The rescue agency stated:
UPDATE ON OLYMPIC ANIMAL SANCTUARY-12/24/13**:
STEVE MARKWELL AND THE DOGS HAVE ARRIVED SAFELY!
The team on the ground has gone to work. Today they spent the entire day building 10x10 kennels. Current temperature is 65 degrees. We will be providing more details and an official statement as soon as possible.
