The Atlantic Small Dog Rescue is working with Animal Rescue Corps and a California shelter to place a number of dogs on P.E.I.
Friends of Palm Springs Shelter, located in California, is overrun with dogs which have been rescued from puppy mills, neglectful owners and hoarding situations.
“We will be opening our hearts and homes to as many as 15 dogs from California, offering them a new opportunity to find permanent homes here in Canada,” says Nahleen Ashton, vice-president of Atlantic Small Dog Rescue.
Ashton, who resides in the Bridgetown area, says the Palm Springs Shelter is flooded with dogs.
“We really require the public's help for this rescue in several ways. It’s likely there will be some costly vet bills associated with the 15 or so small dogs.”
Ashton also says Atlantic Small Dog Rescue is in need of
food, crates, blankets, jackets, leashes and collars for the new arrivals.
The dogs, which are currently travelling across the country in an RV, are expected to arrive in the coming days.
As Atlantic Small Dog Rescue prepares for their arrival, they are asking that anybody willing to donate either items or funds to visit their website at www.asdrescue.com.
