Following a successful two-day adoption event, which drew more than 900 people and found homes for more than 200 animals, the ASPCA is transporting the remaining animals rescued in late June from Lawrence County Animal Shelter in Moulton, Alabama, to various animal welfare agencies in 10 states across the country.
“We were thrilled to see so many people come out this past weekend to give these animals loving homes,” said Jessica Rushin, Senior Partnerships Manager of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. “Now we’re giving the remaining animals a chance to find homes in other communities. We’re grateful to all of our partner shelters who have stepped up and committed to getting these animals adopted.”
The animals are being transported to the following animal shelters and rescue groups:
- Atlanta Humane Society – Atlanta, Georgia
- Cat Depot – Sarasota, Florida
- Cedar Bend Human Society – Waterloo, Iowa
- Greater Birmingham Humane Society – Alabama
- Great Plains SPCA – Kansas City, Missouri
- Helping Hands Pet Rescue – Micanopy, Florida
- Humane Society of Broward County – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
- Humane Society of Charlotte – Charlotte, North Carolina
- Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County – Memphis, Tennessee
- Humane Society of Tulsa – Tulsa, Oklahoma
- Main Line Animal Rescue – Phoenix, Pennsylvania
- SouthEast Beagle Rescue – Tampa, Florida
The shelters and rescue groups listed above will care for the animals until they are ready to be made available for adoption. Additionally, some of the dogs who require behavioral rehabilitation for severe fear and undersocialization will be transported to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey, where animal behavior experts will provide treatment to help them become suitable for adoption.
