NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — Dozens of adorable at-risk shelter dogs arrived in New Jersey Tuesday looking for new homes on the East Coast.
Fifty pups with heartworm disease were airlifted from New Orleans and Alabama to Morristown, N.J. so they could be treated before being put up for adoption, according to a spokeswoman for Greater Good Charities. The cute canines were placed in crates and were transported on the “Save a Heart Flight” with a team of professionals overlooking their care.
The puppies are asymptomatic and were taken to the St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey, for heartworm treatment. They’re getting post-treatment monitoring until they are ready to be adopted, the spokeswoman said.
