Ten dogs rescued from Puerto Rico after the destruction left behind by Hurricane Maria are arriving in Rhode Island this week.

The Potter League for Animals in Middletown, RI is set to received about 10 dogs today that should be available for viewing on Thursday October 5.

The Potter League is predicting these rescued dogs will be available for adoption by next week

The animals are arriving at the St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey according to WPRI 12 and will be picked up by staff from The Potter League from there.

All of the dogs were flown out of Puerto Rico by the Humane Society of the U.S. and since The Potter League is a member of their Emergency Placement Partner Program, several animals are making their way to the Ocean State.

All of the dogs received in Middletown will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption.

State law requires them to be isolated for five days, so WPRI says The Potter League is predicting these rescued dogs will be available for adoption by next week, pending medical and behavioral assessments.

You can learn more about these animals and others available for adoption at potterleague.org.

October is adopt-a-dog month after all!
