Jennifer Deane, president of Pit Sisters, wasn’t expecting to take in any more dogs, on the eve of Hurricane Matthew.
But the rescuer was told that some shelter puppies would be euthanized if they weren’t out before the terrifying hurricane was due to arrive in Northeast Florida.
She couldn’t leave them to that fate.
“Luckily some foster families stepped up so we were able to get them this morning and get them to their foster homes,” Deane tells Shelter Me. “They are scared but seem to be healthy.”
The three puppies — Sprinkles, Precious, and Baxter — are safe now, at their foster homes. It’s heartwarming — and, alas, costly.
Next step: They will need vaccines, and spay/neuter surgeries. So Pit Sisters is asking for donations, to help cover these puppies’ expenses.
They will also need more long-term foster homes, once the storm passes. Fill out a foster application on the Pit Sisters website.
The storm will be brutal. The puppies will get through it.
