MEDFORD, Ore. -- After a two-hour plane ride from Bakersfield, California and a 30 minute drive from the Rogue Valley International Airport to the Rogue Valley Humane Society in Grants Pass, 14 dogs are about to embark into the next chapter in their lives. Wings of Rescue flew all 14 little dogs into the area this afternoon. Volunteers said the shelter the dogs were at in California was over-crowded and the dogs were at risk of being put down. The Rogue Valley Humane Society volunteers said they had room at their shelter for the animals.
“Unfortunately what's going on in Bakersfield is they have way too many small dogs that are not moving. Because we live in a senior community a lot of folks are looking for those smaller dogs,” said Rogue Valley Humane Society’s Executive Director “We were down to 5 dogs so the timing was perfect. As soon as Rick, the CEO of Wings of Rescue, gave us a call and said ‘Hey, can you help us out?’ again, timing was perfect.”
Varner said the public will be able to see the dogs as early as Monday. They’ll be available for adoption within the next two weeks.
