Save Our Scruff will be rescuing pups from the Charlie’s Angel Animal Rescue, but the initiative hasn’t been without problems.

The dogs — of all types and sizes — were supposed to be brought to Canada in June, but the date had to be pushed up to mid-July when a delivery service misplaced the crates needed to move the dogs, according to Laura Bye, of Save our Scruff.

“COVID has also made thing harder,” Bye said. “We have had to charter a plane because COVID stopped international flights.”

With a charter plane it is costing Scruff about $1,000 a dog to bring them to Canada.

“We can’t keep up with those costs,” Bye said, adding in the past, some airlines have given the organization wavers to transport the dogs.

Save Our Scruff has been operating since 2014 and has found homes for about 2,400 dogs.
