Another date has been set to ship off additional dogs for adoption in their new mainland homes.
According to Lauren Cabrera, Boonie Flight Project Founder, there will be another “boonie flight” on Saturday, April 24.
Cabrera said that they have already selected 8 to 10 puppies from GAIN to send off-island.
“And we’re trying to get them homes so we can send them in two weeks,” Cabrera said.
She added that there will be another flight in May as well.
The project has been achieved through fundraisers, which are being done by Happily Ever After Rescue Team (HEART) Guam and Guahan Paws 4 Pets.
The project aims to assist GAIN’s shelter by sending GAIN dogs and puppies off-island for adoption.
The goal is to send 200 boonie dogs to new homes, rescues, and shelters all across the mainland US by the end of 2021.
More than two dozen dogs and puppies already took the boonie flight out of Guam on Saturday afternoon to their forever homes in other states.
The Boonie Flight Project was developed in response to the stray animal population in Guam.
The project sent 25 dogs off to their new homes in the states.
All dogs were shipped off to various parts of the mainland, such as New Hampshire, Vermont, Seattle, Indiana, Alaska, New York, Texas, and Washington D.C.
Saturday’s ship-off was a success, according to Cabrera, who is a co-founder of the project.
Cabrera says all dogs are currently on layover in Hawaii and are expected to arrive at their destinations by Wednesday, April 14.
