205 pups, young and old, were airlifted from Puerto Rico earlier this week so they could finally be given a better life.

The mission, which was conducted by the Humane Society of the United States, is believed to be the largest airlift rescue ever completed in a single trip.

The dogs had been sentenced to euthanization due to an overpopulation of wild and feral canines. The abundance of pups then leads to overcrowding in animal shelters, many of whom don’t have the resources to care for such numerous animals.

Thanks to the animal organization Wings of Rescue, the dogs were airlifted to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and North Carolina. They will now be distributed to various shelters throughout the United States.

In light of their positive overall condition, Humane Society representatives have expressed optimism about the dogs’ futures.

“They’ll all get adopted,” shelter director Mary Steffen told the Associated Press. “They will go fast.”
