Story
Please reference www.DefensaAnimalDePuertoRico.org/Adopt  to learn how adoptions work with Defensa & Rescuers.  Adorable Ramses is looking for a home! Here is his story as told by his rescuer: "Ramses and Moises are one-year-old corgidor (mix of corgi and labrador) siblings, vaccinated, neutered, and dewormed. They are very social, affectionate, calm, charming, and beautiful dogs. They were abandoned at the community park in San German and lived there almost two months, without basic needs for a good life. They did not have a ceiling to protect them from rain or sun. Despite their rough start, they are amazing dogs, just looking for love and affection, and they get along great with cats and other dogs."
