NAPLES, Fla. - The Naples Humane Society added five new members to its family and just how these four legged friends made the trip to Southwest Florida is sure to break your heart.
The puppies were flown in on Saturday by a rescue group who saved the group from an animal shelter in New Orleans that could no longer look after them. The dog's owners, some of whom were fisherman, were left without work and could not afford to keep their family pets.
The shelter that originally had the dogs was forced to euthanize more than 900 animals back in June.
Some 58 flights on Saturday carried more than 160 animals to new shelters across the country. All of the pets were rescued from Gulf states that were impacted by the oil spill earlier this summer.
The Humane Society will be open on Sunday and adopting one of the rescued dogs is only $125. The price includes vaccinations, a microchip, a month's worth of health insurance and having the dog's spayed and neutered.
