Dogs rescued from plane crash are up for adoption
These canine accident survivors are looking for a forever home.
According to the Washington Post, more than 50 dogs who survived a plane crash are up for adoption.
The flight from New Orleans to Wisconsin crashed into the Western Lakes Golf Club in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Along with the 53 dogs, three human passengers made it out alive.
The puppies, which are at-risk rescues, were part of a planned trip by the Southern States Humane Animal Welfare Society to shelters in the Waukesha area.
All of the dogs will be available for adoption in the coming days, according to Maggie Tate-Techtmann, director of the Humane Animal Welfare Society, who spoke at a press conference.
“It’s just about comforting them and taking care of them,” Tate-Techtmann said. “Every animal is different, just like us, so we’re all going to react a little differently, but between our behavioral care and our medical care, I’m very confident that we can put them all at ease.”
Tony Wasielewski, an assistant fire chief who responded to the wreckage, brought home one of the fur babies and named her CeeCee.
After the accident, HAWS staff veterinarians examined all the dogs and returned 21 to HAWS and the rest to partner shelters.
The animal welfare organization has also launched a fundraising campaign on Facebook, where it has already raised over $7,000 for “medical and other unforeseen expenses resulting from this incident.”
