FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, October 12, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Big Dog Ranch Rescue is a non-profit organization that saves hundreds of dogs in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. On average, the kill rate of animals in Puerto Rico is 99 percent. With a population of over 500,000 dogs that's continuing to grow, Big Dog Ranch Rescue of Florida has stepped in to save the day.
On Friday, October 9th, Big Dog Ranch Rescue chartered a flight from Santuario Canita in Puerto Rico, the largest sanctuary on the island, to rescue about 125 dogs - the first of what they hope will be many flights, as the sanctuary is currently inundated with over 800 dogs. Once the sanctuary numbers have been decreased and they can properly care for their animal population, any additional funds will be used to send a spay neuter van for a veterinary-assisted mass sterilization.
More about The Big Dog Ranch Rescue
This nonprofit focuses its efforts primarily on Southeastern states, but it also saves dogs from international disaster zones, such as hurricane-battered Puerto Rico. The Big Dog Ranch campus – which includes a veterinary clinic, a quarantine facility, special cabins for moms and their pups, and plenty of room for romping – can accommodate about 600 dogs. Each gets a medical exam, is microchipped, and is spayed or neutered. Ninety-eight employees and an army of volunteers keep everything running.
Donations, which can be made here: https://www.bdrr.org/puerto-rico-rescue-donate, are essential to raise the funds for more than this one rescue flight.
