A huge rescue mission is underway to save 200 dogs from kill shelters in Puerto Rico.
Several charities have teamed up to pool their resources and money to fly the dogs on Wednesday from overcrowded kill shelters in Puerto Rico to no-kill shelters on the east coast and eventually loving forever homes.
Rescue organization The Sato Project is working with The Humane Society of the United States and Wings of Rescue, which is providing two airplanes, to save the pooches from being euthanized in Puerto Rico which has a near 99% kill rate because there are too many strays and not enough shelters.
The expensive mission carries a $130,000 price tag and the groups are still in need of more donations before tomorrow's big trip. You can help by visiting The Sato Project's crowdfunding page at YouCaring.com/TheSatoProject.
