BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Before and during the pandemic, A Place For Ace dog rescue was transporting around 20 dogs a month from an overcrowded shelter in San Antonio, Texas to the Boston area, placing them with fosters until they can find their forever homes. But in the post-Covid world with inflation continuing to rise, more and more dogs are being returned to shelters and donations and fosters are drying up.
“We’re trying really hard to stay open right now, we have a higher chance of staying open with more fosters who are patient and understand it’s a process. And of course donations. Just to get one dog here from Texas it costs $600," owner Meagan Hanley told WBZ NewsRadio's Kim Tunnicliffe.
“The only thing it entails is keeping the dogs safe and loving the dog until the forever home comes; we pay for everything," Hanley said.
