Dogs from LA seek new homes in Oregon
EUGENE, Ore. - A cargo truck full of dogs from Riverside, California, made the 17-hour drive to Oregon to be rescued by various local dog shelters in the Willamette Valley.
Luv-a-Bull Pit Bull Rescue and Save-The-Pets, two animal rescue organizations from Eugene, received a total of 20 dogs from Shelter Transport Animal Rescue Team, the dog rescue transport based out of Los Angeles, California.
The dogs, including a pregnant pit bull and two litters of puppies, will be adopted out in the area.
Riding along with START is a film crew sponsored by Adoptapet.com. The crew is shooting a documentary on interstate dog rescue transports featuring Luv-a-Bull Pit Bull rescue.
The START dog rescue transport arrived at a Shell gas station in Eugene at 7 a.m. Thursday morning, dropped off 20 dogs to two different local rescues, and headed off to Albany to drop off more dogs at shelters there.
