I feel terrible about dogs waiting for homes in other states, but I don't agree with going to the time and expense of tranporting them here, when we are euthanizing adoptable dogs and cats (by the hundreds!) right here in Minnesota. We need to get our own problems solved and then reach out.
AHS: Have you no shame?
25 Oklahoma dogs arrive in Minnesota looking for a second chance
Updated: 5/20/2009 2:16:05 PM
Twenty five adult dogs from Oklahoma arrived at the Animal Humane Society Wednesday morning looking for families that will give them a new home.
The dogs are part of an effort called "Save Our Strays" operated by a group in Oklahoma. These are healthy dogs that would have likely been euthanized due to a lack of space to house them.
Since April, more than 140 dogs have been transported from from Oklahoma by the "Save our Strays" rescue group. The dogs have a few days to get acclimated and be checked out by the AHS vet team. They will then be available for adoption at various Animal Humane Society locations.
