Sixteen dogs transported from Puerto Rico to southern Colorado in the wake of Hurricane Maria will be available for adoption at Pueblo Animal Services and the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.
The Pueblo Animal Services gave a temporary home to 13 dogs, while the Humane Society took in three.
The dogs are still being processed but should be available in the next few days, said Gretchen Pressley, Humane Society spokeswoman.
The dogs flew to Denver from "overcrowded" animal shelters in the areas impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Pressley said in a statement. Seven Colorado shelters are aiding in the shelter relief efforts.
