Beauties like these dogs have been saved with help from the MCSPCA.

The Monmouth County SPCA is serving as a drop-off location as 200 dogs are rescued from being 'put to sleep.' The MCSPCA has happily accepted the request to be a drop-off location for over 70 dogs that will arrive in NJ today!

(Sato Project)

The Sato Project, which is a non-profit rescue that focuses on the thousands of stray dogs in Puerto Rico, has teamed up with The Humane Society of the United States as well as Wings of Hope and have committed to flying the 200 dogs to the U.S. on 2 planes.

The dogs will then be dispersed to shelters along the east coast to be placed up for adoption. If they hadn't been rescued, these beautiful dogs would ultimately have faced euthanasia as over 90% of the animals that enter the shelter system in Puerto Rico do not make it back out :(

The MCSPCA has always had great success in adopting out Sato dogs, since they believe that all animals deserve a second chance. The MCSPCA also want to thank The Monmouth County Freeholders along with the Monmouth County Highway Department for generously donating floodlights to assist in the drop-off after dark, and Wegmans of Ocean for donating food for the 50+ staff and volunteers helping with the drop off.

The dogs will go to the MCSPCA, the Animal Rescue Fund of East Hampton, The Sato Project, and Animal Haven of NYC. They will undergo medical and behavioral assessment and be placed up for adoption within the next few weeks.
