North Shore Animal League America’s Mutt-i-grees® Express conducts another life-saving humane relocation mission

On January 10th, 32 puppies and young mixed-breed dogs arrived at the safety of North Shore Animal League America after their trip from Baldwin Park Animal Shelter in Los Angeles.

The dogs, who range in age from puppies of about 8-10 weeks old to young adults up to about five years old, include Chihuahua mixes, Yorkie mixes and Poodle mixes, among others. Almost all are small-sized dogs.

After being evaluated medically and behaviorally, these beautiful Mutt-i-grees will begin to be placed for adoption on Saturday, January 12. 

The dogs were rescued in a life-saving collaboration with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which shares our goal to rescue, nurture and find as many loving homes as possible. 

Co-founder and actress Katherine Heigl said, “Saving the lives of innocent animals is a mission of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, and this rescue is just one of the many ways we can work together to end the euthanasia of 10,000 pets a day.”

“We are proud to collaborate with the Heigl Foundation to save precious lives,” said Joanne Yohannan, Senior VP of Operations at Animal League America. “We’ve already saved over 120 dogs in just a one-month period as a result of our joint effort, and we look forward to saving many more in the months and years ahead.”

Animal League America is dedicated to finding permanent homes for as many innocent animals as possible, and we need your support. Please click here to donate to our life-saving work, or click here to find out more about all the animals available for adoption.
