Hey, Denver-Boulder dog lovers! Are you looking for a new best friend?

Thirty-two rescue dogs, fresh off a 27-hour journey from Thailand, are now wheels-down in your metro area.

Boulder-based Underdogs Animal Rescue, in their first effort to bring in animals from outside the United States, worked with Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai to bring these dogs to a better life.

The Thai shelter rescues both elephants and dogs, and with 470 of the latter in its care, it needs all the help it can get to help. The 32 dogs, rescued from the nation’s dog-meat trade, will now be adopted into loving homes here in the States.
