Ollie is still looking for his forever family! This adorable boy was rescued from a hilltop home after the hurricane in Puerto Rico. He was abandoned in a small crate with no drinking water for days, along with his two canine friends who are also now at Animal Haven. They were all suffering from a terrible skin infection. But the great news is that Ollie and company are on the mend and ready to find their families. He's great with other dogs and would probably be fine with cats and children as well. He is a true love who wags his tail every time he sees a smile. Ollie will brighten your day! Please help him. LIKE, LOVE, SHARE or ADOPT. #animalhaven#adopt#pittiemix#hurricanemaria
For more information on adopting Ollie go to animalhavenshelter.org or come to the shelter directly at 200 Centre Street in NYC.
Thank you @sophiegamand for his beautiful photo!

The Ex-Lax factory in Puerto Rico, beneath the island flag and storm-tossed palm trees. It's one of many drug companies that don't pay federal income tax on products made in Puerto Rico. New tax plan changes that and taxes goods made in PR at 20 percent. Down the road are Johnson and Johnson and Medtronic. Island leadership incl Governor and San Juan mayor say this tax provision would be a catastrophe for their people. #onassignment in #puertorico#hurricanemaria#exlax#taxplan
“A bad decade about to get much worse — “Now Puerto Rico is bracing for another blow: a housing meltdown....If the current numbers hold, Puerto Rico is headed for a foreclosure epidemic that could rival what happened in Detroit, where abandoned homes became almost as plentiful as occupied ones.” # hurricane #hurricanemaria#puertorico#housing#crisis#foreclosure#nytimes#read#reading
So... we have “stable” power! We are actually connected to a huge generator until the grid is fully repaired. All our walls and roof are repaired, will be sealed and painted soon. Wooden stairs are being treated and sealed, waiting to be installed as soon as all repairs are done... And someone is eating all the cement. 🐶🦇🐷 #itsbeenexhausting#hurricanemaria#hurricaneyenyen#yenyenthedestroyer
Syndia has been living without electricity for three months in Utuado, Puerto Rico. Here she’s rigging a solar powered lamp to the living room light fixture to get a little light in the evenings. Hear more of her story in our project Sin Luz: wapo.st/sinluz, or wapo.st/sinluz-sp in Spanish. Learn more about the making of the project on PBS @newshour tonight. #puertorico#hurricanemaria#sinluz
La naturaleza se transforma se renueva por eso es cíclica ,nosotros somos cíclicos por ende me renové con María ,me transformé y le doy las gracias por hacerme mejor persona ! Triste por quienes tomaron el tren al cielo pero feliz porque están gozando ,triste por aquellos que aun no entienden que lo que vivimos fue algo inesperado y quieren seguir su vida de fantasia material ,feliz x los q valoramos mas la vida y lo que tenemos y triste por los que empeoraron como humanos porque personas son todos pero para ser humano tenemos que tener alma corazón y piel de la dura de esa q aguanta la tormenta mas fuerte! Somos de sangre fuerte no solo de tres razas,tenemos sangre de todos lados s que pisaron esta Isla con coraje de lucha y exploración ! Así q si q somos fuertes y estamos bendecidos desde el día uno en e q salimos del volcán y comenzamos a florecer !Gracias al Divino creador por darnos este regalo ! El cambio es la eterna constante y a mi me encanta!
Y los que se levantan desde afuera del país Arriba que la vida es del que lucha !

Bayamon Puerto Rico
Here I’m pouring out rain water that has been dripping inside Eloilda’s house from the second floor down to the first. She lost her roof and the rain had been non-stop for many days. She had buckets, garbage cans, storage bins and even Tupperware containers catching the water dripping from her ceiling. She is in her 80’s and not in the best health to be able to lift the containers to empty the water. The stagnant water became breeding ground for mosquitos and her house was full of them. I emptied all the container and they were full of mosquito larvae.
Hello from 30,000 ft! Heading to Puerto Rico to assist with restoring power to the island. Looking forward to what should be a great experience. I will be away from my family for 32 Days during the holidays but it’s for a great cause. Follow along as I post photos from my trip.
