ASPCA Transport Hits the Road…Again!

Animals receive quick medical exams.

Guest Blog by Kristen Limbert ASPCA Animal Relocation Manager

We're at it again! As part of our monthly transport program, the ASPCA just relocated 33 more dogs from Louisiana to New Jersey. In partnership with the Louisiana SPCA, AnimalWorks and St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, we're able to bring a group of southern dogs to the Northeast, where they are more likely to get adopted—and we can do it every month!

A unique part of this transport is our partnership with AnimalWorks, a Tennessee spay/neuter group. Located at the trip's halfway point, it is the perfect pit stop. Our transport team is greeted by staff and volunteers, who help us offload all the dogs, as well as walk and play with them, giving them a nice reprieve from the cages on the truck. 

Vets and vet students are also on hand to provide quick medical exams—checking for any signs of illness, injury or stress that would preclude a dog from making the rest of the journey. So far, all the dogs have handled the trip beautifully!

We have no doubt that this group of canines will find loving homes just as quickly as our April batch did—and we sure are happy help give them that chance.

Wow! Great program and congratulations! Keep up the effort because in so many instances you are the animals' only advocate.

I live in New Orleans and we're overwhelmed by overpopulation. I'm so excited that these awesome pups are getting a chance. My 2 dogs from the LA-SPCA are amazing and I know that whomever gets to keep these dogs will be as lucky as I am. Have fun pups!

Its great to see any effort to put dogs in likely places for people to adopt them This is a great program. We also often put up information about dogs needing adoption on our website here. http://www.cockapoocrazy.com/

In Lewisburg, TN the only animal shelter is a small 20 dog capacity building. Last week they had 28 dogs on the premises. They were contacted about the adoption of 9 of these dogs. The were claimed for adoption. Unfortunately, the shelter, (knowing that the dogs were to be adopted within a matter of hours) decided to euthanize 13 dogs. All the 9 dogs claimed for adoption were killed. After receiving a small amount of media attention this shelter has vowed to euthanize all dogs every three days.

Please sign this petition to demand investigation into this matter.

Thank you for your time.

Dear Lovely ASPCA,
Thank you for being there to help the helpless.

Do you think you could convince someone in San Antonio to join in Animal Relocation sponsored by the ASPCA?

There is a park in the SE part of town with (according to the news) 26 stray dogs. One woman rescued two litters when a bigger stray attacked a puppy. I am sure animal resources is out their noosing the poor dogs and taking them to their deaths. Not a good solution because there will be 26 more next week. San Antonio needs help.

San Antonio is a lot behind in such things as cruelty free treatment of animals. A friend who is a police officer has asked our non-caring animal cruelty people to please not noose a poor little dog he had found next to her dead partner. The "thing who had them in her yard" went to jail, not for long, it will never be long enough..
