Update, June 11: Some of these cute pups are now available for adoption. Please visit our adoptable dogs page to learn more about them.
On Friday, May 30, BrightSide Animal Center welcomed 10 small dogs flown to us from California, where they were to be euthanized. Wings of Rescue, an organization of volunteer pilots, saves many dogs by relocating them to other shelters. Eight of the 10 we received are puppies.
BrightSide’s high-save mission means that unlike many shelters, we will not euthanize healthy, adoptable animals. At BrightSide, puppies and kittens too young to be adopted are cared for by dedicated volunteers in foster homes. In our “fospice” or foster hospice program, volunteers take in pets whose age, infirmities or terminal illnesses make them poor adoption prospects, so that even those animals can enjoy a loving home for the rest of their days.
These new dogs will be assessed for medical condition, behavior and personality and treated as needed for them to be ready for adoption. When ready, they will be posted on our Adoptable Dogs page. Photos by Jerry Boysen, BrightSide Animal Center.
