32 Small-Sized California Dogs and Puppies Saved From Euthanasia!

Animal League America continues its life-saving humane relocation program that transports animals from overcrowded shelters to the safety of our no-kill adoption headquarters

On April 8th, 32 puppies and young mixed-breed dogs arrived at North Shore Animal League America’s campus after their trip from Baldwin Park Animal Shelter and other overcrowded municipal shelters in L.A. County.

The dogs, who range in age from puppies of about seven months old to young adults up to about four years old, include a wide variety of mixed, small-breed Mutt-i-grees®. As with all our rescues, the dogs are being evaluated medically and behaviorally. They will begin going up for adoption this Saturday, April 13th, at our Port Washington, NY, headquarters

“These adorable dogs, which include Chihuahua mixes and some of the cutest scruffy Mutt-i-grees I’ve ever seen, were in grave danger of being destroyed simply because the municipals shelters where they lived had become full,” explains Sylvia Ottaka, Senior Director of Operations at Animal League America. “All of them will make loyal, loving companions to the lucky individuals and families who adopt them and give them the lives they deserve.”

Joanne Yohannan, Senior VP of Operations, adds, “Our humane relocation program saves wonderful, loving animals from shelters and rescue groups all across the country. By doing so, countless numbers of animals have been matched with families and individuals in the Tri-State area, where the demand for these pets is great, and adopted into permanent homes.”

Our humane relocation effort has been Animal League America’s most far-reaching program to date, responsible for saving hundreds of thousands of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens since the program’s inception in 1991.

The dogs in yesterday’s rescue were part of our life-saving collaboration with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.
