More than two hundred at-risk pets from Louisiana and Texas were flown to the Pacific Northwest Saturday in hopes of finding them a forever home.
Wings of Rescue in partnership with GreaterGood.org and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals helped to relocate the pets.
One hundred thirty-four were flown to Everett and 82 went onto Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
The animals were relocated because they were at overcrowded shelters who needed assistance moving animals out.
The 134 animals that arrived in Everett will be going to Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), The NOAH Center and The Humane Society of Skagit Valley for adoption.
