At 4 a.m. on Sunday, our transport crew loaded 41 canines on a aircraft to security.
These pets got here from 9 overcrowded, under-resourced Texas animal shelters the place they confronted dying. Caramel, Roux, Penn, Crimson, and 37 different canines had been flown to shelters in Idaho, Utah, and Colorado, to be adopted into loving properties.
Austin Pets Alive! and American Pets Alive! coordinated this lifesaving transport, connecting the Texas shelters with receiving organizations Animal Mates Alliance, Idaho Humane Society, Freedom Sure Hounds, My Second Residence Rescue, and Paws for Life Utah.
