PUPPIES LOOKING FOR A SECOND CHANCE – Denkai Anumal Sanctuary in Weld County has stepped up to help 45 puppies facing certain death because of human miscommunication.
The puppies are among 60 from Southern states originally targeted to go to Maine, but because of a miscommunication regarding Maine state law and vaccination requirements the dogs, once committed to rescue, stayed put. The pups are from “crisis kill” areas such as Arkansas, Louisiana, Georgia and other states. These areas have few resources for pets in need, according to Denkai.
Denkai was contacted for help by Going Home Animal Rescue And Transport of Oklahoma. Another rescue group agreed to help with 15 puppies, and Denkai offered to help the other 45.
Denkai wiil hold an adoption event at the Aurora Petco from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m . on Saturday, May 4. The address is 3511 North Salida Court. When the dogs arrive that morning, Denkai will have its veterinarian on site providing health checks, She will be available for consultations and questions as needed for adopters.
Each puppy adoption fee will include:
•2 month supply of heartworm preventative
•30 days of pet health insurance
Denkai is seeking 30-40 volunteers to help. Contact Denkai at: adoptioncenter@denkai sanctuary.org or call (970) 454-3353
