Seventy-two dogs took a one-way trip to Michigan, Wednesday morning, where they will be dispersed to various shelters in the State, to be adopted by families.
Bahamas Humane Society (BHS) teamed up with Michigan Humane (MH) for this first- time collaboration and very successful mission. The dogs were flown to Michigan by Wings of Rescue, a charity organisation that flies at-risk shelter pets from disaster areas and overcrowded shelters to safe havens. This Freedom Flight was sponsored by the Kohler family.
Michigan Animal Rescue League board member, donor and consultant, Ralph Caplan, worked with Duke & Lisa Wells in The Bahamas, to instigate this rescue mission between the BHS and Michigan Humane. After seeing the overcrowded conditions of the shelter, Caplan was compelled to help in any way he could.
