The Peninsula SPCA has teamed up with the Freedom Riders Project of Georgia to save the lives of 18 homeless puppies.
The homeless puppies were facing euthanasia in overcrowded open admission shelters in southern Georgia.
PSPCA members described their responsibility as an “Adoption Guarantee shelter.”
“In our new role as an Adoption Guarantee shelter, we’re now able to reach out to other animal sheltering organizations that face the heart-wrenching reality of having too many homeless animals to care for, and not enough space to hold them,” said PSPCA Executive Director Ellen Thacker. “Being able to offer our shelter resources to groups like the Freedom Riders Project of Suzie’s Friends, and to give these pups a chance to find good homes here in Virginia, is at the heart of our mission.”
The puppies arrived at the Peninsula SPCA shelter located on J. Clyde Morris Boulevard on Thursday.
The dogs will be available for adoption starting Saturday.
