Law firm helps re-home strays overseas

Canine Friends has transferred 13 stray puppies to a no-kill shelter in Pets Alive Westchester in New York, thanks to funds donated by the Appleby Cayman Charity Day initiative.

Canine Friends, which was established in 2012, says it has rescued 103 puppies and adult dogs from the Department of Agriculture over the years.

“The safety and well-being of domestic animals is important to our staff,” said Bryan Hunter, managing partner of the Cayman office of Appleby.

“We are delighted to see that the donated funds have already been put to good use and that the puppies are well on their way to finding new homes thanks to our help,” he added.

Animal welfare is one of three primary areas that Appleby (Cayman) is supporting this year through its Charity Day.

Canine Friends has also facilitated the transfer of more than 300 dogs to no-kill centers in the United States and Canada, organizers said.
