Check out the 53 dogs that just survived a snowy plane crash and are up for adoption
· · Nov 20, 2022 ·

Seriously — how often does a chance to have a dog with this backstory like this come up?!

A plane flying from New Orleans to Wisconsin crashed Tuesday morning just outside Milwaukee. In it were 53 rescue dogs. ...

All three people and 53 dogs on the plane survived, though the three people and some pups suffered minor injuries. Staff veterinarians sent 21 of the dogs to Humane Animal Welfare Society for further treatment, and the rest to other shelters in the area, according to The Washington Post.

Here's a pic of the crash:

Maggie Tate-Techtmann, a director for the Humane Animal Welfare Society, said at the press conference that all the dogs will be available for adoption in the coming days as soon as they are ready.

Imagine being a dog who survived a plane crash. You could tell all the other dogs at the dog park what a wild ride down it was.

Here are some photos of these pups:

Some of the dogs have already been adopted by the first responders; the rest have been sent to shelters across southern Wisconsin.

If you live near Milwaukee and want a dog with a legendary backstory, you better hurry!
