WAUKESHA, WISCONSIN: Over 50 dogs and all the people aboard a plane that crash-landed onto a golf course have survived and it is nothing short of a miracle. Now, there is more happy news. The furry friends who were onboard the plane are up for adoption!

There were apparently three adults aboard the plane, all three of whom were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. There were 53 dogs onboard, all of whom were taken in by a bunch of local humane societies that are currently treating the dogs for minor injuries. What is more, is that they are now spreading the word that some of the dogs are ready to be adopted and taken to their forever homes.

The plane had crashed onto the Western Lakes Golf Course in Wisconsin’s Pewaukee City. According to CBS, the plane had apparently ‘belly-landed’ onto the fifth hole and the wings were ripped off as it crashed through the trees in the green.

Maggie Tate-Techtmann, the Director of Organizational Development at the Human Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) of Waukesha, was present at the press conference about the incident. She had said that the plane was conducting a "planned transport" of the dogs when it crashed and that many of the dogs had to be taken away for treatment. However, they’re all safe and they’re all available for adoption! She said, “Our team is very good at jumping into action…so we were ready to jump into action.”

"All dogs are doing remarkably well," Tate-Techtmann told Milwaukee's Journal Sentinel this week. "Everyone pivoted so well. I tell them all the time to be prepared for the unexpected, and the team did a remarkable job meeting the needs of these dogs today. Some are already out having fun in the snow and are on the road to finding their forever homes." 


The Facebook page of the organization has also slowly begun to post pictures of the furry friends from the crash whom they hope will find families and people to adopt them. One of their post captions reads as such, “Meet the HAWS Western Lakes Loves! After our transport plane crashed yesterday, HAWS was able to take in 21 of the 53 dogs, while the remaining went to The Washington County Humane Society, Elmbrook Humane Society, Humane Society of Sheboygan County, and Humane Society of Jefferson County. Today, 7 of those 21 dogs are available for adoption! Our adoption and viewing hours today are 1:00pm-5:00pm. We hope to see you today so that you can get to know our Western Lakes Loves and give them a happy furever home!”


While HAWS of Waukesha had taken charge of 21 dogs, there is no new information about the 32 other dogs taken in by other welfare organizations and when they will be up for adoption at the time of publication. Please contact Washington County Humane Society, Humane Society of Sheboygan Society, Elmbrook Humane Society and the Humane Society of Jefferson County directly for more information.
