More than 100 pets arrive in Colorado from Puerto Rico

Dogs and cats from hurricane devastated areas of Puerto Rico traveled to Colorado to find a forever home.

CENTENNIAL - A plane full dogs, puppies and cats living in hurricane devastated areas of Puerto Rico made its way to Colorado in hopes of finding the animals new homes.

About 90 dogs and puppies, along with 18 cats flew into Centennial Airport Tuesday night following the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

The Dumb Friends League says animals arriving in Colorado will be spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations before being eligible for adoption. That’s expected to take three to four days.

In addition to the Dumb Friends League, Denver Animal Protection, Aurora Animal Services, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Pueblo Animal Services, Larimer Humane Society and Boulder Valley Humane Society will be taking in the homeless animals.
