been part of a national network of animal shelters for decades, and we all help each other when we need to.” Scheren went on.
The dogs must remain in isolation for five days, as required by Rhode Island state law, according to the Potter League. All dogs are neutered or neutered before adoption, up to date with their vaccinations and also given a microchip. In anticipation of medical and behavioral assessments, they will be available for adoption shortly.
The Potter League says there are currently many dogs and cats available for adoption and is asking anyone who wishes to help animals in need to consider giving homes to those currently available for adoption.
