40 dogs rescued from euthanasia in Houston, brought to Delaware County to find homes
Forty dogs spent 17 hours inside a trailer on the road to get to the Humane Society of Delaware County Thursday night.
They were all saved from getting euthanized in Houston. The dogs were at shelters in Houston that are overcrowded everyday. The Humane Society of Delaware County is always getting requests for puppies, but many times there aren't enough to go around.
The project started about one month ago when the dog intake coordinator at the Humane Society of Delaware County noticed there was a need in Houston. Natalie Yeager said she used to work at an animal shelter there and knows people with K-9 Angels Rescue, which is also based out of Houston.
Yeager said she noticed the rescue group needed helping saving 40 puppies and dogs from being euthanized. Yeager said the dogs were going to be euthanized because there wasn't enough room in the shelters to keep them.
Cages for the puppies and dogs were donated along with blankets and towels.
"We are going to keep adults here. We're going to keep some puppies here also to have them fixed, spayed and neutered...Some of the younger ones are being sent out into foster until they've had their shots and they're ready for adoption. They can come back and get spayed and nurtured and be ready for their families too," said Yeager.
The puppies and dogs all have pictures and a biography attached to their cage.
If you'd like more information about how to possibly adopt one of the puppies, you can contact the Humane Society of Delaware County.
