What do you do when you need to get 47 small rescue dogs from the west coast to the east coast in a single day? You call in the air support! The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation joined forces with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, Last Chance for Animals, Animal Advocates Alliance, and North Shore Animal League America to fly the animals from overcrowded shelters in Southern California where euthanasia is eminent to the North Shore Animal League's facilities in Port Washington, NY.
The trip began on Sunday, January 31st and took thirteen hours in a private plane provided by Cloud Nine Rescue from San Bernadino to New York, where they landed in the early hours of February 1st. The move is expected to yield positive adoption results on the east coast, where small dogs are enjoying increasing popularity. Once safely checked in at the NSAL's facility, each dog received complete professional medical care and screenings, behavior evaluations, spay/neuter procedures, and grooming. Once this process is completed, the dogs will be adopted into carefully screened homes.
Congratulations to the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation, the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, Last Chance for Animals, Animal Advocates Alliance, and North Shore Animal League America on a job well done!
