BUT THERE'S ANOTHER GROUP IN NEED OF NEW HOMES.
ANIMALS STRANDED DURING THE STORMS.
KXLY'S ALYSSA DONOVAN IS WORKING FOR YOU WITH HOW
A SHELTER IN NORTH IDAHO IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
8 DOGS ARE SETTLING INTO THEIR NEW TEMPORARY HOME
AT THE PANHANDLE ANIMAL SHELTER TODAY....
AND THEY TRAVELED HERE IN CLASS.
FIRST CLASS THAT IS...
MANDY EVANS, PANHANDLE ANIMAL SHELTER
When you have a natural disaster you have the shelter
animals already in the shelters yet you have these
stray animals that really need help.
THAT'S WHERE DOG IS MY CO-PILOT COMES IN.
THEY PICK UP THE PUPS AND FLY THEM TO SHELTERS ACROSS
THE COUNTRY THAT HAVE SPACE FOR MORE PETS.
HELPING CLEAR OUT THE SHELTERS IN AREAS HIT HARD BY
It's great because they can bring in and relieve the
pressure off of the shelters and bring the animals
to shelters like ours that have the space.
Lizzie and the other 7 dogs will spend 10 days in
quarantine before they are ready to be adopted.
OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS...THIS PILOT DROPPED OFF NEARLY
50 DOGS AT SHELTERS ACROSS IDAHO....
AND SINCE THEY WERE ALREADY SHELTER DOGS BACK HOME
THEY'LL ALL BE LOOKING FOR A HOME.
We'll announce when they are ready for adoption and
we'll adopt them out into new homes.
MAKING EACH TRIP THESE PILOTS TAKE WORTHWHILE.
