You may not have realized it, but chances are someone you know, a friend, neighbor or family member, will be going undercover this weekend. It's nothing illicit, in fact, far from it.
Those ordinary people are going undercover in an effort to save the lives of thousands of pets stranded in animal shelters across the country, waiting for a forever home.
Right at this moment, there are thousands of pets sitting in animal shelters, waiting for a family of their own. At the same time, there are thousands of families waiting to open their hearts and their homes to them. But what happens when the animal and the people are in two different communities? That's where the K9 express comes in.
It usually begins with an e-mail. K9 Express members are always looking for online alerts with transport or rescue in the subject line. Then a network of volunteers all across the country, most of them living in communities along major interstate highways take action.
