Over 250 homeless pets have been moved out of an overwhelmed animal shelter in rural Arkansas. The Bissell Pet Foundation worked with over a dozen rescue partners to help facilitate the effort to get the dogs and cats to other animal shelters and rescue agencies.
On January 19, the Bissell Pet Foundation posted images a dog named Suzette, who had been at the Humane Society of the Delta for nearly a decade. Bissell Pet Foundation writes:
Sweet Suzette❤️ This precious dog was at the Humane Society of the Delta for the past 9 years and despite the love all the staff had for her, they knew she needed a home to call her own. Last week during our Support the Shelters Rescue Road, Suzette was brought back to Michigan thanks to Harbor Humane and over the weekend she already found her forever family! How could you resist this sweet face! We are all beyond thrilled about this happy tail!
As reported by WREG News, a total of 30 cats and 240 dogs were relocated from the overburdened Arkansas shelter.
On January 20, The Bissell Pet Foundation posted more photos of another dog who was helped, and shared her story, writing:
Another Arkansas transport from earlier last week, Ginger Gypsy. ❤️ This sweet purebred German Shepherd was dropped off at the shelter because her owner decided he did not want her anymore after not giving her any attention for 3 years. She was very timid and nervous around other dogs, but in just one week at her foster home with Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue in Michigan you can see the progress she has made. It’s like a whole new dog!
