Eight dogs got a second chance at life today, thanks to the Naperville Area Humane Society and their partnership with Oklahoma shelters.
This morning, volunteers delivered three dogs and five puppies to the Human Society to save them from being put down due to over crowded shelters in Oklahoma.
“The need there for homeless animals to find their forever homes is so great that we really felt compelled to be able to help them,” said Angie Wood, Executive Director for the Naperville Area Humane Society. “There are a lot of puppies there that unfortunately, the whole spay and neuter message hasn’t hit home. They still have a lot of unwanted litter of puppies.”
The K-9’s were put into the system and given new collars. They will spend the weekend getting used to their new environments.
“We’ll let them settle in for a few days and then on Monday we’ll put them through a behavior evaluation and that just helps us place them in a home that we feel is appropriate for them,” said Michelle Lenz, Animal Care Manager at the Humane Society. “Chances are, they probably won’t be here more than a week.”
