Update: 1/27/18 First flight from Puerto Rico landed safely and right on time. Twenty three dogs and five cats, escorted by Becky Burton and Colleen Harrington, were welcomed at Morristown Airport by our eager transport team. Within the hour they were enjoying their lunch back at the Madison shelter, completely unaware that they will soon be back in the arms of their families.
The plane refueled, loaded on empty airline crates needed for the next group of passengers, and then headed back to San Juan. Also on board the return flight were two special canine passengers whose families are moving back home now that repairs and conditions have improved where they reside in Puerto Rico. Another flight arrives early afternoon Sunday and the reunions will begin Sunday evening.
We’ll keep you updated here and on Facebook. Exciting, heartwarming weekend news at St. Hubert’s. The first groups of pets belonging to Puerto Rico residents who relocated to the mainland will be welcomed at Morristown Airport on Saturday January 27, and Sunday January 28 and will shortly be reunited with their families! Due to our expertise in efficient long distance animal relocation and disaster response, we were approached by an animal welfare individual in Puerto Rico and the JPB foundation to be the lead partner and hub site in the newly formed Puerto Rico Unite initiative.
We will be facilitating the reunions of pets and people separated when Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico last fall. Many who needed to relocate to the mainland immediately had no way to bring their pets with them and others who need to relocate have not yet done so because they do not want to leave their animal family members behind. Puerto Rico Animal Unite is the answer to both scenarios and removes the barriers of transportation availability and/or financial constraints so that families can stay together.
The goal is to assist 1,000 family pets to leave the island over the next 6 months with the support from the JPB Foundation to help make it possible. St. Hubert’s sent VP of Direct Animal Care & Lifesaving Partnerships Becky Burton and Transfer and WayStation Coordinator Colleen Harrington, who are handling mainland logistics, to Puerto Rico and they will escort the canine and feline passengers into Morristown Municipal Airport on the first flight into New Jersey this Saturday morning.
On Sunday evening a number of families now residing in the tri-state area will come to St. Hubert’s to pick up their pets. The other pets will either be transported by St. Hubert’s to reunification sites across the country in specially equipped vehicles or flown to locations in the far western half of the country. St. Hubert’s partners at shelters along the varied routes will be on standby to assist as reunion sites and to ensure pet care in any unforeseen travel disruptions.
Our supporters are an integral part of the work we are able to accomplish—please consider joining the effort to keep ALL family members together with a special gift so that heartwarming reunions like this one will continue. https://www.facebook.com/mypetbelongswithme/videos/1817808148237967/ We will be posting updates on our Facebook page here as well! https://www.facebook.com/StHubertsAnimal/See Also: Sandy Springs Animal Clinic

Away from a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness on the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled towards the fallen palmettos. He leaped in to the air, flinging his arms towards a flock of white doves circling earlier mentioned him.
