Thanks to this generous contribution 71 dogs were relocated from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles area, where they were at imminent risk of euthanasia, to the no-kill Columbia Humane Society (CHS) shelter.
Columbia Humane Society is a facility located in St. Helens, Columbia County, Oregon and has a demand for adoptable pets that exceeds the supply from local shelters and rescue groups. The ASPCA funded transports took place on January 13th and 26th, saving the lives of 30 and 41 dogs respectively.
In 2014, the JDHF transport initiative found new homes for a record 1425 companion animals, easily surpassing the previous record mark of 1140 set in 2013. Thanks in part to the ASPCA's support, 2015 is off to a great start, with 135 cats and dogs already relocated to new homes and new lives. Fingers crossed we will be setting another new record come December 31st!
