Wings of Rescue Flies Over a Hundred Dogs to North
Over a hundred dogs from the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, were put on a flight to Delaware through a nonprofit group Wings of Rescue, in partnership with The AmerisourceBergen Foundation and the Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough.
The Wings of Rescue help save pets from overcrowded shelters as well as disaster zones, transfer them to states up north with empty kennel space. The lucky pets transported from Texas on December 9th, already found new homes through the mega adoption event hosted by the Brandywine Valley SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
