FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: JOHN BERGMANN
24 Chihuahuas are being flown from Gates, NC to Robert Miller Airpark in Berkeley Township on October 7, 2012 by Pilot-N-Paws. Chihuahua Rescue Transport, Inc. contacted Associated Humane Societies to help with a sad situation. A North Carolina animal lover and her husband were caring for 32 Chihuahuas when tragedy struck and the wife unexpectedly passed away, leaving her husband to care for these dogs all alone. The deceased woman’s sister, who is a New Jersey resident was able to find home for a few of the dogs and then reached out to Chihuahua Rescue for help. They then contacted us and AHS/Popcorn Park agreed to take the remainder of the dogs. Arrangements were made to get them all to Popcorn Park so that to start finding them forever homes. They range in age. All animals will be altered before leaving Popcorn Park. Included in the adoption fee will be collar, tag, leash, all vaccinations, a 10 day medical guarantee and microchip.
What better time than now for the rescue of these dogs!! Popcorn Park is celebrating October as Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month.
