Seven homeless dogs from Saint Lucia have arrived in the United States.
Confirmation came from the Bruno Project here.
According to the project, a regular visitor to Saint Lucia paid for the animals to travel via American American Airlines cargo.
The benefactor was unable to come here this year because of COVID-19, a Bruno Project official explained.
The organisation said in a statement that the animals were healthy when they left here on Saturday.
Fox 19 Cincinnati reported on the arrival of the seven homeless dogs in the United States.
“Our priority is making sure that we save as many lives as possible,” it quoted SPCA Cincinnati VP of Operations Mike Retzlaff, as saying.
The SPCA will be putting the dogs up for adoption.
However the Bruno Project here has disclosed that it has another 60 homeless animals in Saint Lucia for adoption.
Therefore, the project wants Saint Lucians to help in providing homes.
The Saint Lucia Animal Protection Society (SLAPS) which provides shelter for dogs and cats is facing closure.
It’s because the property it now occupies in the North of Saint Lucia has been sold.
As a result, the organisation is looking for a new home.
The Bruno Project was founded here in 2016.
It’s website says since then, over 500 dogs have been given ‘new lives in forever homes’ in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
