After nearly 20 hours on the road, one of North Shore Animal League America’s Mobile Rescue Units pulled into our Port Washington, NY headquarters in early October with 65 dogs and puppies rescued from Huntsville Animal Services, a municipal shelter in Alabama.

Fifty of the 65 dogs are puppies, estimated to be about 8 – 12 weeks old. All are mixed breeds, including Terrier, Lab, Dachshund, Chihuahua and Shepherd mixes. The remaining 15 are small adult dogs, also mixed breeds.

All of the animals were evaluated immediately by our medical staff and behavioral team. Most were spayed or neutered soon after their arrival. While many were placed for adoption here at Animal League America, several of these wonderful dogs and puppies are still available.

Our relationship with Huntsville Animal Services began in April 2010, when Huntsville was hit with some devastating tornadoes, creating an even more serious situation in an area that already suffered from an overwhelming surplus of dogs and cats in need of homes.
“Unfortunately, our community in Alabama  produces an excess of adoptable dogs and puppies,” explains Dr. Karen Sheppard, Director of Huntsville Animal Services. “Our relationship with North Shore Animal League America is a blessing. It’s impossible to describe how much joy it brings to all of our hearts here at the Huntsville Animal Services and in my animal-loving community when you arrive at our shelter and rescue so many innocent animals.”

Animal League America rescues dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from a variety of circumstances, including animals at risk of euthanasia from overcrowded kill shelters, primarily in the South. These wonderful animals, or Mutt-i-grees, can be canine or feline, young or old, mixed or purebred. But they all have in common one thing: They are looking for a permanent, loving home.
