Thanks to a grant from ASPCA, 22 dogs from Corpus Christi Animal Care Services packed their bags & left for Minnesota this morning to be adopted. This is the largest shipment from our facility to transfer animals to other parts of the country as an animal management option to find the dogs forever homes.
The relocation grant program is funded by the ASPCA and according to their website, http://www.aspcapro.org/relocation, the program provides funding for the cost of actual transport of the animals that include fuel, hotel services, and the drivers. The grant also pays for the preparation for transport like the veterinary care, vaccinations, health certificates, and spay & neuter services. The ASPCA started the relocation program in 2011 for the purpose to transfer dogs from overcrowded shelters in the south to less crowded facilities in the north for a better opportunity for adoption of the dogs.
Don’t worry, there are plenty of animals at our facility which need loving homes. If you need an addition to the family, go to our facility at 2626 Holly Road and find a new friend!
