Seattle Humane takes in animals from hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico

KING 5's Ted Land reports.

More than 150 cats and dogs are now safe in Seattle, delivered from storm-ravaged Puerto Rico.  The Seattle Humane Society took in the animals in the largest rescue ever organized by the group.  

Cats and dogs arrived at King County International Airport in a charter airplane around midnight Monday.

Volunteers, Seattle Humane staff and officers from the Bellevue Police Department unloaded 154 animals and took them to the group’s new $30 million adoption center in Bellevue.

In August, Seattle Humane brought in dozens of pets evacuated from Texas following Hurricane Harvey.

The airlifts allow shelters in damaged areas to open up more space for incoming animals.

Seattle Humane says to check its website for updates on how to adopt the animals.
