ASPCA transports 89 dogs from shelter
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is funding the transport of 89 dogs from the East Baton Rouge Animal Shelter to Pets Alive animal rescue centers in Middletown and Elmsford, N.Y. The transport offers the dogs relief from crowded conditions and a second chance for adoption.
The dogs — mostly small mixed breeds and large breed puppies — will be placed for adoption by the Pets Alive shelters. The transport operation began Aug. 27 and was scheduled to arrive in Westchester County, N.Y., on Aug. 28 and in Orange County on Aug. 29.

“Companion Animal Alliance of Baton Rouge is incredibly thankful to continue this partnership with the ASPCA,” said Kimberly Sherlaw, executive director of Companion Animal Alliance of Baton Rouge. “Through their network and strong national ties, our shelter was able to organize this life-saving transport effort. We are an open-admissions facility, struggling with an antiquated building, limited resources and intake rates of 20 to 30 animals each day. We are thrilled to know that 89 dogs will now have the opportunity to find loving homes.”
