Animal League Rescues 21 Dogs from Overcrowded Shelter in Kansas City, Missouri
On Thursday, December 29th, North Shore Animal League America rescued 21 mixed breed dogs, Mutt-i-grees®, from an overcrowded shelter in Kansas City, MO where they were facing possible euthanasia.
After receiving a call for help from the KC Pet Project, the Animal League deployed a rescue team to the Midwest. KC Pet Project is preparing to take over full control of the Kansas City, MO animal shelter and urgently needed to free up cages in the extremely overcrowded shelter to allow for more incoming animals.
Our rescue team immediately transported the 21 dogs back to Animal League shelter headquarters in Port Washington, NY. The dogs range in age from 3 months to adult, with breeds including Labrador mixes, Shi Tzu mixes, Shepherd mixes and many other adorable
Because of severe overcrowding conditions at most municipal shelters these adorable dogs were at risk of being euthanized, as well as facing a high probability of illness.
As with all of our rescues, the dogs will receive complete medical examinations and evaluations by Animal League veterinarians and behavioral experts to ensure that they are healthy and happy. Any necessary care and treatment will be administered and all the dogs will be spayed and/or neutered. The Animal League will work to find the dogs loving families, as we believe that no rescue is complete until every pet is placed into a loving home.
As these dogs become ready they will be put up for adoption at the Animal League campus in Port Washington, NY.
