A number of pets were transported from an animal shelter in Puerto Rico to the DMV area following the recent earthquake that hit the island so that they could stay alive.
According to WJLA, the Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in Arlington, Virginia, received seven dogs that survived the natural disaster while staying at the Puerto Rican Alliance for Companion Animals, which is left without running water after the incident.
Four dogs have already found their new homes in Arlington and the other three are waiting to be adopted.

The Lucky Dog Animal Rescue has been working for saving more animals from the quake-hit areas in Puerto Rico. Noel, a male Labrador Retriever, is one of them and is “looking forward to coming to D.C. from Puerto Rico,” according to the group’s website.
Samira, a female Basenji, was also rescued in 2017 by Lucky Dog and its partners in Puerto Rico. She was found alone in a house completely destroyed by Hurricane Maria.
