Dogs and Cats fly out of state to find forever homes

Local

Several rescue pets are flying into a new life, literally.  Wings of Rescue, an organization from Los Angeles, came to Louisiana to save over 200 animals with the help of  Acadiana Animal Aid.  
 

Ragady Dan… A cat who was found stuck in a bumper is one of many animals flying into their forever homes. 

 Janine Foucher described Dan as playful and sweet, “he has a burn on his neck, his ear, and his paw is broken an will have to be amputated… but I bet he will be adopted within days of being there. “

Janine and Erin Robbins boarded many pets from Acadiana to go to no kill shelters throughout the Pacific Northwest. 

Janine says, ” as a shelter we provide them with everything they need.. then they’re adopted by these receiving shelters out of state.” 
She says only 53 percent of animals in Louisiana are adopted and the rest…are euthanized.  She adds as a community, these numbers can change. 

Janine, “We don’t have to be there, there are many places where 90 percent leave alive… Spay and neuter your animals so we don’t have to euthanize. “

The 200 dogs and cats will fly  for six hours until they will land in Seattle Washington where they will meet their forever homes in less than a week.
