An Ulster County animal rescue recently helped with the recovery of a dog from Guatemala.

According to a press release, the newly opened Ulster County Canines in Saugerties assisted in helping a dog named Mami in Guatemala. The Mayan Dog Rescue connected with Ulster County Canines through a follower of both rescues and notified them of Mami who was starving and wandering the streets.
