Diane Levesque, owner of Refuge Balto in Vaudreuil, is calling out to the community to help place 118 dogs coming into Trudeau Airport this coming Saturday, May 15, at around 8 p.m.
"Before the pandemic, we always had five or six dogs periodically arriving from Mexico," Levesque stated in an interview with WIN. "This came to a halt during the pandemic."
The cost of the flight for the pups will be close to $75,000. With vet bills, vaccines, grooming and a host of other costs, this project will cost around $168,000, according to Levesque.
"We have placed 65 dogs at this point and hope to place the rest as soon as possible. Each new owner will pay $1475 when they pick up their fur baby after they have been cleared by the shelter."
