SeaWorld Rescue crew member adopts displaced pet

Posted: Updated:

RANCHO SANTA FE (CNS) - A pug-Pekingese mix displaced by Hurricane Sandy and brought to the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe will be adopted Friday by a SeaWorld Rescue crew member who fell in love with the pint-sized dog named Lassie during a cross-country flight.

Jessica DeCoursey of Virginia will officially adopt Lassie after veterinarians at the Helen Woodward Animal Center check her out Friday morning.

Several East Coast shelters sent their dogs and cats west when the storm rendered their facilities unusable, and Southwest Airlines brought a plane full of animals to San Diego.

Lassie was treated for skin rashes, given a dental check up and had some benign tumors removed at the Helen Woodward Animal Center, and Decoursey applied to adopt her.
