Del. animal shelter set to receive dogs impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

On Thursday, a local shelter announced that they are set to take in over 20 dogs in the ongoing recovery efforts following the devastation left by Hurricane Maria, in Puerto Rico.

The Brandywine Valley SPCA says on Friday, 22 dogs will arrive at the Georgetown Campus as a part of the ongoing recovery efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. The BVSPCA reports that the dogs are expected to arrive around 11:00 PM, in Georgetown.

The animals are apparently part of an airlift from San Juan, PR, to Morristown, NJ, led by HSUS and flown by Wings of Rescue. 

BVSPCA says the dogs will be medically evaluated before being placed up for adoption, in Georgetown.
