Dogs from local animal shelter to find new homes
HIALEAH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Dozens of dogs from a South Florida animal shelter are headed to new homes in Maryland.
As part of the Miami-Dade Animal Services "Pets on the Move" campaign, the homeless canines will get a second chance to find a family.
They are all packed in kennels and ready to make the trip. "Well, every year they have a big adoption event, so they ask us to send a couple dogs over to them," said Animal Services Coordinator Jessica Garcell. "It's usually about 30 to 50 dogs. Today we have 42 for them."
Later on this week, cats from the shelter will also be sent to Maryland for new homes.
