Meet Ricky: a Dog from Puerto Rico Now Living in Brielle, NJ

Ricky

Ricky is now living the life in Brielle, NJ with his proud new owner. Life hasn’t always been so easy for Ricky. While his new owner was vacationing in Puerto Rico, he was made aware of Ricky, a local dog who was in need of a forever home. All the locals in Puerto Rico helped take care of Ricky, but no one was able to give this sweet boy a long term home.

That’s where PAWS Puerto Rico Animal Welfare Society stepped in. PAWS has basically three missions they try to accomplish.

1) Cut down on abandoned animals by making spaying/neutering affordable.

2)Adopting out homeless animals and helping strays through adoption or ‘spay and release’ programs

3)Providing education about spaying/neutering

They helped arrange travel plans for Ricky to fly from Puerto Rico to Brielle, NJ and all the locals who were desperate to get Ricky a home also chipped in as much as they could.
