Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Twenty-six puppies got a second chance at life today, all thanks to a partnership between the Companion Animal Alliance in Baton Rouge and the Norfolk, Virgnina SPCA.
CAA's shelter could no longer house the overwhelming amount of puppies brought in, like these dogs still housed at the shelter.
So CAA teamed up with an animal transport group. They'll take the young dogs to a non-kill shelter in Virginia.
This is CAA's second puppy transfer. Back in May, 24 dogs made the same trip.
CAA Executive Director Kim Sherlaw says the group still needs your help to get animals in Baton Rouge in to loving homes.
"We like to encourage the community to support our upcoming transfers, but also come to the shelter here and adopt. If we increase our adoptions locally, we won't have to send our puppies out of state," said Sherlaw.
CAA officials say they will get more opportunities like this to help save animals. They plan on hosting a third puppy pick up in July.
