Little Shelter raises the bar on rescue as we take on on our largest cross state rescue operation. A transport of 30 dogs who were at risk for euthanasia is arriving at Little Shelter around Noon on Sunday. The dogs have been taken from multiple high-kill shelters in Texas and are being transported in a vehicle caravan across states. Little Shelter staff will meet the caravan in New Jersey to complete the last leg of the journey.
Little Shelter’s Dog Program Manager is personally overseeing the operation to ensure that the dogs reach their destination safely. “Over this past year we have pushed the boundaries of our rescue program farther than ever before. This is the largest cross state rescue we have done and it really shows that big things do happen here at Little Shelter.” Commented Director David Ceely.
The dogs are of various breed mixes, range in size from 8 to 25 lbs, and age from 8 months to 9 years old. Many of these dogs are expected to be available for adoption after a brief quarantine period. Little Shelter is currently accepting donations to help cover the $2,500 cost of the transport and fees to rescue these dogs.
