(GEORGETOWN, Del.) - The Brandywine Valley SPCA is once again saving animals from across the country.
Today almost 100 cats, dogs, and puppies were airlifted from two over-crowded shelters in Mississippi to the Delaware Coastal Airport in Georgetown.
The dogs will be taken to the Rescue & Rehab Center in Georgetown to be medically evaluated and get ready to be adopted.
On December 8th and 9th, you can find them, along with over 1,000 other animals at the Brandywine Valley SPCA's Mega Adoption event at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington. The goal here is to give more families to save animals by adopting versus buying from a breeder.
Walt Fenstermacher, Delaware Director of BVSPCA explains, "We know that there are shelters across the country that are over-crowded, that there are animals in every state that are really looking for new homes. Thankfully we host this event twice a year to be able to help those pets. So we think that it's a great thing to adopt and we hope that folks will really get behind that. This is our first flight into the Georgetown airport and we're very excited, we have tons of volunteers out to help and we think that the community is really excited for those pets to arrive."
Wings of Rescue helps BVSPCA save animals across the country. This is the 14th rescue flight from their partnership. Together they've saved more than 1,000 lives.
