Puppy reunion on the Suncoast

  • 0

SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - A New York National Guard rescue worker was reunited with her puppy from St. Croix on Wednesday. 

A puppy left homeless after Hurricane Maria was reunited with it's caretaker after two months. 

Last October, Nate's Honor Animal Rescue in Lakewood Ranch received 24 homeless dogs and cats displaced by Hurricane Maria in St. Croix. 

Among those animals was a litter of puppies that had been found and cared for by soldiers from the New York National Guard, who were deployed to assist Virgin Island Police. 

One rescue worker quickly formed a bond with one of the puppies, and vowed that when she returned to the united states, she would give this puppy a home.

Five and a half weeks later, the puppy has been flown to Florida and has been getting prepared to go home with it's new owner.

Of the 24 dogs and cats that Nate's Honor Animal Rescue received from St. Croix, 16 have already found their forever homes.
